Broken Rhythm

I did not know I would see this day come.
Seven years ago my life was very different.
Dark, pain filled, broken.
But how the Lord has compassion on the brokenhearted.

His heart is turned toward my outcries.
I had turned away from God and pursued my own heart.
I did not know His heart made my heart beat truer.
His heart brought mine into proper rhythm.

As years have passed our rhythm has reunited.
Bringing hope, peace, and life.
It has been a process of surrender.
I saw the truth, He knows me, He knows the real me.

Piecing the pieces of a shattered heart appears impossible.
My Savior is willing to put his hand to the task.
He has picked up each piece up with tenderness and care.
placing each one into it's proper place.

Growing pains filled as the pieces fit together to beat anew.
There were misplaced beats as my heart searched for rhythm again.
       Thump,
            Thump --
                                           Thump.

He never gave up on me.
He knew my heart would aline back into rhythm with his.
A heart and love which has more strength than the one before it.
A life redeemed.

A Change of Step

"We can make our plans,
    but the Lord determines our steps."
                                        Proverbs 16:9
Tomorrow is filled with many things, many of which I cannot begin to imagine. I give my days to the one who made them, only He is worthy to carry them. I have been blessed with many years to live life. Each day has been a gift. Over the years I have been alive I have seen many remarkable things happen and have grown from every one of them. We are given a set number of days here on this earth; use them wisely. Share love with those around you. Learn what you can and do what you can to make this world a better place.
You have a voice, speak truth.
You have hands, use them to aid someone in need.
You have a smile, share it freely to bring light and hope to another's day.
You make a difference!
