I just found this poem/song from 2006 while going through old journals and I don’t think I’ve ever posted it. Lots and lots of questions in these old journals and it’s encouraging to see how many of those questions have since received answers or just gone away. It’s a lovely reminder that seasons are just that… seasons – they don’t last forever – they change. Harsh winters do turn into beautiful springs. Happy Sunday 💗

A pretty face – torn up heart

Missing pieces – falling apart

Looking for a seamstress

Holding the thread

Where do I begin?

So many blessings

But thoughts so confused

Wanting serenity

But it will only approach

Like the waves

Calm this sea

Make sense out of me

Put to rest my questions

Lay out Your path before me

I am at the brink of despair

With so many doubts of why I am here

Put an end to this wrestle

Please calm me, wash me 

and my fears


Tested Faith

In the darkness, hope becomes visible
It’s the glimmer of light around the bend

In doubt, faith becomes tangible 

Turning trials into a dearest friend
James 1:2-3
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance


Remember in the Dark

I came into His inner roomAnd heard what He had to say

It spoke deeply to my heart

His love and grace was bright as day
Then as I was walking

Things started turning dim

Obstacles began contrasting

All I’d heard from Him

Luke 12:3
What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.


You Say

My shame tries to claim meTries to define and name me

But You have something 

different to say

You say I’m a child of God
My past tries to haunt me

Tries to destroy and taunt me

But You have something 

Different to say

That I am forgiven and loved
Not chained to my sin

But to Your presence within

I am free to let go and grow
Galatians 3:26

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,
