Things to Remember When I’m Afraid

By |June 9th, 2014|

Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne

But the thing I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King

There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring

Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst

So why […]

Fearless

By |May 27th, 2013|

I think I could be an amazing woman

And do amazing things

I’ve been thinking

What if I was fearless

What adventure could that bring

 

Could I jump out of a plane?

Or go swimming with the sharks

Could I climb a mountain?

Go dancing after dark

 

Could I learn the salsa,

Meringue, mambo, flamenco

Could I run a marathon, go parasailing

Or taste escargot?

Nah!

 

Could I fly […]

I Am Courage

By |April 12th, 2013|

I am courage

because I am afraid

but despite my fear

I persevere

 

I am courage

because I dream

but despite my doubts

I try them out

 

I am courage

because I stand

despite my trembling legs

and shaky hands

 

I am courage

because I move forward

despite my temptation

to be a coward

 

I am courage

because I step up and step out

despite the fear inside me sprout

 

I am courage

because I […]

Glimpse

By |January 9th, 2012|

If this is what I can accomplish

with the strength and courage I lack

I wonder the things I could do,

if I didn’t let fear hold me back

 

What if I no longer fed my fears and doubts?

Fed my faith instead

How much further would I be ahead

 

What dances I’d dance

What songs I’d sing

What poems I’d write

If I freed […]

Monsters

By |January 6th, 2012|

I can never quite comprehend

How easy it comes to you

Evil monsters, scary monsters

How do you do the things you do?

As though life has no value

 

You take, you steal, you kill

Destruction of all that is good and beautiful is your will

 

You lie, you cheat, you burn

You take what you didn’t earn

 

It makes me cry

When people die

By […]

Yes

By |January 3rd, 2012|

If you ask me if I’d rather someone else do it

I’d say yes

If you ask me if I want to chicken out

I’d say yes

If you ask me if I want to runaway

I’d say yes

If you ask me if I’m scared out of my wits

I’d say yes

If you ask me if I want to rise above […]

Goliath

By |January 3rd, 2012|

He stands in front of me

So big and so tall

The giant so mighty

And I so small

 

He’s heavily armed and ready for battle

While I have no steal weapons

I just look after the cattle

 

How can I defeat this mighty warrior?

I do not have any steal armor

What I do have however

is my Holy Savior

 

I have the armor of […]

Anxiety Knocks

By |January 3rd, 2012|

There was a time you use to be a regular part of me

Wherever I’d go, it’s you I’d see

I never felt safe with you around

You turned my whole world upside down

 

I’d pray everyday and ask God to send

You away from me, you’re not my friend

Still there you were, always taunting me

I still held on to […]

Brave

By |January 2nd, 2012|

Dear Lord

 

I’m so nervous I want to run and hide in a cave

Please help me

Please help me

Help me to be brave

 

I know if I stand up and raise my voice

I can help save

 

But dear Lord

I need you to help me be brave

This is not the way a Woman of God should behave

 

Help me Lord to […]
