Hope and Healing

Some suffer much

Fresh tragedy

Love gone

Lost and alone
Awash with tears
Wretched pain
Constricts the heart

 Some suffer long

Some by choice

Nurturing their wounds

Living in the past

Refusing to let go

Of days of old

Deeply scarred


Hope hidden

Hope forgotten
Haunted by grief 
Heart turned to stone

Lost in bitterness
Impervious to Love

The soul withers


 A distant knock

A fluttering of the heart

Slight movement of the soul

Touched by Word or Spirit

Aware or  not

Of the Father waiting

To enter in


Then a whisper

An inkling of hope

Light floods the darkness

Hope and healing enter in

Worked by the Holy Spirit

Sight restored, Truth revealed

The soul transformed


A child of God emerges

 Healed and whole

Knowing his heritage

Is not of this life

But found in Eternity

Heart Overflowing

Basking in Grace 


Ransomed, redeemed

Cleansed by the blood of the Lamb

Walking in the Light

Where fear cannot live

The past irrelevant

In communion with the Father

Consumed by Love
