Someone Who Knows

Ever known someone who thought they were an unwanted soul?

To be loved and cherished was their ultimate goal?

What they only became was deflected, dejected and rejected.

When deep down inside they yearned to feel protected.

And although they put on a sour, “I don’t care” face…

Using harmful words to put people in their “place”…

Somewhere in the regions of their hearts,

was this longing desire to be a part…

Of your world, of your life.

But their words always came out causing strife.

Dear rejected, dejected soul, we can’t read your signals that you’re throwing our way.

What your heart wants and what your words say, one another they betray.

But there is Someone who knows your heart and sees your your true mind.

He says, “You’re not unwanted by me. Leave that negativity behind.”

“No longer do the waves of your mind have to be tossed to and fro.”

“For I will give you peace and I will give you rest and so you can grow.”

I'm a stay at home wife and mother of 3. My oldest is 23 who lives at home because she is a delight and is autistic. My other 2 are in elementary school. They are all 3 girls. Raising an autistic daughter isn't the same as raising ones without. So it's like starting anew with some things. I will partly write about this. I have overcome many addictions with the only Savior Jesus for 8yrs. I will also write partly on addiction and how I see it and overcame it. I believe you will find my musings encouraging, helpful and sometimes a bit funny since I tend to be someone who holds nothing back. The purpose of my blog at first was to use it as an outlet, a way to get things out of mind and onto paper. But it has turned into a place I can go to encourage others with a short story, poem or to simply talk and try to relate. I just started blogging a month ago (April 2018) I wish I would've done it sooner! I promise to never try to sell you anything but Jesus' love. Be patient as this site may take on a few changes as I try to find my place in it and where I want it to go. I have many ideas swirling...stick around! Thanks for reading.

  1. This part: “But their words always came out causing strife. Dear rejected, dejected soul, we can’t read your signals that you’re throwing our way. What your heart wants and what your words say, one another they betray.”
    It is just what happens.
    When I was a teacher, I had in mind to write a book: “I Have This Kid.” So many kids raising ruckus in the classroom. So many kids boiling, roiling inside, like a volcano ready to bust. So many home lives I knew nothing about. But I knew there were reasons. Things these kids just didn’t know how to control or deal with. So many hurts.

  2. That was me. My entire teenage years. Not a great place to be…but God! I thank God every day for chasing after me with longing embrace. No better place to be than accepted in His arms.
    This is a beautiful piece, as usual, Amy.
