The Chasm

Have you ever felt like you are in a chasm? There is hope!

The Chasm

You continue
to cling to your
lost hope.
You’re in
a snare that
is getting much
more painful.

You wander aimlessly
to find a
bigger shovel
to make
a larger
chasm of broken
hopes and dreams.

You begin to realise
that you are the reaper
of your sins harvest.
You’ve chosen
the road
that seems easiest
to follow,
yet, your heart isn’t in
it anymore.

The hike is
too monotonous…
still, you keep going.
Is there an easier way?

Look to the Guide
for direction
and hope.
He’ll pull you out
of your pit of
hopelessness
and direct
your path.
He’ll free you
from that
painful snare.
His love is
deeper than
the chasm
you’ve made.
In fact,
He’ll fill it with
love, joy, and peace.
It will be
as if that chasm
never existed.

Hope’s Light

I wrote this on New Year’s Day. It was not only a new day, a new year, but also a new beginning. Think of this new year as a brand new start to your life… kind of like the sun rising in the morning. A new year full of new life and new hope.

Hope’s Light

Hope for a new day –
a chance to re-new.
On the wings of dawn –
a new beginning.

Arise, oh hope!
Arise and awaken.
Bring forth the future
of healing and strength.

Make known your plan
and sunrise renewal.
The horizon is brilliant
with your illuminating light.
