Shine On

monarch-butterfly-orange-flower

Shrouded in darkness, unable to find the light

Told by many that she’d never amount to much

So for years, she remained mostly out of sight

Too afraid of being seen, of failing, and such

 

Somewhere in the dark, someone found her

He showed her that there is joy within the sun

That life is not meant to be lived in a hazy blur

But instead is to be enjoyed, to actually have fun

 

More so, He taught her about a forever love

That there’s one who would always be there, no matter how dark it became

And that there’s beauty and worth within her, recognized from up above

A worth that would burn brighter than the most fiery flame

 

He called her to be seen and heard

If she’d but open her heart and trust

She found truth within His word

Letting go so she could move forward was a must

 

Shine on, for you have a great future ahead

No longer shall you live a life void of light

A life within the sun, that’s what He said

Spread your beautiful wings and take flight

Our Greatest Foe – Our Own Minds

tumblr_m4e1llklRz1r5rcwxo1_500

There are endless enemies among us, but there is often no greater foe than the demons that live within us.

Every single day is a battle against ourselves, fighting the evil that’s within us all. But make no mistake, even though sometimes we lose, it’s always worth the fight.

There’s much good within us too and to see it in play is an amazing thing. So I encourage each of you that feels like they’re struggling today to fight, fight to keep those inner demons at bay and let your good shine through. ♡♡♡

My Quest For A Fairytale Life

I spent years chasing my fairytale

And dreaming of a love built to last

Hoping my prince would sweep me off my feet

Together then we would find our happily ever after

 

After awhile it seemed that love would forever elude me

Each relationship I entered into failed miserably

And by the end of each one, I felt more and more lost

Stuck in a maze of loneliness, doubt, and failure

 

I prayed that God would send my prince to me

That he would help guide me out of the darkness

I imagined him fighting through the maze to find me

He would face many foes and defeat each one

 

How was I to know that I was the greatest challenge of all?

As much as I desired to love and be loved in return

I held it and any real chance of stability at arms length

Fearing what would happen if I ever let them get too close

 

As the days turned into years, my depression grew

And the anger at the world and at myself festered within me

Lashing out, just so tired of an imperfect world and life

Hating who I was, not knowing how to overcome the demons within

 

God slowly began to show me a path that would lead me out

That would guide me towards the life I desired

Though it would not be an easy path to take

But if I was brave enough, I would see it would all be worth it

 

After losing countless friends due to the demons within me

And many failed relationships, I began to waken from my nightmare

As I began to see the light up ahead and find the courage to follow it

Things began to change all around and within

 

Some things lost were never to be recovered

And while it broke my heart to realize this

I saw that He was bringing me to new and better things

As I bid goodbye to the past, a sense of hope was kindled in me

 

Some friendships were saved and new life was found within them

Relationships with family members were strengthened

The roadblocks between my son and I began to crumble

And now we’re closer than ever, now that my head is on straight

 

As the hope within me blossomed, the clouds above me thinned

I began to make my way through the dark maze

Holding onto the rays of light that were trying to guide me through

And after many years, I finally found my way out

 

At the exit, there he was, waiting for me

Knowing I could do it without a knight to come to the rescue

As I turned to look back at the maze, I realized something

In one sense, I did it on my own and yet, I was also never alone

 

I had to find the courage and will within me to fight the demons

But that courage came from God

And when I thought I was walking alone

He was there beside me, guiding me every step of the way

 

And the support of many that loved me was within me

Cheering me on, I just didn’t see them

My eyes were too focused on the difficulties to really see

But even in my darkest times, I was never alone

 

Now here I stand, still taking things one day at a time

I still have some rough days

But they’re not like before

This time, I know I will make it through them all

 

As it turned out, my fairytale wasn’t something I needed to chase

It needed to find me, when the time was right

When I was truly ready for it

When it was meant to be

 

My prince doesn’t ride upon a magnificent steed

And nor does he battle to save my life

Though he does wage wars with the demons inside my head

But together we fight them and we always win

 

When I feel like I will fall apart, he is there to help me

He balances me out, stabilizes me

But he does not control me

He lets me know that I can do whatever I set my mind to

 

I found within him not only my partner, but also my best friend

And I in turn, do all that I can to help him

As he walks with me, I walk with him each day of our lives

Helping one another through the bad times & together celebrating the good ones

 

We also remember to nourish our friendships

Not only enjoy our time together

But also our time apart

Enjoying all that makes us who we are

 

We are blessed, both as a couple and as individuals

We have family that loves us

Friends that adores us

Jobs, a home, pets to raise, and one another to come home to

 

Life will never be perfect

Not even in fairytales

But as I realized that

It was then I saw just how beautiful it is

I Want To Say Thank You

Image

Some stresses in my life feel difficult to defeat

But know that head on my problems I will meet

I will stumble, fall, & sometimes feel pretty low

But in the end, I will rise each time & be ready to go

 

Head held high, facing the challenges ahead

The struggles I face & the demons within will not see me dead

God, be my constant & my strength every single day

With You beside me, I know I will always find my way

 

Even during my darkest days, I don’t lose sight

Of all the hope & joy in my life that shines a great light

I don’t thank You nearly enough for all that I have, for all that You give

So right now, I would like to say thank You for the life You’ve given me to live

You Set Me Free

Image

For years, I wandered through the ashes of my past

Dwelling on pain, guilt, & heartaches that I thought would forever last

“Will I ever be able to move on, from my yesterdays be set free?”

I cried out to anyone who was willing to hear me

 

Scattered memories lingered deep within my mind

I just couldn’t seem to find a way to leave them behind

There too was laughter, light, & love among the remains

But the darkest memories sang the loudest of refrains

 

As much as I yearned for peace, for the ability to again trust

I was afraid of getting hurt and thought I’d forever deal with a world so unjust

At arms length, I thought it best to hold any promises of hope & love

Though silently, I prayed for things to change, hoping You’d hear me from above

 

Over the years, doubt, hurt, guilt, & fear have been losing their hold

It’s in Him that I have found the ability to be courageous & bold

To tell the evil that both surrounds and lives within me to get out

I do still falter now & then, but most days I am able to push away the fear & doubt

 

I look around me now & see a future so very bright

You have shown me the way by shining Your great light

I am not alone, for You are always with me

And now I want all to know that from my past, You’ve set me free

My sentiment for today, for my love….

Image

I don’t want the world in my pocket. I don’t yearn to climb the highest mountain or slide down a majestic rainbow. I don’t want you to give me the sun, the stars, or the moon….though being with you does make my eyes light up like the night’s sky. What I want, I already have and that’s your love. ❤

In All I do, I Seek You

Closing my eyes, I seek Your beautiful face

Let all hate within me vanish without a trace

Jeremiah 29:11 tells me You have a plan for me

So please light the way so that I might see

 

Oh God who reigns on most high

I lift my hands up to the sky

You’ve been here for me from day one

I know through You, my battle with evil will be won

 

Your word gives me comfort and reminds me of the truth

I yearn for my faith in You to be like that of my youth

Let me be a beacon, reflecting Your light and love

So that in all I say and do, all may see You up above
