The Song That Got Away

Of the things I lost fighting for my destiny was my song. I cannot number the day or the hour but I stopped singing. The fullness of God’s presence was not there; I had no reason to sing. But I was around Jesus believing people, doing stuff that He said we should do. Where did…

Scream Intently

Winnowing the delicate sores upon my heart in stride I notice that sorrow is where suffering and purpose collide An explosion of mercy depicted as raindrops on a face Witnessing the collision, I’m just a bystander in space Surreal, how one can endure such agony and live to inform Bearing the unbearable has seemingly become…

Doubtful

Brimming are the reserves where doubt is stored. As one need is supplied another need cries out in discomfort. There’s constant inward, and sometimes outward struggles to regain ground by faith.

Surprisingly Free

Freedom caught me by surprise As hardship and uncertainty in disguise The Holy Spirit gave remembrance and I realized That not only did God hear me, He healed me too Making extraordinary use of everything I went through Noticing how my prayers shifted from “Lord remove” To, “Father, if it pleases you, give me wisdom and…
