Five Minute Friday :: Brave

File:Tibidabo.jpg

There was a time when I may

have thought I was brave.

I jumped at new chances

with the passion of a tidal wave.

Fear seemed far away

and the possibilities endless…

And it is often with a twinkle

of nostalgia that I peer back in time

to those days of seeming invincibility.

But this I call to mind and therefore

I have hope ::

Because of the LORD’S GREAT LOVE

I AM NOT CONSUMED

HIS COMPASSIONS THEY NEVER FAIL

HIS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING.

For you see, I traveled with him

in these days of young and brave but

I had yet to find the end of myself

in a heart that could be broken,

betrayed, and cry with the grief down deep

of a world gone wrong.

I came home weak after days of courage waned

and I cared for a mama eaten away by cancer.

And the prayers of hope died a slow death that

she would be healed in this life.

And there are other private pains that took

my once brave and squashed it with a cold hand of steel.

But that is not the end of the story…

is it for you?

I have learned these past 10 years of a brave

that lays my naked soul upon an altar of

surrender.  That merges all of its

brightest hopes and dreams with

the light of the world to come and when

I ache to see that world come here. NOW.

My brave cries frail and full and weeps

upon the bed of this world’s sorrow and asks

for the strength to live in any small, miniscule

way that would buff the dull pictures too many

have of the God who is LIFE & more and the

only faithful for all the ages past and all the

ages to come…Embodied brave that molecule by molecule

is conquering till the end and bringing to life a life that will never end.
