I see you walking in the desert,
trying to find a shadow to hide in. I hear you thinking
of days gone by. I hear your regrets— I see your tears.
I heard you say ” I’m not good enough”. I saw you
struggling to walk alone, without me. You failed. I saw
you were looking for something, but you didn’t find it. You
were looking in all the wrong places. I saw your fear,
I saw your sadness. I saw your broken soul.
Dear Daughter; I was there with you. I never left your side.
You are loved. I have my hand over you, like a shield.
The incoming attacks began to bounce off of my hand
held over you.
Dear Daughter; I saw you begin to look up. I heard you say
“Lord please rescue me”. I rescued your soul; I rescued
your Heart. I shook the shackles off your life.
Dear Daughter; I saw you step out of your fears and sorrows,
I saw you begin to step out in faith. I saw you seeking me; I
encouraged you. You began to walk with me, and talk with
me, you began to learn the WAY to walk with me. I heard
you say “Lord please stay with me for I am a work in progress”.
Child, I will always stay with you.
Dear Daughter; I have your story written; believe me when I say,
you’re not done yet. Child, I fight your battles in your weakness.
I placed peace in your heart. I opened the clouds and set you free.
Dear Daughter— I heard you say, ” Take my life in your hands,
let it be all for you. I lift my heart to you”. “Lord, I’m ready,
Holy Spirit, I will go wherever you call me to go, near or far”.
“Lord, HERE I AM”.
