ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Was snatched away from me.
When losses overwhelmed my soul,
Confusion reigned, I lost control,
Was preyed upon by enemy.
In search of way to cope,
Restriction was my stay.
Afraid of food and gaining weight,
Each bite caused me to hesitate,
And I began to waste away.
Strong pain and grief within
Just made me want to hide.
Afraid to let emotions flow,
Deep darkness stayed – no place to go,
Felt numb and even dead inside.
Withdrew so I could stay
In isolation’s nest.
It seemed that others did not care,
And life had just been so unfair,
Although I’d tried to do my best.
My life inside and out
A far cry from before.
Strict deprivation in all ways,
And physically felt such malaise -
Results from needs that were ignored.
Foe took my life away -
Felt empty and alone.
Until I let God work inside,
Revealed what I had tried to hide -
In this, His love and grace was shown.
Began to come around,
A process that took time.
In HIS strength started eating more,
Enjoyed all that life had in store,
Was given back full life of mine.
Life rich with peace and joy
Was given back to me,
When healing touch embraced my soul,
And I let God be in control,
He filled me up abundantly.
