Do you want to be made whole?

Do you want to be made whole?
Then, rise. Take up your bed and walk.

Walk in your freedom
Run not out of fear
Face the darkness and know that
You control the light
Because you are the light.

The light -- bright and spotless
whole and free

You are the light in you own life, shine.

You are powerful beyond measure
and your greatest power is to choose.

Choose to love or hate this story.

Choose to love or hate your mom.

Choose to love or hate yourself.

It's your power and has always been.

Choose, over and over again until your light
no longer shrinks when the shadows make your flesh crawl.

Thank your flesh for reminding you of your
choice to love.


Will you be made whole?

The decision is yours.

It always has been.

Background Information:

I've known Alexis (Lex) for several years now. We met online. During that time, she's faced many personal obstacles, and have bested them all. This poem is a testament to her amazing growth, and how much she's allowed herself to remember of All That Is.

She was gracious enough to allow me to share her poem in this setting. For that, I extend my heartiest thanks.

Thanks for posting this poem; God's knows how to reach us when we need him the most. That poem is a confirmation of what I am doing right now in my life!

"God's knows how to reach us when we need him the most."

Yes, He does. Saul, who became Paul, knew a thing or two about that.

Sometimes, God's reassurance comes from the most unlikely places, at the most unlikely times.
