Failing to see, failing to hear, failing by a hardened heart.
Lies dealt and laid out like the broken shards of my life.
Filled with desolation, lost in the wilderness of life…darkness creeps in and I’m left drowning in the broken promises and lies of this life.
I know You are with me. Even in the darkest hours of the night, I know Your promises will crush the darkness and bring forth the light. Have mercy on me, Lord-break me free of this desolation.
Filled with pain, anger, frustration…lost in the darkness of sin, and I’m left drowning in the broken promises and lies of this life.
God, I cry out to You. Your love and unending mercy-I cry out to You. I can’t live in this world without You. God please hear my cries, wipe away the pain, brush the tears aside. Bless me with Your grace, bless me with strength to love and live within You and for You…
Emotions happen. Feel them. Ride Them. And Bounce Back. The ride will repeat> Curves will sharpen, twist, and change. But There is Bounce Back. There are others Crying in closets. There are others screaming in pillows and hitting air. You are NOT alone NOT today or on that special holiday. Nor am I. Ugly Cries and Pretty Faces. Wine, Chocolate, and Friends.
Old barns have always captivated me. There is beauty in their brokenness, isolated independence- standing strong with a lean and open windows. They are mysterious and secretive- alluring yet dangerous. Once place of hard work and vision…now something to break my eyes from monotonous plains- still valuable… as a poem, art in the landscape.
