A revelation that expands over time,
giving insight and time lines.
Taking a step in faith, as the Lord
sees fit to release this precious talent.
His present to me, a gift not fully
opened yet.
Allowing me to display these thoughts,
suffering in silence deep within my burdened soul.
Getting further down, exploring those
hidden secrets not yet revealed.
Experiencing the depths of the pit,
that is never to deep for God's arm to reach.
As I strive to grab hold and climb out,
and cover up the hole dug in the past.
Now letting go,
moving forward to an exspectant future.
Living one day without fear of what will transpire tomorrow.
Learning from hindsight those decisions that came to pass,
whether they were good intensions or unfamiliar consequences,
still being developed in and through me.
Placed on paper as a memory, evidence, or truth.
Written to encourage, give insight, inspire or reproof.
A journey that measures how much or little you've grown till now.
Still searching for unknown answers yet to be disclosed.
Expressing a surface of emotions, indulging each one
that has made instrumental changes in my life.
A challenging adventure that one day
will come to a glorious end.
Reaching out to tear off the mask and
finally the veil, the hidden secrets
beneath the inner parts of my soul.
A transparentcy that becomes over time
new growth ...
Broken, Surrendered, and Real.
To glorify God's purpose and plan
He has chosen for just the right moment in time,
a new season for my life.
Therefore, experience is a hard teacher ...
It's the Lord's testing ground ...
Then the seasoned lessons come ...
Some sooner, some later throughout our
lives.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV

Almost stream-of-consciousness--I appreciated this journey through a writer's spiritual life.

A few spelling errors: expectant and intentions come to mind.

Very nice imagery here.
