The old me felt the familiar fear.
The breathtaking burden of it.
With a heavy heart I would sit.
I heard the swirling symphony
Of should haves and shame.
Accusations and blame.
I couldn’t change the beginning
And was racing toward the end.
Time flew by and walls closed in.
Jesus relieved me of familiar fear
The bonds broken and me set free.
Who I once was wasn’t who I had to be.
I could acknowledge my wrongs
But not be condemned by them.
I lived knowing I was loved by Him.
No longer looking back. Embracing today.
Allowing Jesus to capture by gaze
As I walk in freedom the rest of my days.
