Marie

Limited choices in a limited time
Bound by expectations and dreams of freedom—
The price too high to bear,
The sacrifice too complex to understand...
Young hearts fighting against old designs;
There's bound to be heartbreak.

The tears of a young girl fall,
Screams in the night can't expell her pain
And silence does little to mask her shame.
Trapped in the shadows of this sinful world,
Her childhood vanishes in raging flames.
Who will go to her? Who will unbreak her heart?

She has always been loved
That limitless love that operates unconditionally
And it has come to claim her,
To remind her of her worth.
If only every girl had this love
If every tear could be made whole.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
