Raw Heart

I wrote the poem below when I was feeling brokenhearted and betrayed.  I remember being in such pain that all I could do was fall on my face before God and ask Him …


His answer to me then, now, and always is “I am enough”.

He is after all, I AM.

I ran across it again and thought I’d share.  Just in case there are any hearts out there that have ever felt raw.


The love of Christ is a chaste fire. 

His passion does not betray the heart to the flesh. 

His faithfulness covers the nakedness of tears.

 His sacrifice heals the emptiness of the soul. 

 Keep me in Your fire, Lord, and quench my thirst. 


In His love,
