HOPE

hope is a dream

Sometimes I feel so light…                                                                                                               other times the heavy feeling smothers me.

I wonder if I’ll ever get past it all?                                                                                                       Can I be happy no matter what?

Fighting these feelings inside of me,                                                                                                    it is a constant battle I try to win.

It sneaks up on me and takes me by surprise,                                                                         knocking me off my feet…                                                                                                                 daring me to fight.

I want to run away                                                                                                                                       I want to hide…

Don’t come find me,                                                                                                                                  it will only make me cry.

I have two choices…                                                                                                                             give in and let it overwhelm                                                                                                                   or I can stand up and do my best to push it away.

It can be so hard…

I know I can be free                                                                                                                                and no longer be controlled.

I just have to be strong                                                                                                                         and let it all go.

I CAN Forgive

How can I FORGIVE?

You took all I had to give…

I feel so very empty

Hurt is all that is inside of me

Anger is now consuming

Swirling around and growing…

How can I possibly let go?

So confused… I don’t even know…

But then in the darkness

Comes the ONE who loves me

JESUS takes away the hurt, the anger

HE replaces it with something better

Love, His love, 

The love that loves anyway

Forever and Always

Even when it hurts

Even in anger

Love eases, comforts, heals

Love strengthens, reveals

In that love we see how He loves us and once again we live

Once more, surrounded by the love of the Father

I can forgive…
