Through the window I looked gasping for breath.
The heat choked me, gripping my throat, tightening its tentacles.
He was finished with me; you were just getting started.
You rescued me with a brief, cool breeze – it penetrated the thickness of the dense air.
You sent me hope – to prepare me. I knew you’d stay with me – he wasn’t going to stop.
I sought you out by my spirit; you spoke to my soul as deep unto deep. I treasured you in my heart
For a time – until I blamed you.
I didn’t understand.
The pain blinded me, made me deaf to your tender words.
Was I alone in my brokenness?
My shattered heart sobbed for the child that never was.
Betrayed by my fears.
Overlooked by love and driven to my knees.
Saved and unchained at Humility’s Throne
You washed me in your grace.
Restored my hope, made all things new, and gave my past a purpose.
You sought me out like a shepherd over his sheep.
For eternity you love me
Then and now and all days future.
You counted all my tears and saved them in a bottle.
You redeemed my life from the pit and crowned me with your glory.
I am renewed.
