A very real, very human need strikes me, reminding me of my very real, very human existence. I need to be rid of this pressure, or else the ache inside will eventually consume me, swallow me whole, robbing me completely of the ability to love and be loved…rendering my very real, very human, very tender heart useless.

...Exhale now…let it go...

While in the presence of the Other you are completely and utterly safe to let it all go.

As putrid air escaping the lungs of a chain smoker…let the rotten misdeeds of the past breathe their way out of your broken little girl spirit. Watch as they rest where they should have gone long ago. Watch as they leave your broken little girl frame- so burdened, so heavily weighed down- and see how gently they alight at the foot of the One who by his saving deed has crushed their power forever…See how they are completely powerless now to control you, affect you, stain you, constrain you.

...My yoke is easy and my burden is light...

This is that supernatural experience you have been waiting for. This is that knowledge that the love expressed by the One who breathed you into existence actually, really loves you…He actually, really died for you…and now He lives and breathes, for you.

Watch now as the broken little girl spirit is healed in that Presence in a way that no other presence can heal.

See her stand tall now, a woman in love…enveloped, secure, in the presence of her Creator, Healer, Lover. Wrapped in a divine embrace from which she will never be disentangled.

...Be transformed by the renewing of your mind...

Taste and see that the Creator, Healer, Lover…is good.

...And look, just look, how beautiful you really are. You take my breath right out of my lungs, and I’m speechless at the wonder of you.

Karen,

Thank you so much for writing this. I could truly relate to it. I even took the time to exhale. (smile)

God bless

Thankyou, that means a lot (both your comments). I think it was something of a prayer, it certainly was a very real experience as I wrote it! You guys get to sit in on a private dialogue between me and God! Thanks for the encouragement.

Now you stand tall in His presence in the knowledge that He loves you. You are not rejected. God bless.

Karen, It is such a "God Thing" that I came across this prayer for a little girl's broken spirit, a spirit broken so long ago and never fully healed. Thanks!!!
