Warrior Bride 

Our journey of love 

has brought you to this place

Where you are totally abandoned to Me

You went through fire, 

persecution and pain

Stood firm under the onslaughts of the enemy

You took your place in My kingdom

Often standing alone

Taking your place as my warrior bride

The enemy wouldn’t back off

Neither would you

For too long he stole what belong to Me

My armour your strength

The war cry on your lips, 

pulling you through

Dancing your way through 

every onslaught, coming your way

I was your safe place 

in the midst of the storm

There were day’s you wanted to run 

back to what was familiar

I wouldn’t let you

It made you strong

You clung to Me with your last breath

At times so drained, 

but you never let go of My voice

Guiding you

Strengthening you

Cheering you on

At times you felt alone in the fight

My presence felt distant, 

but you persevere

You knew you had to bring a sacrifice 

that would cost you everything

It was worth all the frustration

It was worth all the unanswered questions

My love for you, 

wouldn’t let you give up

You grew stronger day by day

Your eyes focused on the end goal

You couldn’t compromise, 

you knew that it was a kingdom fight

That had to be won

Your obedience to Me was important

You couldn’t trade it for the opinions

of men

Many giants had to fall

You had to fight and give it your all

Generations struggled enough, 

with ghosts of the past

Day by day you were battle ready

You wouldn’t go down 

The cost was too high, 

you fought with all your might

Gained ground in the kingdom

Left your mark in heaven and hell

Our journey of love test your obedience

Our journey of love exposed your heart

Limping and crawling you persevered

I can put you on display

As a vessel of honour

Displaying My heart

It’s time to take your place

My darling daughter 

To gather the spoils

The grain and the oil

To do our wedding dance

I have found you faithful

In running this race

Joy will be your portion

My presence your rest

Forever we will be inseparable

Captivated by a love that could only be found 

in a surrendered life

Totally dead to self, 

but burning bright in Me

Our journey of love was worth all the detours

The highs and the lows

You are my warrior bride

Trained to win each fight with Me by your side

~ Ebigale Wilson

Finding Me 

Surrounded by darkness

No way of escape

Tormented by demons

Holding me hostage

I trample on love, mercy and grace

I wouldn’t allow it to stick to me

Darkness clings like a wet blanket 

I can’t shake it off

It became part of me

Through the choices I made 

And the choices that were made 

On my behalf

My heart ruled by fear and hopelessness

Not a flicker of light in sight

I am sinking deeper and deeper away in despair

Darkness took over every part of me

Dark thoughts

Dark words

Dark face

Far from the life I imagined I’d live

Then all of a sudden there You are

Like a beacon of light in the dark

Stepping into my life

You are dressed in glory

You glisten with love

I try to hide, but I am overtaken

by Your holy presence 

I am numb by the peace 

enveloping You

You take a step closer to me

Till I stand in the shadow of Your

passionate love

Darkness had to flee at the sight

of Your majesty

I am so aware of my brokenness

So aware of every disappointment

So aware of the pain I have caused You

I wait for You to judge me

Instead Your love draws me in

Giving me a glimpse of Your heart for me

An all consuming fire flowing from Your being, 

Burning away all that has clung to me

Replacing darkness with Your light

I am free at last

I am overwhelmed by Your presence

Speechless that You came looking for me

Nothing could stop You from finding me

In Your gaze I found myself

I know that I am deeply loved

My dress once torn and stained 

is now replaced with royal robes

My face once immersed with pain

Now glistens with Your love

My whole being is lavished with 

Your kindness and grace

I am free to be Your bride

I am redeemed

I am deeply loved

Nothing could stop You from finding me

~ Ebigale Wilson 

Deep Love 

You saw me

When no one did

You searched for me

When I was lost

You wooed me in

When I wasn’t even aware of You

What God is this that would follow us to the ends of the earth?

What God is this that never gives 

up on us?

What God is this that fights for us when we don’t even know?

His love is relentless

It follows us into the darkest 

of places

It follows us through the valley 

of death

It follows us till we have reached 

the end

Finds it way through every crack 

in our heart

Found its way to my dark soul

See behind the masks I chop 

and change

The picturized smile I portray

He doesn’t give up, even when I reject His love

He doesn’t give up, even when I tell Him to

He pursue me relentless

Shows me that I am worthy

Till I run into His arms of love

His love mixed with my tears of shame and guilt

Cleanse my heart

Uproot my fears

Heal my scars

Erase my shame

Transform my life

Till all I can see is His love 

flowing from the cross to me

A wretch

A sinner

Turned into a son and a daughter

I never knew a love so deep existed

It leaves me breathless

hungry for more

It is deeper then my loudest sin

Higher then my silent shame

Wider then my desperate fears

I am lost in it

Forever one with it

I will never get enough of it!

~ Ebigale Wilson 

The Hidden Bride 


Encounters with Your love 

has brought me to this place

Where I am bare

Stripped of my old self

Turned upside down

I ran into Your love for me

I ran into Your heart for me

I am forever wrecked

I will never be the same

I cannot go back to a life without You

You turned my life around

A new beginning awaits me

Religion was my safe place 

for far too long

I knew about You, 

but I had never known You

I had to see You with my own eyes

Experience Your presence for myself

I could not go on hearsay anymore

Keep myself busy with trivial things any longer

I had to go on this journey of love with You

I was created to experience 

Your divine love for myself

Created to seek You at any cost

I couldn’t stay the same person

After I ran heart first into You

Your love for me

My ego had to go

Pride had to run

Dying in many areas 

was part of my daily process

I missed the point of displaying You 

to a dying world

Sent wrong signals out

Judged other’s

Hurt Your creation,

whom You love so deep

All in the name of religion

Help me to represent You 

in every aspect of my life

Seek Your face at every account

Know Your heart in every matter

I want to be so hidden in You 

that I am not seen, but only You

Take away my pride and arrogance

Till all people can see is 

Your glory covering me

I want to love like You do

Forgive like You do

Show mercy and grace like You

I want others to experience 

Your heart beating through me

It is all about You

You are the Potter

I am the clay

Break me and mold me

Till I represent You

Though we hurt and reject You

Your love for us is fearless

Your heart for us relentless

Our whole being is consumed 

by Your love for us

We cannot be the same after 

we have encountered Your love

You never give up on us

Follow us through 

the darkest of nights

Look for us when we run away

Point us to the cross 

and You take our shame away

Dispels all our fears

Till we are forever hidden in You

~ Ebigale Wilson  

The Hidden Bride 

    The Journey 

One With You 

Take me away

Till it’s just You and I 

I am desperate for more of You

I want to be One with You

It’s the best place to be

To linger with You

Where I am totally abandoned 

to You

You lead the way and I follow suit

We visit unknown realms

You show me my potential

And I agree with You

Discovering my true identity engraving in You

My faith grows deeper as waves crash over me

You smile and I know I am safe 

here with You

Deeper and deeper we go

Till I am in sync with You

I discover myself in You

I am lost in You

My challenges grow dim

With each step I take with You

My past a vague memory  

A future full of adventure with the King of my heart is luring me in

Past the veil we dance and laugh

Past the veil I came to know You

As a God who loves to meet with all 

His sons and daughters

Here we see ourselves through 

your eyes

Here we discover Your unending love for us

A love that gives us wings

A love that heal our hearts

A love that has the ability to leave us 

thirsting for more of You

We cannot but go deeper with You

We are made stronger through Your grace

Every step we take we lock eyes 

with You

We can never go back to what was

When we have experienced and tasted Your heart for us

Higher and higher we go

You nod Your head

Your eye’s filled with pride

I am undone by Your love for me

Why would the King of the universe take note of me?

A mere mortal, when all I could do 

was disappoint Him, time after time

Till I have ran into His deep love 

for me

I can never be the same again

I can never go back to my past again

I have came to know God’s heart for me

I am undone

I am forever wrecked

Nothing of this world can satisfy me again

Now that I have tasted His sweet love 

flowing like waves into my life

I have made Your presence my dwelling place

Your heart my hiding place

You make me brave

You make me tenacious

You make me crave for every facet of Your heart for me.

~ Ebigale Wilson 

A Mother’s Faith

She didn’t have much to give to me growing up

It was her love for her Savior

I inherited from her

No one I know love’s Papa more than she does

I remember her smiling through tears many times

As she would became one, with the bible stories she would share with me

Her face would light up, 

explaining to me a scripture, a teaching, a word from her King

Her God became real to me and my family

As we got a glimpse of what He meant to her

One by one

We came to know this King she adored

Early in the morning she would intercede for us

Prayer was her safe place, next to her King

Together they would fight many enemies unseen

Generational curses were cut off

While favour replaced it

We would get the prize 

While she wore the scars

Of laying it all down and paying the price

Her love for His word took me places, 

that I have never been

Seen through her teary eyes 

I had to believe

In a God that I could not see

but only felt through her deep love for Him

She gave me the greatest gift 

A mom can give her children

To love God with all her strength and to cling to His Word

She transfered His love onto all that she come into contact with

Religion was out by the door

She embraced intimacy with her King

She was enslaved by His passionate love for her

She could not let go

Through her prayers we were brought to our knees

To make the King of her heart

Part of our every move

My fondest memories were watching her worship

She would became one with her King

Oblivious of those around

She would go places I have never discovered

Today my favorite position is to worship and to wait on my King

It will be my greatest reward

If one day my children would look back smiling

Remembering a mom who mirrored God’s grace and heart to them

~ Ebigale Wilson 

Thank you to all the moms, mentors, guardians, aunt’s, friends, who still believe that the greatest gift we can give the next generation is a relationship with their Heavenly Father. 

Thank you for passing the baton of faith, to your own children and the next generation.

Deuteronomy 11:18-19

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds, tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your forehead.

Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Arise My Bride 

Arise and shine My bride

For your light has come

For too long you have hidden yourself

Behind your pain and your shame

Behind your past and your mistakes

Behind your hurt and your shortcomings

Come out from behind the veil

Its time for you to step into My plans for you

Its time for you to step into My heart for you

Its time to run with Me, 

Into the new I have for you

Don’t underestimate yourself

I qualify those I call

I love using the weak and foolish to confound the wise

I will lift you up and by My Spirit 

We will run into the unknown

You will discover what I have planted in you

The gifts, talents, dreams and creativity 

will flow like waves from you

It is time to give what I have given you away

No more delays!!

Men look at the outer appearance, 

But I look at your heart

And I have found you worthy of My love

Worthy of the calling on your life

Lock eyes with Me

Put your hand in My hand

And know that I will lead you 

every step of the way

By My Spirit you will move and speak

By My Spirit you will dance and sing

By My Spirit you will do the impossible

So come this day, trade your pain for healing 

Trade your mourning for joy

Trade your past for a new beginning

I will heal your heart

I will restore to you the years 

that the enemy has stolen from you

You will once again sing and rejoice in Me

When I am done with you, 

you won’t know yourself

I love using the rejected ones, 

the no name brands, 

the ones everyone gave up on, 

because I know that 

they will give Me the glory 

for changing their story

So arise this day My glorious bride and step into everything I have for you

~ Ebigale Wilson 

   

Faith In Action 

Adversity is after you

You locking eyes

You want to run

You have no strength

You are bruised and weak

Too many battles, little strength

You feel like you’re the haunted one

That the enemy is never done

On and on he goes

It would be so much easier to run and hide

So much easier than to leave your mark

Then you hear His still small voice

Don’t give up!

Don’t give in!

You’ve come to far

Gone through too much

Won many battles

Please don’t give up!

Faith rise up within

You lock eyes with your King

You put your war song on 

You dance and worship

You praise and pray

You find the rhythm of His heart

Till you are aware of only Him

He rules your heart

He rules your mind

His voice forever calms your storms

You fight these battles one by one  

You can’t stop now

For if you would, future generations will be haunted with what you didn’t overcome

Your lessons learned will be their wisdom

Your lessons learned will grow their faith

Your lessons learned will catapult them into 

His arms of grace

They would want to know this God

Who carried you through the darkest nights

This God that stood by you when everyone left

They saw how your love for Him grew day by day

How you were mesmerised by His sweet love

They saw you facing battles unknown to many

Saw how His love for you made you brave

They saw how in the midst of pain and struggle

You arose above it, captivated by the gaze of your Beloved

They saw faith in action, day by day

Hephzibah 

I always want to talk to you

I long for you to search for me

I wait here just to see your face

Hoping that you will reach for Me

You are so busy running to and fro

That you don’t see Me 

Standing here

Your mind wrapped up in all your worries

Your focus bound by fear

You run to seek comfort in many things

To numb the pain

To hide your scars

To still the echoes of your past

While I wait for you to see Me 

Here

You’re looking for satisfaction

In different things

For a mere moment you find peace

Then it starts all over again

On and on you go

Playing your part

Changing your masks

Drained and empty at the end of the day

The void still there

The pain still real

The battle still ahead

No sign of hope

You’re on a road leading no where

You know it!!

I know it!!

Turn around and run into My arms

The void in your heart, was created for Me to fill

I will fit and fill perfectly 

And make you whole

There’s healing power in My presence

You will find your joy in worshiping My name

You will find everything you need 

At My feet

I am waiting for you forsaken daughter

It’s time for Me to change your name

You will no longer be called forsaken,

Hephzibah will be your new name

For My delight is in You

You will rule and reign with me

My peace will set you free

And as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride

So shall I rejoice over you as My bride

~ Ebigale Wilson 

My Faithful Bridegroom 

I look at her and wish I were as glamorous 

Everything is in its place

From her head to her toes

She’s dressed beautifully

She is a women with style, 

A taste for the best

Nothing to spare 

She knows how to feed her flesh

Then there is me

Just plain, boring me

I don’t like expensive clothes or shoes

I bathe in the perfumes of His love

A paintbrush doesn’t often touch my face

I just need to mirror His grace

I love on the poor and the hurt

My heart aches for other’s betrayal

I don’t have much to offer

Except how to love

I won’t be featured in a glamour magazine

But maybe, just maybe

Someone will remember my heart

Maybe in some small way 

I have touched somebody, in a meaningful way

Underneath her spotless appearance

Is a heart as cold as a graveyard

She is selfish, vicious and dangerous

She walks over people

To take what she wants

She will sap you of your power, 

Until you are destroyed

Till you end up in hell, with her by your side

I will fix my eyes on my Faithful Bridegroom

He is a covenant keeper through every season

He is my safe place

The love of my life

I don’t need all the trimmings 

And stuff bought by money

“Name brands” Can’t buy what I have

It goes deeper,

Than the sound that pride leaves

It’s in the eyes of my children

When they look at me

It’s in the touch of so many special friends 

Sent by my King

In the face of the hopeless when I reach out to help

I can see God’s hand alive in my life

I know it was worth 

The pain and betrayal

In the wilderness

I saw His glory

I was ruined by 

His great love for me

I have found my place

In His heart I fit best

~ Ebigale Wilson
