Gripping on so tightly, you didn’t want to let go. What was once so cherished and momentous, has now burdened you so.

The torch you carried so bright in your heart, you fed and fed to keep afire. But to no avail, for lusts of the flesh consumed that desire.

Sin and deceit crept in, riding in the coattails of despair and grief…left you wondering how 20 years could seem so brief.

Now you stand at the precipice of the unknown wondering where to go. Holding tightly to your faith in God, reminding yourself, Amen means ‘make it so.’

With empty hands and a swept out house, you make your daily prayer...”God guide me, strengthen me, I know You’ll always be there.

For it is You I will grip onto so tightly. And it is to You, I will give myself nightly.

As I make my new way in this cruel world. I know I have You and I’ll always be Your girl.”

Amen-So be it

    I love this part: “With empty hands and a swept out house, you make your daily prayer..” Because it’s like Matthew 12.43-45: When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
    God knows just how to keep you His own, by filling that with Him! ❤!
