Emma Sings - Poetry

Updated on May 11, 2013

Emma sings as she dances in the rain

Twirling with arms stretched wide open for the Lord.

He has sustained her.

She knows He has made her for His own glory.

“Thank you, Lord, for the pain.

Mother hated me.

Daddy abused me.

I ran away at an early age.

Drugs took me away from the pain of my reality.

What a miserable, lonely life I have lived.

There has been too much pain.

But, it was all for Your honor.

You protected me.

You called me out of the filth to be Your own.

You saved me from destruction.

Thank you, Lord, for allowing the hurt and confusion in my life

To show others your good works manifested in me.”

Emma kicks and splashes in the puddles, smiling and laughing.,

Enjoying all that God has created.

He made beauty from the ashes of her life.

Emma continues twirling in the rain,

Praising her Lord.

      Hi, Romeos. Thanks for reading and commenting. God chooses to manifest His good works in people, sometimes through pain.

      I couldn't agree more.Hurt can be a cruel taskmaster,and pain an unwelcome companion,but can be used,it seems,to burn away the inessentials through the furnace of various,testing trials;like the sculptor,chipping away the debris,in order to create that perfect model.The light also seems to shine the brightest in the most darkest places,whether that be in the world,or inside the deepest,furthermost recesses of the soul. :)

      I'm glad to make your acquaintance,lcbenefield,and hope that you have a peaceful weekend.

      Yours Sincerely,

      Romeo's Quill

      Thank you Mhatter, Faith, and Romeos for reading and commenting. One day, we will know why we have endured all that we have. He does exchange beauty for ashes. He replaces the years the ants have eaten. Faith, thanks for voting up and sharing. Mhatter, Thanks for the affirmation. Romeos, glad to make your acquaintance also. His blessings to you all.
