SleeP??!?

Hear my prayer, LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.
~ Psalm 86:6-7 ~

Sleep is a Mystery!

Hurting heart
Racing thoughts
Running round and round
Could it have been different?
What then?
Lost in the crevices of pain
Tossing to and fro
Sleep is a mystery to me

Jumpy and anxious
Wondering what to do
Seeking guidance from the Lord
Yet round and round I go
Turning from one side to another
Staring aimlessly at the dark
Scenarios playing like movies in my mind
Sleep is a mystery to me

Constant state of alertness
Hearing every little noise
Desiring Your peace oh God
Still round and round I go
When will this resolve?
Will I ever be the same?
Sadness instead of slumber
Sleep is a mystery to me

Broken Heart

The moon will shine like the sun,
and the sunlight will be seven times brighter,
like the light of seven full days,
when the LORD binds up the bruises of his people
and heals the wounds he inflicted.
~ Isaiah 30:26

Broken Heart

Intense pain of a haunting past
Anguish consumes the heart
Bleeding under God’s crushing hand
Torturous to mind and soul
Struggling simply to exist
Lord, You cut the heart deeper each time
Endless lies once festering pour out freely
Creating wounds that reveal your truth
This affliction is so harsh, so devastating
Why does it have to be so hard?
You slice and rip the flesh apart
Bringing brokenness once again
To embrace Your truth means letting go
Releasing deceptions harbored in the dark
Lovingly this pain flows forth
Leaving room for a God filled heart

My Heart Bleeds

We have all waked the road of turmoil, broken hearts and pain at some point in this life.   We have all journeyed into thoughts of darkness and despair, yet still we stand! We stand because of God, despite our afflictions, despite our doubt. We stand because in our soul, the very core of who we are, we feel the very hand of God moving, stirring the heart, healing the wounds, and making us beautiful once again. Though our hearts may bleed, it is indeed God’s healing love that brings us back to a place of peace and rest. May you find your rest in Him, especially when your heart is bleeding and the circumstances appear so dark and bleak. Remember, God is there. Hold tight to Him, cry out to Him!! Let Him bring healing through and through!

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me,
Because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners;
To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD and the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn, giving them a garland instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
Isaiah 61:1-3

My Heart Bleeds

I stand broken and torn
My heart laid open before You Lord
My God, my Savior save me from this pain
Shelter me in the shadow of Your wing
Protect me from Satan’s snares
Fill me with You O God
This world hurts so much
Despite Your loving hand
My heart bleeds before You
Your desires within me are so strong
Cutting to the core of my very soul
Shattering my peace
Breaking me even more
I want You Lord to be all that I need
No one or nothing else will do
Fill me please
This is my cry
My heart’s desire is to need only You
Please, Father God heal this broken heart
