To Heal Bad Hearts | Short Poem No. 66

Is there someone that can heal bad hearts?

Do not forget, you have a new name.
The new name that’s given to you: “Rebirth.”
Just how many years was your heart out laid,
now to be most happy in all the earth?

Fiercly hard times brought you internal dis-chord.
Your soul was ripped open with no one to care.
Even the worst saw your grief and was bored.
For your tears were common; it was unfair.

But there’s a God who loves making new starts,
with grace and with mercy to heal bad hearts.

Soul is Strong | Poetry Remix No. 8

“My soul is strong, and stronger every day. Lay it down and pick it up on the way.”

My heart is raw, my hands are wide open;

Yes, I’m broken, but I’m willing to learn.

Take all of you, not me, and pour it in

deep in my soul and let the fires burn.

My soul is raw, so my mouth remains closed.

The less of me, then the more I am free;

Free to receive all from the One that knows;

knows me by my name and calls me to be.

My body is raw and always fading.

And I know that it won’t last forever.

One day, a new one will be given me

from my Redeemer and one life Giver.

My soul is strong, and stronger every day.

Lay it down and pick it up on the way.

Friends, this is a very special post to me because it comes deep from my soul. I know I haven’t been posting often lately. But I hope everyone is my community is still around to read!

I am just a little flower – Blue Feet, Bamboo Flute

I am just a little flower The garland maker my Lord He holds me in His hands And I wonder “Where will He put me?” “Next to the big marigolds? Or with my little friends, jasmines? …

Friends,

This is a great post that I wanted to share. Even though KrishnaPriya and I are from quite different religions and parts of the world, it is amazing to me how we can both come to some of the same conclusions about God. The beginning of all is to find completeness in His love.
