The Moonlit Sky

As I lay down to sleep,
I gazed out my my open window.
My drapes fluttering in the gentle breeze.
The moon peaked over the horizon.
This white glowing ball, just barely lit up the backdrop of the night sky.
The light from the moon came streaming through my window.
I was mesmerized by this sight, it was so beautiful.
I looked away for a few moments, as it disappeared behind a cloud.
On it's way to take its rightful place to begin it's journey once again.

Elevated by Your Presence

I am elevated in Your presence.
Your presence quenches my thirst.
Your presence suppresses my hunger.
I feel as though I am upon a cloud, suspended in the air,
not wanting to come down at times.
I want to stay up there forever.
Your presence is everything to me.
It is indescribable.
When chaos is happening around me,
it keeps me grounded.
It brings me peace.

A Deep Groan

A deep groan.
I can't explain.
A smoldering flame.
A flickering flame.
A rekindled flame.
A burning flame.
I am tired of being lukewarm.
I desire to spit it right out of my mouth.
I desire to burn red hot.
A raging fire.
A consuming fire.
For everyone to see.
For You and Your glory.

Rising from the Ashes

Thank You for lifting me from the ashes,
As I gaze into your beautiful face. 
Your piercing eyes of Love welcome me.
Thank You for lifting my soul up to the heavens.
Thank You for keeping me safe and holding me close in Your arms.
Thank You for giving me the tools to keep me occupied, although it was very difficult at times.
Thank You for surrounding me with people who cared, especially my mother who held me in her arms until the pain subsided.
This too is for Your honour and glory.
There is a greater purpose behind this, although it is not clear at this very moment.
You shine through me in the darkness.

Honour and Glory

There must be more.
We long to feel Your tangible presence.
We long for You to come with Your healing power and heal us.
We desperately need Your touch.
We long for You to come and fill us with Your strength, peace and love.
Embrace us.
We long for You to bring salvation to our land.
It is all about You.
It is all for You.
It is all because of You.
We cannot take any credit.
You deserve all the honour and glory there is.
You deserve it all.

Tug A War

Sometimes I feel as though I am in a tug a war within myself.
When people see me they often see a person with a disability.
I have goals and dreams as everyone else does.
I accomplish them.
I am not defined by my disability.
I am a woman who knows what she wants.
I also have a romantic side.
I am a writer.
I am a social worker and a soon to be journalist.
I have many gifts and talents to offer.
I am a sister and daughter.
I desire to be a wife and mother one day.
I wish people would see me for who I am.
