Freedom From Fear

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.

But Jesus…

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.
