A Hand Reaching Out

What do I have to share? My story…my experience.

Sure…I would have done things differently, knowing now what I didn’t know then.
Can I make something good out of this mess I left behind. The messy black mark on my
timeline of my life? I hope so…if not….what good am I?

I must not keep this wisdom that I now hold dear, too close for none to learn from it.
I need to share at least some element, a crumb, a tiny bite with someone searching for
such a morsel as only I can give.

There is hope, my sister, there is hope my friend.
Just because you are being pushed to the edge does not mean you have to jump.
You can walk along the edge but take in the view and see the life you could have.
Hope is out there…..it is just one clasped hand into yours away.

You just need SOMEONE….someone who really knows you and what you are
going through. You are hoping for a way out.

You need ONE still…small…voice to tell you that you are worth it.
You are precious in His sight. He knew you before you were born.
Take His hand…there is hope in HIM. Who is HE?

Who is this that can take away your sorrow and your pain?
Who is this that can restore you to the innocence of the child you once were?
This is not your own fault, you just lost your way. You didn’t have someone
who cherished you so much to warn you of such things that might come your way.

Forgiveness is hardest when it is our own self we must forgive.
But that…. we must do…. forgive our own selves….because
HE HAS….if you have taken His hand.

Trust….give it to him….your palm and fingers now in his grasp. He already knows your story. He took those things you are ashamed of to the cross.

What God would do that? What God would love you so much he wants to walk with you in life? What God would die a death we all deserve? Only a God with so much love He wants to
spend time with you now and for all eternity. Life does not end here.

So what would happen if you go through with it? That thing you are about to do
…. but for a way of escape….wait.
Listen to the Whisperer that is greater than any outcome you fear.
Listen to the beating of your heart and it wants to keep on beating.
Like a well pump, it loves to work hard for you. A stopped heart can love no one.

Choose life and love every time there is a choice or stay silent at least. Don’t speak, just listen. But listen not to the masses, or the angry or threatening person egging you on to destruction. Be sure it is only you that makes the decisions that will effect your innermost being.

No one can steal your soul. It may be downcast for awhile as you ponder what it is you are
thinking. Take all the time you need.

Your answer will come if you only look up….beyond the stars, beyond humanity itself, beyond yesterday, today or tomorrow. Look to the highest heaven, and take the hand of ONE who has been ever near, and ever dear you whole life long.

“Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

I like to write for the pure enjoyment of writing short excerpts about life in general. I would want my writing to bring inspiration or encouragement to the faint-hearted or those looking for some direction, purpose, or meaning. I am searching daily for what it is God wants me to do and who he wants me to become. It is a growing pain for me. We all have something new we can learn and share with others.
