She Never

She Never

She
never
turned the light on
in her house
so she always
stumbled in
the dark.

She
never
knew there was
a million dollars
in her bank
account in heaven
so she never
took it out.

She
never prayed
with faith
always in doubt
like a beggar
in despair
not knowing for sure
if she was heard.

She
never knew
the promises
the peace
the joy
just the distant,
angry one
who shouldn't be
bothered.

She never
danced to the
song and rhythm
that were hers
for her mirror
reflected a
wallflower.

She never
dared to dream
delightful things
for conformity
and making sure others
were always happy
with her
kept her from
sparkling.

She was just
a typical, average
woman with
supernatural power
that was never
tapped into.

She never
grew up
but don't look
down on her
for she is
the overwhelming majority
who back down
from the challenge
for love must
sink in deep
before
risk is embraced.

She either
went infra-red
to the spectrum of fear
or ultra-violet
to the numb zone of denial
and addiction
and there
by the grace of God
go I.

Perhaps one day
she will
face
her regrets
disappointments
heartaches
head on
before the Lord
in the
Secret Place
of the Most High
and receive the
kiss of life
at the last minute.

Because Love
never gives up
is always willing
to show up
when prayer
is real
and intense.

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