A to Z Blog Challenge T- THROWBACK

Some times in our lives we have things coming at us from all directions. It’s like the things are on a timer and no sooner we get one thing cleared up another issue is up in our face. Welcome to:

THROWBACK

When things in your past

Seem so far away

Then up in your face

There they are one day

What do you have?

A Throwback

When moving along and

All things seem right

Then everything turns

From day to-night

What do you have?

A Throwback

When dreams were shattered

A long time ago

And you forgave the ones you know

Hurt you deeply

Broke your heart

Ripped and tore

Your insides apart

Life’s going great and on the mend

The healing process is over

The horrible treatment  end

Years have passed;

Time gone by

All of a sudden

Much to your surprise

The ugly head of your past did arise

What do you have?

A Throwback

DON’T “QUIT”

If you are on the road of possibilities and things get a little hard. Don’t Quit.

If you can’t see your destination and it seems very far. Don’t Quit.

If you lost all you had and see no way to recoup. Don’t Quit.

If you don’t know what is going to happen today or tomorrow. Don’t Quit.

Quitting isn’t an option.

There is not satisfaction in it.

Keep your eyes on the prize, whatever you see it to be.

Accept the motivation that will keep you going strong.

Till you can jump and shout

And sing a happy song.

JUST DON’T QUIT!

HELD CAPTIVE IN THE DARK, DREARY PLACE—NOW FREE

Today I feel like I have a life and I matter. Most days I just exist, nothing about me counts. Some days I feel I’m an asset but there are times I’m just bumbling through. At the end of the day I’m alone.

I’m in a dark and dreary place where the shroud of darkness covers everything round about. Where is the penetrating light that dispels the deep black darkness? Where are the Angels that grab the edges of the dark covering and snap it to attention and command it to leave? Why is my mouth shut up and the words locked away that will burst me forth from the captivity of this dark and dreary place—the place where I’m taunted by the recorder of my life. All you know how to do is make a mess of things. You can’t do anything right. You’re fat and ugly. You’ll never amount to anything. On and on and on then the big one that stabs me in the heart and takes my breath away—I wish you were never born—I wish you were dead. I wish I was dead! How can I have a present and a future with those nagging, mocking voices I hear? Where can I go; what can I do to be rid of them?

A still small voice is whispering loudly at me. It’s softly but boldly beckoning “come hither and see”. I have a way to set you free. As I fight to make my way back from the deep, dark hole there is light at the end that is a blinding flash of light. The darkness is running with no place to hide. The light has defeated it; a new day’s arrived. The small voice breaks through with declarations and decrees. The negative word curses no longer torment me.

I now hear a symphony of cheers. You’re fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). I know the plan I have for you (Jeremiah 29:11). There’s Angel assistants sent to dispel the darkness so I can see the new day. The glory of the Lord has come to say I love you with an everlasting love.

Have you ever felt you were held captive and alone in a dark dreary place?
