Something Royal

That day you went looking for what you needed

All thoughts of reason had faded, receded

You fled the register, hands full of cash

Your mind lying to you that what you did was rash


Only one way, only one way you saw

To make your gut’s teeth stop their relentless gnaw

The you you knew long time faded from the mirror

I wonder could you see Jesus standing by, always near?


Behind barbed wired walls you now abide

Caged feeling and regret by your side

No light in the darkness in a place like that

Cruelty of others ready to knock you down flat


How we all wish it hadn’t come to this

Say goodbye to freedom with a kiss

But what if…what if there is something new?

Around the bend, down the road a mile or two


Bigger than your plans or hopes could dream

Something royal; a calling flowing in your bloodstream

Your Father, your King awaits!

Watch Him as He draws His plans, creates


A course He’s plotted out for you in mind

One thing He asks is to leave the past behind

Give Him your will, pass the test

And I guarantee your God will do the rest

  1. Oh, Amen, and Amen! You know I identify, not with all the specifics, but generally, I do. Definitely what the Lord did in my life after my huge failure, is much bigger than I would ever have imagined. So, I totally get that! And, yes, for anyone who is struggling with sin, God has already made the way out for you. You just have to humbly come to him, repent of your sin, and turn to follow him in obedience. Let him help you to say “NO!” to the flesh and “YES!” to God! And, he will do amazing things in your life way beyond what you could have ever dreamed of. Thank you, Amy!! This was beautiful! Beautiful!!

  2. When I saw the title, I thought you had written something about the most trending topic in our parts (shout out to Brother H and Sister M) 😀 😀 😀

    But this is deep deep, Amy. I don’t know what is happening, but everything I’m reading is aligning with the inspiration I first got when I got the instruction to write a book 10 years ago. Have you heard this song by Nichole Nordeman “Finally Free”?

    Have I said happy new year to you?
