A New Song


Tugging my foot from your trap; I’d try to break free.

All the while I hear your repeated melody.

The tune you put out, never harmonized with my soul.

My ultimate defeat has always been your final goal.

How did I ever get caught up with you?

On my mind, on my heart, you’d constantly chew…

away, trying your best to whittle me down

to nothing, finding your way to leave me with a frown.

I figure you know this, I figure you’re keen

to the One who fights you, for me, our King!

Bending down, He broke the chains and set me free!

And he gave me a new song, a harmonious melody.

A little advice for you, not that I should care

But surely, surely you are aware.

Didn’t you read the back of the Book and read of your defeat?

Any can be free of your snare, thanks to Him who sits on the Mercy Seat.

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.
