The Cocoon

Because of pain and strife and,
The hardships of life-
I found myself wrapped up in a cocoon.
The cocoon that surrounds me is there to protect me.
Protect me from anymore pain-
Anymore shame.

I realize now that the cocoon is Godís grace-
That wonderful grace that holds me near,
That wonderful grace that makes Godís love so dear.
God has come and wrapped around me
Things I need to help me grow-
His love, His peace, His joy, His mercy, longsuffering
I feel Him all around me.

Yet, in this place I can not stay,
God has more for me than this peaceful, obscure place.
After this time of healing inside-
I feel a moving- a stirring -
I have a desire to fly!

I feel a change!
Itís amazing to me-
I struggle, I wiggle,
I push side to side!

In my cocoon a miracle came!
I went in not much more than a worm,
But God almighty took the elements that hurt-
Tears, pain, sorrow, rejection and fears
My savior took all these things,
And my creator made wings!

I must get out!
I must be free!
God and His kingdom
Are waiting on me!
