His Hands Reached Out In Love

His Hands Reached Out In Love

  I wanted to do it my way I was independent people would say,

Submission was not in my plan I couldn’t let anyone have the upper hand.

What if someone made a mistake this was not my intent so I just couldn’t relent.

How could anyone else know what to do it was up to me to run the show and I let everyone know.

Why was it so important to me to be in control because I had been hurt in my soul.

I didn’t want anyone to play me along I just had to be strong.

I wore a mask so no one would see the pain I felt in my heart and that it was tearing me apart.

I wanted so desperately to let go but who could I trust to care for me if vulnerable I choose to be.

Could I risk being me oh how I longed to be set free.

Then Jesus reached out His hands in Love drawing me near seeking to take away my fear.

But I held back I was still afraid what if I sinned and disobeyed.

I had to be perfect for Him I had to make up for my sins.

The battle was strong and I did wrong, I feared He wouldn’t understand but He never let go of my hand.

Jesus showed me that He did care freeing me of my despair, He would help me be strong and in Him I already belonged. 

I didn’t have to earn His Love He knew my pain, He bore my shame.

In humility I bowed my knees and in compassion and Love 

He set me free.

As I sit at Jesus feet all my needs He does meet.

He is my friend and on Him I can depend, I need not fear

 for He is in control.

No one can over step His mark or take away what He has done

for we are now one.

  1. I knew that her faith was strong in Christ and that although it seemed impossible to her right now, He would bring her back to life as well.

      Hi Anna, yes that is a wonderful promise to hold onto when we put to death our evil flesh Nature by the Fruit of the Spirit we are brought back to life in Christ Jesus, we are indeed Born again of God’s seed and the old flesh nature is gone and God’s new Nature has come.

      Thank you for the reminder – Christian Love Anne.

      Hi Ron, very True it speaks of my Journey with The Lord and like most of my poetry it’s my ups and downs and as you witnessed it is not only looking at the past but is Prophetic and which was indeed a surprise to both of us, God anointed it with a sign and wonder or as we call it God’s Ink, which was really amazing, I will share it with everyone when I feel lead to.

      But I believe for me this was the hardest part of my Journey letting go of my control, I was scared I would be hurt again but Jesus reassured me and continues to do so. It does not mean I don’t feel pain or can’t be hurt, Jesus did or I no longer have weaknesses and shortcomings, the early Church experienced them all, nor does it mean I don’t get angry or feel disappointment, but He strengthens me to deal with it in a Godly way and when I’m tempted I just talk to Him and He leads me straight out of danger and empowers me to walk in His Love and Victory.

      Yes we all need rescuing but we need to be honest enough in our heart to admit we do and not just say the words glibly, we are to become as small Children totally vulnerable and Trusting as they are without hypocrisy and denial, to be totally dependent on God and as a Child does to accept without doubting we are Loved and wanted and rejoice in this and the gifts we are given…. Can we do it alone… No only by choosing to do it and then walking in Love by the empowering of The Holy Spirit. Ask and we receive and as a child does we believe we have…if your holding onto it you have got it!

      Christian Love Anne.
