Overwhelmed and Overtaken

I sat there overwhelmed with fear
Badgering and bickering was all I could hear.
Silence pursued me to where
I was overtaken
By the oil of your presence flowing over me
That very oil was setting me free
Being poured as from a pitcher
In a steady stream
Flowing fast and furious
Like it would never end
I found peace in the flow
How, I did not know
Overwhelmed and overtaken
To a place I’ve never known.

Is It Possible

Is it possible to love without limits

Is it possible to forgive no matter who’s at fault

Can love be allowed to flood your very being

While joy is your strength as love overflows

Let down all defense and open your heart

Let unconditional love do its part

Don’t lose sight of me

I’m here right where I’ll always be

So you can reach out and touch me,

Caress and hold me

Let the comfort flow that we each enjoy

Love me like you mean it

Don’t treat me like your toy.

Something you can pull out today

And when you’re tired of me you put me away

If that’s what you want to do

I’ll turn and walk away from you.

I Release You

I wrote this one day when I was fed up with being held captive by something that had no right or authority over me-fear. I declared that day I will no longer be held in bondage and I was breaking free to be who I was born to be. Today I face any fear that tries to rear its ugly head. I overcome it.

You’ve been with me a long time

Right by my side

Everywhere I go

You cling to me like there’s no tomorrow.

Today I release you

Time to part company

You’re no long my crutch

I will not receive the lies you’ve been feeding me

No longer do I need you to be a part of me

I release you.

Recognize there’s something new about me

I found out today that I could be set free

From the tricks and lies you’ve been handing me

That had me thinking I couldn’t be

All that was prophesied to me

I release you.

My eyes fell upon the Word

That went straight to my heart

It did major surgery

And ripped us apart

It set me free

To be who I’m suppose to be

Today I release you

You have to go

Leave my presence

Don’t come back no more

I will not take you back I’m staying on track

To be who I’m suppose to be

I release you.

Yesterday

Yesterday is in the past

What happened then is gone forever

Nothing can be done

No matter how clever

That can bring it back

To clean up the track

Of mess that was made

The wrong words said

That shouldn’t have been heard

Things that shouldn’t have been seen

Yesterday is gone

Today is here

Watch carefully

What is said and done

So when tomorrow comes

And today is gone

There won’t be a concern

About what went wrong
