She doesn’t feel brave at all.
It started with a tentative unpicking
Loosing a thread
Dropping a stitch
that spooled and pooled out
all the dirt, debris and detritus
of a life lived edged by despair
and heavy with deceit
Let it out, my friend.
Let it pour as tears
cascading as rivers down your face
Allow that searing wound to be pierced,
lanced with laser-light of Truth;
be exposed, raw, oozing its badness,
ready for cleansing and healing.
Let God’s healing balm bind up the pain
as more threads are snipped
and a life laid bare.
Unravelling of mind and heart
Whispers in the dark
leaving muddy footprints
of fear, guilt and shame.
Be brave, sweet sister.
Only in the letting go
can we be free
as chrysalis to butterfly,
become all He created us to be.
Washed in Blood
Washed in Light
Washed in Grace
Washed in Love.
You are brave
You are bold
You are beautiful
And you are being
to be fully functioning
as you are intended to be.

I’m so amazed sometimes how your words speak the deep thoughts in my heart, Joy. This is such a breathtakingly beautiful poem of a wounded soul finding healing, wholeness, and freedom in Jesus. Thank you for touching my heart today.
Thank you, Trudy. I am touched by what you have seen in this poem and how it has spoken to your heart. Healing is a process, and we all need to see its possibility in Jesus, however long it may take. There is always hope of seeing change for the better! Bless you, my friend. 🙂 x

Hi Joy, Trudy posted a picture with Scripture in her last post that was quite powerful. I shared it on Facebook with a link to to her post, but she just advised me it belongs to you. Please let me know if I have your permission to do so, so I can delete if necessary, or perhaps insert a link to your site image. Thanks. Beautiful blog, by the way. 🙂
