Ready

Poetry

I wanted so badly to be wanted and loved

That I readily accepted a lie

And now all this wasted time later

I’m still having to say good bye

I don’t wanna waste my time anymore

Don’t want to live in a fantasy

Don’t want to keep running to you

When I know in the end we’ll both leave

I’m ready to accept something real

Ready for attraction, kindness and decency

No more faking or playing, no hiding

Ready for some new company

His Love Never Fails

Poetry

Grateful no matter where I go

You’re with me

No matter what stage, what season

You are there

Running into Your arms

I see all You teach me

Through these storms

My stubbornness gets shattered

My treasures all tattered

My humility is deepened

My sins are forgiven

Because …

“Your Love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me.”

(One Thing Remains)

Romans 8:38-39

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord

Struggle 

Poetry

There’s a little extra pain in my tears

A little more sorrow in my heart

The struggle is getting the best of me 

Each day I’m not sure how to start

One breath at a time

I slowly move forward and pray

That I’ll see something, hear a word

That sounds different than it did yesterday

The Wild

Poetry

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

Refined

Poetry

I could not have made it through without YouI could not have learned what I needed to

You were there and You provided

That trial would be useful, You had already decided

You saw what I couldn’t and saw what needed to be changed

You made it happen so thanks to You

I am no longer the same
Isiah 48:10
See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.

Here with You

Poetry

Here I am safe

Keep me in your arms

As I clean out the messes

That cause me nothing but harm

Here I am loved

Let me never forget

As I keep walking further away 

From a broken past and regret

Here I am hopeful

Fix my gaze on You

As I search to know You more

Align my thoughts with Your truth

Luke 4:32

They were amazed at his teaching, because his words had authority.

Psalm 37:4

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. 

Give Thanks 

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.
