Nothing Alone

I don’t care if the whole world doesn’t agree
With how I see You, and You see me!
If I am with You
With my eyes wide open and my heart sealed tight.
If I my eyes are closed and I only see You in my heart.
That’s okay.
Whether my eyes are open, my eyes are closed.
Whether I shout to the world, or no one knows.
Whether they comment, share reblog, retweet,
Or NOT.
Whether they never pay attention,
Or simply don’t agree.
If they can’t see You, they don’t need to see me!

I am nothing! Absolutely nothing!
Whether it makes my world uncomfortable
For me to say such a thing or not…
I DON’T CARE.
“I” have not survived anything.
“I” am not a hero or inspiration.
It is ALL YOU!
I am only who I am because of THE Great I AM.
I am nothing… ALONE.
You make me who I am…
And that is a little I am of THE Great I AM.
I am only because of You.
Therefore there’s only You.
And I love You!
Just the way You are!

He Stops the What Ifs

There’s this comparison
Battling me all the time,
Pretending we’re enemies
When we’re one of a kind.
Every whisper in my ear
Is nothing good.
“You really shouldn’t have.”
“Oh, but you should.”
All this nagging
Wearies my soul.
Contentment escapes me.
I long to be whole.
Divided within,
I fight myself.
But we have hope
Because we have help!
God unites us
In who He is.
He puts a stop to
The what ifs.

Tribulation: Life Dramatically Changed

Little girl. Authority figure. Life dramatically changed.
Life of innocence. Ugly Evil. Traumatically deranged.
Battle scars. Wounded thoughts. Walls that were not there.
Fear and dread. Guilt and shame. Heavy burdens to bear.
Loving King. Roaring Lion. Armor for the Soldier.
Sword and shield to fight the war. A pair of arms to hold her.
We’re warned in John 16:33 there shall be tribulation.
Be of good cheer, He has overcome. There is cause for celebration!
The snake will hiss, and sometimes bite. The scorpion will sting.
The dove will cover with shelter and comfort in His loving snowy wing.

Penned Through the Pages

Words of a Savior penned through the pages.
Salvation shared throughout the ages.
A King, a bride, a wedding invitation.
A Father, a Son, reconciliation.
Chariots of Fire, a mansion prepared.
Save your oil. None can be spared.
Baby Jesus, baby Moses, twins that fight in the womb.
False imprisonment, wrongful death, finding the empty tomb.
Baby Samsom, baby Samuel, my strength comes from the Lord.
Baby Isaac, baby Ishmael, sin lies at the door.
Do not fear. Don’t be afraid. Angels out of nowhere.
Fight the bear. Fight the giant. David is in despair.
Mother Mary, Harlot Mary, Jesus is Lazarus’ friend.
John the Baptist, John the disciple, a Revelation in the end.

Never Been Surer

So far away from the world,
I grow to know You more.
So far away from You,
I fear You don’t want me anymore.
The lies that follow the world
Try to convince me they’re from You,
But after knowing You personally,
I know that will never be true.
Your Holy word assures us
You love us and always will.
We are to rely on Your word,
Not on what we feel.
No one has ever been truer.
No one has ever been purer.
Nothing and no one
Has ever made me surer.
The One who pursues me
No matter how much I fail,
Loves me 🙂
And loves me so well!

You See Through It All

Here alone with just You and me.
That’s the way I like it to be.
You alone within my heart and soul
Can make me feel completely whole.
When peace escapes my fretting mind,
It’s You I need to seek and find.
When burdens weigh my soul to the ground,
You bid me, “Come. Lay them down.”
You place Your arms beneath to carry,
Then linger still just to tarry.
When darkness lies to my searching eyes,
You help me to see through the disguise.
You light my world and set me free.
You smile and say, “My child, it’s Me!” 🙂

Thanks for coming for me! ❤

Descriptive Action

Frayed mind. Short circuit.
Unsure of how to work it.
Calloused heart. Dried well.
There will be no crying spell.
Damaged weapons. False alarms.
Eventually disarmed.
Strategic boundaries. Fine lines.
Everyone hides behind.
Wayward sinner. Prodigal son.
In Bethlehem it was begun.
Tainted daughter. Alabaster box.
Anointing oil for His dear cause.
Rolling stone. Bright ascension.
Before God our names are mentioned.
Tender mercy. Sweet salvation.
We have received reconciliation.
