Striped away,

Lost I feel,

Wander all day,

Life stands still.


Looking back,

Dead inside,

Cricks and cracks,

Broken and dried.


Lord help me,

Looking ahead,

His hope I see,

The past is dead.


Do not fear,

He spoke to me,

Be of good cheer,

Soon you will see.


A sense of hope,

That I felt,

Able to cope,

In His mercy I dwelt.



Sometimes you must let go of things in life that are no longer necessary and hold on to the One that can heal and save you. God is good all the time and the times of pruning are only a time of renewal and transformation that is needed in order to grow and excel for the Lord. God bless.
