Present In The Pit

Bound by a chain of darkness,
I was a prisoner to my sin.
I had the best intentions
In the eyes of men.
Right in mine own eyes,
I could not see Your truth.
I was the queen of innocence
In my wayward youth.
Yet down from heaven You came
To reach me in my pit.
You took the veil from my eyes,
And helped me to actually see it.
Washed, cleansed, renewed by You.
You left the ninety nine.
Because You came for me,
I am Yours, and You are mine.
No longer bound by chains of pain,
I’m free to receive Your love.
No need for false security.
Your presence is enough.

Inspiration: That You would come down into my pit of darkness and fight for me, even if it was me You had to fight. Tough love is a soul saver! ❤

WELCOME!

Adventure to my house of pain.
I want to drive you all insane.
First I’ll take you to my room
And let you see the face of doom.
Blood and slime, dripping wet.
Spiders hanging from their webs.
You’ll get tangled in the chains
I use to keep my guests restrained.
Knives hang high upon the skulls
Of those I found to be so dull.
Be careful of the skeletons.
Small and large, and bigger ones.
Watch your step along the way.
You just might cross body decay.
Then again you may discover,
Once you enter, you won’t recover.
So once again, I welcome you.
I just can’t swear you’ll make it through.

PS. My old writing is not pleasant at all sometimes.
I am so glad God changed my heart, my life, and my writing!
God is my hero!

The Heathen’s Rage WILL Perish

The heathen rage
and rage so fierce,
throwing punches
and words that pierce.
Weapons that kill,
and actions that wound.
Lives and testimonies
are ruined.
Determined to destroy
everyone in their path.
Raging at life
and spewing their wrath.
Sometimes it feels like
only despair remains,
as though the righteous
are in the heathen’s chains.
Yet God in His word
is passionate to warn
not to covet
and not to join.
Judgement WILL come.
God’s wrath WILL prevail.
The heathen WILL perish
and be cast into hell.
