A Restored Life

She takes me on a journey 

to places in Papa that I 

have never been

She has been where I 

never tread

I hang on every word that 

flows from her lips

It is like ointment poured forth over my bruises and pain

Going deep, reaching my soul

Forcing me to take a look 

at my life

I don’t know if it’s the glow 

on her face

Or the peace that emanate from her being

Or the wisdom that flows 

from her lips

If I could only dwell in the shadows, which she calls home

Oh, how I long for life changing encounters with Him!

There’s no sign of the pain 

of her past

The cobwebs that used to 

keep her trapped

Had to let her go

For she dwells in the heart 

of the Father

Releasing the fragrance of heaven in the earth 

Her life a testimony of the power 

of the cross

She is a breathtaking picture 

of a restored life

Her face glows as if it was 

set alight by Papa himself

She gently moves through 

the crowd, ready to embrace the broken and lost

Leaving prints of Papa’s love wherever she treads

She can relate to others pain

She visited many painful paths

In her darkest hours, she was obedient to His call

When Papa summoned her to 

go deeper with Him

She joyfully abandoned everything

To go on a life changing journey with Him

He reached for her when 

no one would

Setting alight her dying embers

With one glance in her direction

She was forever changed

She couldn’t make pain her habitation

She used it to catapult her 

into His dreams for her

Oh, she is head over heels in 

love with Her Father

A tried and empty vessel

She died many deaths

She burns with His love

She drips with His oils

Her laid down life, her 

offering to her King

People are drawn to His 

divine love in her

That’s all she has, no silver 

or gold

She laid it all down, for what she has gained

Can never be compared to earthly wealth

Like Paul says “I have suffered the loss of all things and count them 

as rubbish, in order that I may 

gain Christ”

She now can relate, because she is dead to this world!

She now knows that she’s 

only a piece in His big puzzle

And that there are still many daughters that need to encounter His deep love for them!
