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
