A Wounded Heart

In celebration of the first day of Passover, I thought I'd share another poem. One that recently helped free my heart of some wounds. It is a progress of revisiting a past and then "seeing" the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross for me...for all of us! I don't know about all of you, but as His Beloved, I became excited about entering the wilderness today! Why? Because He ALWAYS "captivates my heart, and speaks KINDLY to me"(Hosea 2:14-15)! Let's get the heck out of Egypt!!!

A Wounded Heart

A raging hemorrhage
In the depths of my soul.
Where was He?
Where did He go?
As I lie in darkness
With no control.

A tremendous shock
That deadens the pain.
Is this real?
Is this the train?
That runs through my nightmares
As of late.

An image that scars
Repressed to survive.
Has it surfaced?
Why won’t it die?
Along with the damage
To my heart and mind.

A childhood lost
To the violent abuse.
Where is the hope?
What’s the use?
In trying to hide
The numbing truth.

A Pandora’s Box
With a Perfect Storm.
Did this reveal?
The long-ignored
Desire inside
To be adored.

A wounded heart
With an eternal shift
Is this Grace?
Is this the Gift?
For myself and others
Repent, Forgive.

A hope for love
A return of Christ.
He is here!
He is Alive!
Pursuing my heart
Restoring my life!

A child that is held
A child that is free!
Abba Father!
Joy of salvation
Dying for me!
