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

At Your Door

Certain things I’ll never understand 

And some of them cause me pain

But when I place them in Your hand

They never quite feel the same

The sting is dulled, hope gets brighter

Faith feels renewed and restored.

So I’ll keep placing life in Your hands

And keep my torn heart at Your door

Hebrews 4:16

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Poetry

Guidance

Sometimes you need to walk awaySometimes you need to stay

Sometimes you need to understand

Sometimes you need to turn away
Sometimes you need to open up

Sometimes you need to raise your shield

Sometimes you need to push on

Sometimes you need to stop and be healed. 
There is a time and a place for every move

Lord give us the wisdom to know which to choose.
Make our steps light 

Keep our hearts pure

As we navigate each day

May we with kindness endure

Poetry

Still Waters

A gentle breeze

Your whisper in the wind

The stream alongside

Drawing me in

A safe haven of joy

A meadow of peace

Birds chirping above

All struggles have ceased

Psalm 23:2-3

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

Poetry

Unfaithful

What part of You should I write of today?

The way You raise Your hand to stop me when I’m going the wrong way?

Or the blessings You shower down to remind me You love me and are here to stay.

How about the confidence You bestow when everything else is on shaky ground

Or the Hope you instill when no tangible reason to hope can be found

Yes those are all great. But I think there is  still another favorite I should proclaim.

When I told You I may never be faithful, You gently grabbed my hand and said “I know” and kept loving me anyway. 

2 Timothy 2:13

If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
