Free

How free would I be if worth wasn’t measured in friendship

My value wasn’t defined by other’s views

My fulfillment not met by earthly dreams

My heart’s needs met by only You

How clear would my vision be if I erased the clutter

How light the load if I let the weights go

How patient the wait if I fully surrendered

How complete the path if I trusted all You told

Matthew 11:29-30

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

When There Seems to be no way

Shake off the dust

Get rid of the junk

Junk that’s been piling on for years

It’s weighed you down

Brought you down roads

That never were planned for you here

Your exit is now

Don’t miss the turn

This new road will be free and light

I’ve heard your prayers

It’s never too late

I’ll turn all this wrong into right

Isaiah 43:18-19

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.  Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Poetry

In Freedom

Do not promote guilt

When I died to set you free

Who decides which sin is worse

When this wasn’t even clarified by Me?

It is the condition of the heart

That only the Father can see

And He deals with it in grace

Not in condemnation to imprison thee

1 Samuel 16:7

“…The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

Matthew 15:14
“Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.”

Poetry

Baggage

Leave your bag at the door

Leave your burdens

All you carried here

Think of them no more

 

Tomorrow when you come again

Leave it at the door

And when you leave

You may pick it up once more

 

My hope for you one day

As you’re treading back and forth

Is that you see it’s not required

To carry your bag from door to door

Poetry

The Wild

I took a step forward And there was no trail

Nothing to follow

No crumb, no sign, no sail
I took another step

Now in the wild

Surrounded by the unknown

Adventure lurking for miles
One step after another

Still unsure what next I’d find

When the unpaved road turned

Leaving all uncertainty behind
Enveloped in pastures of green

Learning in the wild and free

No path, no fear

Just my steps, my heart and me

Poetry

Redeemer

You’ve given me freedom

A space to be me

It’s so what I’ve needed

To not live in guilt, to be free

Within these boundaries

You direct me in grace

Bringing healing and change

With every glimpse of your face

1 Corinthians 13:12

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
