Deliverance

I’ve laid down in great sorrow,
I’ve cried myself to sleep.
I’ve wanted to give up on tomorrow.
I’ve felt pains unimaginably deep.
I’ve made beds uncomfortable to lay in,
I’ve drunk cups bitter and cups sweet.
I’ve lost my way and hidden in my sin,
I’ve gone places no one should ever place their feet.
I’ve been offended and others I have offended,
I’ve apologized and I’ve had too much pride.
I’ve had emotions I’ve pretended,
I’ve shown the real ones my true side.
I’ve been devoted to those who didn’t return to me,
I’ve held my ground and fought the faith fight.
I’ve walked away from places where I could no longer see,
I’ve stood in the shadows as well as in the light.
Through every season, I’ve prayed for the Father to be my guide,
I’ve wrestled with my truths, gave in to growth, and didn’t hide.
He has breathed life into dead places,
He has broken even chain.
He has shown me men’s real faces,
He has strengthened me again.
He has renewed my faith and increased my love,
He has protected me from my enemies.
He’s given grace for the journey and His angels charge from above,
My heart is glad and grateful for He has set my spirit Free.

Singing, Glory Hallelujah! I am free. Free indeed!

I am an educator, a wife of 22 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!

      1. Thank you! I know it’s just sometimes it seems the hard o pray, the more I press, the more I encourage others…I seem to have to endure more battles…I understand that the devil is attacking me but I get overwhelmed and just can’t see past the pain.
