Deep set fears
To the lost
Deep set fears
To the lost
In a fog
Purpose seems to be unclear
Light lifts and reveals
Soft melodic breezes
Multicolored light streams
Glimpse of the gloaming
I’ve been set free
From sin’s snare
And death’s grip
I sit in the heavenly places
Safe at Jesus feet

I picked up the broken pieces.
Reaching for the Light of hope
To show me the way
I prayed for healing and strength
To mend broken wings
So I might fly, to try again
‘Til I reach heaven’s reward
Discouraged, Broken Wings, Healing,
Strength, Calm, Acceptance
“Our heart mends as our inner self—the central or innermost part of our identity—is wrapped around the Light inside of us, rather than around the people who have harmed us. This one small step changes the way we see things”. Suzanne Eller
As darkness creeps in,
Fear raises its ugly head.
I pray for a solution.
Suddenly light fills the room!
The power went out this evening all over town. No one seemed to know what caused the widespread outage.
It was near supper time and getting close to sunset. Darkness was slowly coming upon us and hunger was also. The silence was deafening in my home as I’d become accustomed to hearing the sound of the refrigerator, computer and hum of other appliances. Time passed slowly. I wondered how much longer we all would be without the conveniences electricity brings. I tried not to use my phone in order to save the battery since I didn’t know when I’d be able to charge it again. I prayed whatever happened would get repaired soon.
And then, after waiting an hour and a half the lights came back on! What a welcoming sight! It’s amazing how dependent we’ve become on electricity isn’t it?
Power of darkness is broken
Broken are the heavy chains
Chains that kept me accepting darkness
Darkness that now no longer remains
God in rich mercy sent His Son to deliver
Deliver me from the power of darkness
Darkness flees the embracing light
Light of the Kingdom I now possess
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed usinto the kingdom of the Son of His love, Colossians 1:13 NKJV
