Poetry and Prose
Step With Jesus
The Unspoken pain
Released in my tears of shame
Trickle down my face
And in your presence you extend
I thank you Lord for the life you gave
So that today I could be saved
All the hurts that have been apart of my life
Were buried so deeply until they were out of sight
Ever since that day in January 1999 when I accepted Christ
Your Holy Spirit has continually turned on the lights
Pointing to things long since past
That contributed to my structured house of glass
Fragile and timid, as coward and shook inside
Yet strong and confident to the world with effortless stride.
Oh I was good and you know that was true
Hmm not many people could do what I do
Yeah, that was the lie I almost believed
The truth has healing power and today I'm relieved
I am not perfect, but freed to explore the true treasures God has in store
Won't you join me and step with Jesus through his open door.

Angel wings carrying hope into our lives
Dashing out as quickly as butterflies.
God knows the time, the reason, the needs
Yet it feels as if the heart forever will bleed.
Cutting ourselves on the jagged edges of our own broken heart
Seeking solace, seeking peace this is where serenity starts.
The healing, the process, of gaining His strength.
Knowing in reality we will go to any length.
To seek, to learn, to be, to yearn
To cry to try and cry cry cry
To be His completely, to know He's there
To surrender our all to His loving care.
The pain will soften, broken hearts do mend
Only He knows who we will be in the end
Jagged edges become rounded, yet scars will remain
Our hearts will truly never be the same.
Our Hearts are His, He will do as He must.
Cradle in His loving Arms……….yes trust.
