Letting Go Of the Bars

Let Go Of Me ~ part I

I am faithful

In my heart

The mind plays tricks

I do not part


Take your aim

Oh, snake that sees,

I am covered

I am free


Funny how

In my collapse

You think you hit me

As you laugh


Silly snake,

How blind you are

You have only

Seen my scar


I am covered

Sheltered from

Deceptive weapons

Have not won



Hold on Tight

Holding tight He will Hold You
Holding tight He will Hold You | Source

I am stronger ~ Part II

I am stronger

Than you know

I may stumble

But I go


To the one

Refused in thee

When I break

He carries me


He lifts me up

In warm embrace

Through Crashing waves

He keeps me safe


As you splash

Your spray at me

I am covered

You will flee!


So you think

My broken spots

Are unattended

For your rot


Oh, silly snake

How lost you are

He will take

Me from you far


I may wither

I may fall

Do not slither

In my hall


For He dwells there

In my heart

Where He lives

I will not part


I am covered

I am free

No matter what

You throw at me


I may stumble

As I crawl

He lifts me higher

Keeps me tall


So go ahead

And try to crash

Your wimpy waves

Are just a splash


He is greater

Never, far,

He’s my defender

My sandbar



Letting Go

Let Go be free ~ He holds us up, even when we dangle there is JOY in Him!                                                                                  This Poem is about all of us ~ the beautiful girl is my daughter ~ just one of my many blessing
Let Go be free ~ He holds us up, even when we dangle there is JOY in Him! This Poem is about all of us ~ the beautiful girl is my daughter ~ just one of my many blessing

Letting go and being Free ~ Part III

So as you slither

All about

Seeking place

And seeking out


I His child

In the wake

See you as

The weakest fake


By your venom

Feeling proud

Oh, silly snake

He is my shroud


For when He took

The cross for me

He lay there still

For, days of three


Then, as He promised

In the flesh

Returning flawless

I am blessed


And by That cross

I trust in Him

There is no price

I pay for sin


As by my faith

In Him I know

That I am armored

By His glow


And by the bars

This jungle sets

His hand will guide

I won't forget


I hold tight

In my belief

Then trust the falls

Allowed in grief


Shine me bright

For all to see

Oh, silly snake

Let go, I’m free!

I am Set Free by All Sons and Daughters

Are you ready?

Are you ready to let go and let Him hold you up even if you dangle a bit?

Jodah ~

Thank you for your kind words. I do know where I am going , but that silly old snake is so busy, if not directly with us, then with those around us. I pain for even one lost to God's promises. We are so blessed to express His amazing love so freely. We must, and will shine our lights together. Many blessings to you today and always.
