The Best Stain Remover There Is 



All it takes to feel dirty;

Is to find a stain on a clean attire;

It doesn’t matter that no one else can see it;

As long as you know it is there;

It makes you feel uncomfortable;

How did it happen?

Thinking you were being careful;

But it takes just a moment of distraction; 

To render something unclean;


Ever tried removing a stain;

Only to find yourself spreading the blot;

And making it worse?

You scold yourself for even trying in the first place;

All you can think of is rushing home;

Taking it off and cleaning it;

Before it becomes permanent;


Ever felt filthy and damaged;

Because of a wrong turn taken;

Or poor choice made;

Felt not good enough, a hopeless case?

Because others said and made you feel so;

Calling you a misfit;

Tried to straighten out and up your game;

But it seems the harder you tried;

The filthier you felt;


We sometimes attempt to do good;

In order to make up for the bad we’ve done;

But even the deeds we call ‘good’;

Are just filthy rags before God;

When done without Him in mind;

As works without faith in Him do not count;

However, faith without works is dead.


Only Jesus can cleanse us completely;

From any filth picked up or splashed on us;

We can only feel truly whole in Him;

He is enough to remove the toughest of stains and scars;

Repair the messiest of damages and cracks;

Will you hand over your garment to Him today?

His blood will make you new from the inside out;

Not just painted new but actually made new.

As long as we live in this world;

We might keep on picking up stains;

But the power in His blood never runs out;

So don’t hesitate to turn back to Him;

And cast your cares on Him;

He’s ever ready to relieve you.
