My head remains down and focused at His feet as the surrounding fire rages all around me. I replace my vision of the struggle with a vision of the cross instead. I do not see the struggle ~ I see Christ who has already conquered the struggle. I am choosing not to focus on the […]

With you as my shepherd, I never have needs Down paths of righteousness, you always lead Now as I go through the valley of shadows dear Lord Take my hand one last time and I will follow REFRAIN: Oh, my Lord, I’m so ready to leave this world So take my hand and lead me […]

How good is grief for our growth It makes us travel certain roads Down difficult paths we would never venture If not forced to, by such displeasure. Grief refines us, makes us grow It begs us to seek Him and search our souls Such levels of intimacy with the Lord Can never be taught, or […]

May my words fall silent If my tongue wants to lie. May my pride be exposed If I become haughty in life. May my jealousy be subdued If I envy what isn’t mine. May my anger be dissolved If I seek revenge for a wrong. May my greed be squandered If I desire selfish pleasures. […]

When struggles are present Will I remember Your name? Do I focus on all that eludes Or trust with unwavering faith? When tears are shed And fear rears its head, Do I foster those thoughts Or believe You instead? A little discomfort may be good for the soul To make me think and help me […]

Insecure… as a little girl. I love mommy and daddy, I silently cry As I shake and tremble throughout the night Always praying they will hold me tight. Naked images all around Sex in my home is something foul It makes a grown man big and proud To use his women and throw them around. […]

Many times it’s come to mind… “Your tears are o.k. here” he said, so kind. I’m always afraid to let them fall to allow these feelings which are so raw. I have permission to just be myself insecurity and weakness revealed, no doubt. To become that vulnerable and stripped of my pride it frightens and […]
