Jaded

Jaded

Jaded heart.
Callus feelings.
You feel
no hope.
You see
no cure.
You can’t help
but wonder if
there’s a future
for you.

You want to run.
You want to hide.
You can’t see past
Your jaded emotions
inside.

A spark of light
to melt
the pain
would soften you,
would heal you.
If only you could
see that there
is a future
for you.

You want to cry.
You want to hide.
You can’t break through
Your jaded emotions
inside.

Reach for Him.
He’ll soften you.
He is
the hope.
He is
the cure.
He can help you
and show you
you are loved.
There is a future
for you.

You want to run
into His arms.
You have been healed
of your jaded emotions
inside.

A Father’s Love

A Father’s Love

Wounded child
Battered child
Let Me comfort you
As a father should
In a loving way…
Not a hurtful way.
Let Me shelter you
Let Me comfort you and
Protect you
From your pain.
I’ll shield you
And keep you safe
Underneath the shelter
of My wings.
I’ll stay with you
And wipe away your tears.
I’ll never leave you lonely
And afraid.
Wounded child
Battered child
I love you.

Oasis

Let the Lord be your Oasis in the desert.

Oasis

Be my Oasis, Lord.
Satisfy my thirst.
Fill me up
to overflowing.

My journey through
the desert
has been long
and tiring.
I am dry.
I want to
rest in You –
in the shelter of Your
wings, in the
comfort
of Your hand.

I long for
Your
living waters.
I know that
they will satisfy
every ounce
of my being.

Restore my life,
cleanse me,
make me pure.
Make me more
like You.
I need You
to be
my Oasis

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.
