“The past need not cast a shadow over our life” – Jay Kesler (Taylor University, 2/2/1998)
“Broken Background, Life Emerging”
Trauma, death, grief, and pain
all tempt us to remain
stuck in that moment of brokenness.
They have no hold on us unless
we choose to remain
frozen in the pain
and fear of that day.
Instead, there is a way
that leads to life and joy
if you stop playing coy
with your identity, the true one.
You are a beloved daughter, a dearly loved son.
Lift up your gaze,
emerging from the haze
of dead dreams and grieving pain
is the One whose LOVE will always remain.
Empty promises He will never make,
but He walks with you for His Father’s sake.
Fix your eyes on Him,
surrender your pain.
Let your brokenness fade to dim,
and a true friend you will gain.
