I wait patiently on the Lord, who is always good to me. He knows the hairs on my head, He knows when I come in and when I go out, I can never be out of His watchful protection. He guards me, I am surrounded. Angels watch my step and I will not stumble or... Continue Reading →
He has an outstretched canopy of comfort, He holds me closer than I dare to imagine. I am co-heir with the one who defeated the grave, with the one who ran into hell to save. I am in the royal family as His blood atones for me. I am righteous because He died and rose... Continue Reading →
My mind paces, my body races, I feel agitated through to my bones, but God embraces, and simply says, "hold on here, your faith will lift you out". My faith lifts me out of the mud and mire, lifts me out of the shackles holding on to my feet. He sets me on solid ground,... Continue Reading →
this is one of my favourite poems that I have written and I feel it is appropriate for what I am going through now. Being pressed on all sides – I will come through this time, I will be further refined.
Dust off the old, drink the new wine. Stretch out your tent pegs, you are cultivated and refined.
Refined in the fire, the blaze of glory; the kiln turns the clay into the everlasting story.
It comes out shining, glazed and pure. It comes out so much better than ever before.
The fire purges your heart inside out. It’s OK to be pressed so that new rivers can flow, no drought.

Last night my legs were ablaze, tossing and turning, my bed a maze. Not one wink for hours on hours, then suddenly bam! The power of the night hits with bad dreams and hallucinations on hand. I get through my midnight fight - then comes the bursting daylight, but I feel blue to my soul.... Continue Reading →
Churned up and tense, my hands shake like I touched an electric fence. My head fobs with 'what if's?' and "if only's". My mind a whirl of confusion and melancholy. I can't see beyond being here, sectioned and imprisoned, my fears entrench this fatality deep inside, I am lost here, forever closed in by wire. But... Continue Reading →
Tied up and twisted, in chains and turmoil. "My life not my own" echoes through the corridors and walls. I am trapped and imprisoned, persecuted for the state of my mind. Punishment is given at each sign of weakness, each set back displayed causes a regressive rewind. Restrictions and limitations, stepping forward and leaping back.... Continue Reading →
Breathe, even when your own breath strangles you and the cords of destruction trap your trachea, keep breathing. Walk, even when you feel like you are walking through mud and mire, treading on glass, keep walking. Laugh, even when the tears are falling and your heart is heavy, remember your joy. Dance, even when you... Continue Reading →
Isaiah 58:1 "Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet..." Rise up from the ashes, speak out in the storm! Though your voice may quiver and tremble, declare the truth, be bold and humble. Turn over the evil lies, bring whats in the dark to the light. Shine transparency and... Continue Reading →
