I Lay

Poetry

My weights are heavy

And my words are insufficient

To bring about any change

So in Your arms I lay

Unworthy of this love

You’ve so freely given

I shackle myself to shame

You still hold me and promise

To give me a new name

From trapped to freed

Ashamed to forgiven

Weighted down and burdened

To a child of God

My thoughts alone can’t bring this change

So under Your wings I lay

You Say

Poetry

My shame tries to claim me

Tries 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,

Give ThanksĀ 

Poetry

Grateful for trials 

For hard times and growth

Grateful for treasures

For pleasures, for both

Grateful that falling

Finds wings to take flight

Grateful the valley

Gives way to great heights

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
