Ever had a reckoning? A dawning if you will.
Where there used be hatred, now a peace sits still?
Ever carried a weight for so long it became a part of you?
That when it quietly slipped away, you woke and just knew.
The pain, the hurt, the righteous anger gone just like that
Looking in their place all you saw was peace as it sat…
Upon your heart, upon your mind, upon the past
Ever forgave and just knew this time it would last?
Finally it’s gone never to return
Now love is the only thing in Your heart that will burn
As God did his final healing work, He wiped it all clean
Where angery ashes used to smolder now lush grass grows green
Friends: A long time bitterness just up and left me. I can’t tell you which day it left but I can tell you the day I noticed it was gone. Weird. Something I’ve carried for so long. That had front seat for the majority of my life. Just poof is gone.
Something I prayed for a very long time. To be free of the pain caused by my mother. It’s gone. And although I know they all say that you have be the one to do the work .I believe the God is the One who ultimately lifts the burden off you. When you’re ready. I guess at 45 years old…I was finally ready.
