Between reality and a dream

A wounded warrior

Lost within herself again

No direction

Only murky reflections

Of the days still yet to be.


Waiting for new days 

A child of God

Tries to follow after His ways 

Full of questions

Disillusioned by life’s maze

Pressing onwards

Still plodding through the haze.


She looks upon His face again

His compassion never fails 

And His mercy is new each day

She will rise 

For there is healing in His Wings

She lifts her shield

When arrows bring their sting.

Jesus: The Creator of Heaven and Earth

“No one can see God, but Jesus Christ is exactly like him. He ranks higher than everything that has been made.  Through His power all things were madeβ€”things in heaven and on earth, things seen and unseen, all powers, authorities, lords, and rulers. All things were made through Christ and for Christ.”

Colossians 1:15-16 (NCV)

Reverence and Faith

β€œBut for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.”

Malachi 4:2

“Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

Ephesians 6:16

“I look up to the hills, but where will my help really come from? My help will come from the Lord, the Creator of heaven and earth.”

Psalm 121:1-2 (Easy-to-Read Version)
