A scarred but healed heart...

I was writing in my journal pouring out my struggle and then the following flowed from my pen:

My heart is shards of glass
some too small to see
with the human eye.
Splintered into nothingness
no glue can form
once what was
a beautiful heart.
Beating true in innocence
love and trust.

My heart now lies
in shattered shards of glass.
Glass dust
beyond any healers hand.

I see the healer
take the pieces and
 mend the fragments
together again.

The shards so sharp
they cut his fingers
leaving a trail of
red red blood.
Holy blood spilt for me
in taking my brokenness
and healing me whole
once again.

I see the glass dust
beyond repair
lifted carefully
in his clay pot
and a wonderful light
healing touch.
A potters wheel.
A miracle touch.

Behold a heart
bold and new
with scars showing
in royal blue.
Scars of love
scars of experience
scars of the past
the journey of healing.

Scars woven into
a beating heart
and beating.

Beating to the father's teaching
beating to the holy spirit
beating with our Lord Jesus.

A heart for others
a heart for helping
a heart reaching out
a heart for mending
a heart to show the way,
a journey of healing.
A light of hope
a new beginning.

A new song singing
from a scarred
but healed heart.
Pain withdrawn
joy in filled.

Beating in tune
with the universal
A song of love
our brothers and sisters
the love of a family
the love of healing.

    1. Thank you Launna for your message and encouragement here that we can heal and to not give up hope of that healing. I think I was in danger of thinking healing for me was not going to happen, too much to heal but you are right we can heal and after all God is a big God. Thank you Launna also for your honesty in sharing where you are at in your healing journey. Blessings to you Launna.

  8. That was beautiful. I especially liked the imagery part where the Healer's fingers were cut by the shards. That God has felt the pain that has broken us.

    I also appreciated the hope contained in the poem
