Cocoon

Jan 29th, 2012 by debrabee | 0

My memories held me in a cocoon. I felt trapped within. My body and mind hurt to sort them out.  I lay still, waiting for revelation of hope and truth. In this place of rest a catharsis takes place. Soon enough I emerge into freedom.

She sits in a corner wondering, “does anyone see me?” She says nothing to draw attention to herself. HE watches her and says “I SEE YOU”! HE reaches out HIS arms to embrace her with truth and encouragement. HE is gentle and slow. She has not yet eyes to recognize HIS love. Her heart is […]

Fighting Against Forces

Anger was waging war within my soul and I was right to feel it. The difficult part was understanding how to focus its rage in the right direction. Words come registering the truth of who we are and what we are meant to do. “Back off I’ll take you on, head strong to take on […]

Who Are You Praying For?

Something Of Worth

Time is precious. The value of this currency often gets lost among media pressures to spend it. None of us knows the number of days within our banks. Do we have more or do we have less? If we knew, would we spend it differently? Confronting this thought on a regular basis, we can make […]

In His People
