You.Are.Free!

freedom

Ripped apart and torn to shreds

she bows her head and goes to bed

Listless life with nothing more

she turns herself into a whore

Her body’s beauty he stamps out

And when she looks at him he shouts:

“Worthless girl so full of shame

You’re the one who is to blame.”

He smacks and beats her to a pulp

until she loses all her hope

She lives in fear and misery

for fear that she cannot be free

Empty life and empty soul

It’s not enough, he wants more

She bares it all in hopes that he

will someday see who she can be

But nothing satisfies this pain

All for loss and none for gain

Shameful girl lift up your head

Alas my friend you are NOT dead

There is one who sees what you can’t believe.

One whose pain was for your gain

One who went to Calvary

to break the chains and set you free

So remove your woeful frock of shame

and take up victory as your name.

You.Are.Free!

New Beginning

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In my loneliness and solitude I cried out in anguish:

“What about me?  I am the forgotten one left in the black hole of misery and defeat.  The one for whom everyone has an answer.  I am the one whose fear rises up and conquerors me.  The same one that tells me that this isn’t right but then goes back to justify it.  I’m the one who says enough but stays around to take some more.  I’m the one who wants new life but the one that’s scared to live.  One foot in and one foot out….what about me?”

The wonderful thing about a New Year is a new beginning. You get a chance to reassess the past year and see how life has gotten better or worse.  You get to start over.  Sometimes the first step is the hardest one to take on the road to recovery.  “Therefore old things are passed away….” Remember that the past is yesterday.  It’s behind you but what lies ahead of you when you choose to walk with the Lord is the path to peace and wholeness.  It’s where the new you and the new life await you.  Don’t let fear keep you where you are.  You are never alone.  When you feel the walls closing in on you look up and remember that He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hold your head up high and remember that with every step you take forward you are smashing the plans of the enemy.  The bible says in John 10:10 that “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.”  If you are living a life that includes addiction, abuse, bitterness, hatred, uncontrollable anger….the list goes on then you are living a life of destruction.  Your life is being robbed.  You deserve better and you can have better.  Later in that same verse Jesus says, “The gift of God is eternal life.”  Life is a gift and one that we should treasure.  Choose today to walk away from destruction and into the gift of life.  It’s time for a change.

Let’s Talk About Fear!

Healing words of Faith and Hope

According to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary, fear is “an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm.”  It’s living behind a mask that veils who you are.  Moments of fear are like panic attacks that completely consume you.  You step outside of yourself and explode causing you to react in a ridiculous manner.  Sometimes you sink further into yourself and implode as you cower, hunker down and try your best to prepare for danger, pain or harm.  You feel compelled to go against what you believe to be right in hopes to prevent that thing from happening.  You use words that you probably don’t mean.  You run.  You hide.  You cry.  The longer you linger in said fear the more you begin to chip away at that which makes you who you are.

Ah, but wisdom….Proverbs 1:7 says that, “The fear of the Lord is the…

Dear Sister,

I just wanted you to know that you are loved.  You are special and your value is far more than fancy clothes, expensive jewelry, monetary gain and/or status.  You are sought after by the one whose very essence is love.  You are beautiful and you are precious.  No matter how far off track you may feel or how much you hate the sight of your own visage there is someone who is greater who looks at you with love.  There is someone who sees the beauty in spite of the pain and someone whose love is never ending.  There is someone whose love will never hurt you, never abandon you and never leave you out. There is someone who is always rooting for you, always hoping the best and waiting for you. This someone will never give up on you and will always believe in you.  Dearest sister…
