I received my "Pardon" today
Wasnít as hard as I thought
Didnít have to pay anything
It was given to me, on the spot


Didnít have to beg and plead
I only spoke.... From my heart
Nothing else, was needed now
In a new direction, I would start


No waiting on the President
The decision wasnít his to make
Itís from the one who died for me
So Iíd be free to....Partake


Partake of the love he has for me
With eternal life through Salvation
Understanding.... "He" is the way
Fills me with indescribable elation

Yes, I received my Pardon today
I am free.... Like a bird soaring by
Spending dayís worshiping my Lord
My wonderful Savior  on high!

Poem by:Judith Johnson Kypta©2004

"Who is among you that feareth the Lord,
That obeyeth the voice of his servant,
That walketh in darkness, and hath no
light? Let him trust in the name of the
Lord, and stay upon His God."
Isaiah 50:10

Normally, I only add pages to this section of Wren's World after I have first shared with the ladies at our local jail.  I've not yet had the opportunity to share with them this wonderful poem... and the hope and joy that it portrays...  but I feel the need to share it with you... NOW.  

Do you know, that regardless of what wrongs, crimes and sins you may have committed during your life, there is a full pardon available and waiting for you? 

It is far more important than any pardon ever received through the legal system.

  The pardon that a judge or governor  might grant can only free you from a prison cell for a matter of months, or at best, a few years.   If you are "pardoned" from prison, the system is then finished with you.  Your free to go, and they hope they never have to be bothered with you again. But it's not likely they will truly forget about you. Trust me, they will always remember that you once were found guilty of an offense, and will be eager to lock you up again if the opportunity arises. They are not concerned that you might not have a place to go, someone to love you, or even a friend to talk with.  

When you receive your pardon from God, it is for all eternity. Imagine that... eternity is endless!  Unlike an earthly "pardon", when God forgives our transgressions, they are forgotten... tossed into a sea of forgetfulness. 
"I am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more"  Isaiah: 43:25  So if a theft or murder or adultery or a drug bust happens in your neighborhood, God won't be there making accusations to you, believing that you must be guilty because you did these things in the past.  As far as He's concerned, there is no past before your acceptance of Him and his gift of salvation... His full pardon to you.  His pardon includes unconditional love, a friend that can be reached anytime of the day or night, twenty four-seven... just by calling his name, and the promise of sharing his glorious Heavenly home.

Oh yes, there is one other thing you get along with God's pardon.  
"Though now ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory."  1 Peter 1:8  
You can see that joy in the face of the people who have accepted Christ as their Savior. You can feel it in the confidence of those that know they do not have to fear tomorrow, for He is with them... and you can hear it in the poems written by Judie Johnson Kypta. 

Ever hear of our legal system granting a full pardon automatically when you plead guilty?  Well, that's what our Lord does... you don't even have to "plea-bargain". You simply have to recognize that you are guilty of sin, ask His forgiveness with a sincere heart, and tell Him you need Him to be the friend you lean on.  Then go tell someone else about God's pardon... and be prepared to feel "joy unspeakable"!

I wish His joy for you... Wren
