Peace

This poem is written for those who have endured emotional or verbal abuse… I know the storm that rages, and I understand the roller coaster that you just can’t seem to walk away from. It doesn’t leave outward bruises and scars, but the inward “soul scarring” is a pain that doesn’t just go away with a band-aid and time.

The One who made us CAN put us back together healed and whole. In the midst of your raging battle, look to Him, from Whom your release and your peace is found.

Peace

Crashing waves
Bruise my shore
Howling winds
Blow in once more

Torrential rains
Pelt my skin
Lightning bolts
Come again

Turbulent waters
Staggered stance
Cycle repeated
In this dying dance

Trembling knees
Strike the ground
Eyes glance up
To where help is found

An instant hush
The storm to cease
All at once
A soul at peace…


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

E., Your words strike deep into the hearts of people who know, and have been there. I like...but hurt for those who've fought this fight and struggle with coming out of it. Great message. Thank you.
