Awakened

There once was a sister,

Who found herself a mister.

And you’d think she’d found a pot of gold.

But some how she got it twisted,

Or she just altogether missed it,

Because she had to give up her soul.

Unhealthy patterns started,

And she left herself unguarded,

Then, she became consumed by lies.

Distant from her real truth,

Her sense of self ran aloof,

Unidentifiable by her own eyes.

Her vision became clouded,

She forgot what she once took pride in,

And herself she began to despise.

One day, she got lifted,

And realized that she was gifted,

As the daughter of a glorious King.

All she had once discarded,

She recommitted and move forward,

And she began to feel her wings.

She took flight into her purpose,

Because at last she felt worth it,

And the rest became His-Story.

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!
