Silence speaks more than my words

Would you listen if you really heard

Depths of their meaning truth absurd?

If only knew the change that occurred

Perceive, believe, receive, achieve together

Faith, hope, and love do remain forever

Grace, mercy, and compassion help in life’s endeavor

Turn away again and again to only falter

Reasons why to stay hidden rather not holler

Give up, pass it by, go it alone, on the fence totter

Unstable like severity of weather listen close… don’t scatter

Reaching out to those broken and scar tattered

And those storm tossed and raging waves battered

Letting you know you truly matter

There’s a Savior who’ll accept you as you are and give you Living Water

There’s a Heavenly Father to adopt a son or daughter

You’ll be chosen and accepted as HIS precious treasure

To be known by name forgiven and loved beyond all measure…

HE takes you the clay in HIS hands as the Potter

Would mold your life into something beautiful… better…

Nothing in this life from HIS grasp will ever sever… Never…

You’ll make it to where you need to be beyond the stressful pressure…

There’s more to life remember, so listen to respond for a new life to enter…

Depression locked in night

Faith awakes absent sight

Hope engaging the fright

Love emerging when contrite

Dreams unlock with Light

HIS Spirit within ignite

Walk not by might

Mind links to Heaven’s height

Heart opens to new life

Soul HE restores aright

Spirit free saves from plight

Body beats to join the fight

Compassion helps others be bright

Rescue casualties caught in rewind

For one lost sheep leave ninety nine

Once broken chains no longer tight

Share story left behind

Forward journey go remind

Inward peace HE gives to find

I reminisce…

Fight back;  persistence -found to be free

Temptations attack;  resistance -found purity

No slack;  repentance -found mercy

Take flak;  admittance -found family

Have a knack;  HIS assistance -found empathy

Back on track;  insistence -found grace aplenty

Heavy load unpack;  outdistance -found eternity

No more lack;  coexistence -found love fully

 

If it weren’t for the LORD to reminisce…

I would have torn apart;  ripped in pieces -so haunter makes remiss unsound into self-pity

What would be left if my soul deceases -no longer exist sound silenced empty

You rescued me in perfect love so fear ceases -daunter desist sound heart accept privily

You lighten burdens as Your peace increases -stronger to resist sound mind kept reassuringly

You’re the Giver of new life leases -song astir to persist sound spirit leapt freely

From our chains and our prisons You pardon releases -from wrongs turn away with grace assist sound joyfully adept with purpose and vision equipped fittingly

You delivered me from my sin and shame

You delivered me from my guilts horrid stain

You delivered me from Satan’s stalking my soul to claim

You delivered me from a dungeon locked in chains

You delivered me from outer darkness and blackness void inside left alone and lame

You delivered me from schizophrenia’s refrain

You delivered me from loss when others turned away

You delivered me from loneliness setting me in a family in Your time and way

You delivered me from homelessness where I’d suffer and never gain

You delivered me from an early grave

You delivered me from those whose intentions would be to maim

You delivered me from fear to make me brave

You delivered me my soul to save

You delivered me for new life now to crave

You delivered me as I give You thanks, about You will always rave, giving You all the glory, honor, and praise

You delivered me with the Life You gave

You delivered me to no longer go so far off when I used to stray

You delivered me to stand in the gap and pray

You delivered me to walk with You day by day

You delivered me with a willingness to now obey

You delivered me that for You and with You always stay

You delivered me in love from heights, depths, widths, breadths to great lengths no one would understand how far You came and the efforts You made that are beyond what words can ever say

If I were the rain

I’d wash away the pain

I’d refill your cup with Living Water to sustain

I’d take on your sadness to add to mine to drain away from your soul for new growth to gain and for happiness to maintain until full joy can remain

 

If I were the snow

I’d remind you of forgiveness, whiter inside, to know

I’d cover over your focused on faults and fears so you would continue to grow

I’d melt away the negative thoughts that onward into a hope and a future you’d go

 

If I were the sky

I’d have the clouds say I love you as they pass by

I’d be your hope in endless blue so you’d never have to cry

I’d hold your desires in full view, not to wonder why they don’t come true, until you rise above to grasp them from on high

 

If I were a mountain tall

I’d be the steps to reach the sky for your desires to be more easily and quickly reached, for you not to think impossible, moving gradually upward so you wouldn’t fall

I’d send from above, into your valley whenever you’re stuck, to look again above with a life giving echoing call

I’d stand strong and secure as a place you can always return for comfort never left in suicidal disarray to nervously and hesitantly stall

 

If I were the sun

I’d send my light to the deepest part of your spirit inside to feel acceptance never to shun

I’d light the path to make clear your purpose and vision for which to run

I’d supply the warmth of faith to fill you inside to keep going until you’ve won the race and hear well done

 

If I were the moon

I’d reflect a brighter smile all the while so you knew you brought me joy in the day before lying down in safety’s sleeping soon

I’d reflect the flip side angry face that scares away the evil no longer to be traced, to slow down one’s pace, to not feel you have to act in haste or that life’s a waste, never to feel any doom

I’d reflect comforting soft light preparing you for the next day with grace’s refueling boon

 

If I were the stars

I’d sparkle in such a way to connect the dots making sense of who you are

I’d show you’re nearer to God and others never alone or subpar; guiding your eyes to look above so you’re no longer hiding or straying away into darkness so far away into what the world mars

I’d remind you always of knowing your place in the universe despite the scars

 

If I were the ocean

I’d send into your heart mercy and compassion foregoing the commotion

I’d send wave after wave of healing for your soul to restore in never ending motion

I’d send you treasures from deep within onto your shoreline just because you’re loved and valuable to remind you of the eternal notion

 

If I were a river

I’d flow into your heart peace that will rescue and from all fears deliver

I’d flow inside your heart as the wondrous dream come true giver

I’d flow alongside your life so you’d never feel alone or quiver

 

If I were a lake

I’d surround you with peace whenever you needed a break

I’d let you let go of the stress like rocks thrown and skipped across what you can no longer take

I’d be there to see your reflection to bounce back hope come awake beyond the heartache

 

If I were me

I’d write in such a way you’d see into love’s mystery

I’d say the right words that made a positive difference in you for eternity

I’d be there for you encouraging and supporting you no matter your history

 

If you believed

you’d get more than you can think, ask, or imagine to receive

you’d live life letting go of suicidal ideation for the greater miracle you still will be

you’d no longer give in to the lies that deceive; living in and with a love greater than you can now conceive

 

If only you…

If only…

If…

If

If is not the end…

What if it’s a new beginning…

I’d cheer you on…

You’d…

Whispers atop the waters won’t stop coming to my ears

Carried across waves surging urging prayer, toss into strumming my heart to hear

Cries riding the four winds out of hiding are deafening, not lessening

Whys collides with Your promises and realities confide to intercede with their pleas for Your help and hope to receive through what’s pressing

Shouts echo nights skies of my fellow brothers and sisters bellows deep within to high above to me below

Stars silence twinkling sounds their tears revealing darknesses abuses that surround life alive dwindling, remembering those imprisoned, uplift to FATHER GOD for love’s rekindling to know and grow freed when let go from those evil who harm HE will overthrow

What’s your mental illness?

Find HIM in the stillness

Draw near and HE draws near to bless

with willingness…

if you ask… -to give relief from grief and break chains that have you bound from outward stress

if you seek… -to find refreshing from fears threshing all around distress

if you knock… -to open the door to restore from agitations that drown and inward press

HE will soon provide your soul’s needed rest

To persevere in prayer for healing from anxieties that oppress

To make it up and out, through to the other side of darkness

To find hope and purpose arise from under life’s duress

Within HIS reach is peace of a sound mind to once again possess

Within HIS reach is peace of a pure heart to once again find more love rather than less and less

Within HIS reach is peace of a restored soul to once again enter into the light of the living acquiesce

Within HIS reach is a peace of a free spirit to once again soar from the nest awaiting Heaven’s address

So delight yourself in the LORD holding onto HIS rope of 3 chord strand not easily broken to stay out of that prison that arrests

For more of HIM move toward with trusting openness

HE will give the desires of your heart as a reward in being HIS invited guest becoming a part of HIS family into relational oneness with adoption’s kindness

You’re more than a conqueror in Christ whose blood for you outpoured for all of who you are with all your mess, a valuable treasure, HE did purchase

You’re worth not giving up on so wait on the LORD and implore for HIS help in your depression, press on…  press on…  no longer suppress what you want and need to express and confess;  all of you HE accepts

For HIM to renew strength on HIS eagle’s wings to soar above the darkness to bring HIS Light and Love to those below with HIS Presence offering that same forgiveness, acceptance, and healing’s essence

Hear HIS mighty roar resonance remembering HE fights your battles in the war uplifting you out of death’s sentence
