Fixed heart, Redeemed life @MemoirJoyGirl
Topic - Healing
Grief struck deep, twisting my heart.
Been holding on, yet falling apart.
Burning pain consumed my chest.
The battle’s been tough; it’s time to rest.
Surrendering though may bring my end.
God’s unyielding touch said “give in” to Him.
Trust the unknown, see where I go.
Firm on this earth . . . or where the wind blows?
Looked up to the heavens, released my breath.
I prayed to live, not ready for death.
Casting my misery swiftly away.
“Not yours to carry,” I heard Him say.
He whispered so gently only my ears could hear.
Crying out to God had brought Him near.
His voice was clear, my heart was healed.
The pieces mended; a new rhythm revealed.
My heart is fixed, my past restored.
I’m alive today; I thank my sweet Lord.

A small bio about you:
I’m living my dream of writing-to-publish memoir, poetry & exhortations to give others a new hope. I’ve been writing since age 15; I’m now 65 and ready to share my heart with the world. I love my role of being grandmother most. I’ve found true love with a wonderful man late in life; it’s never too late. My son was my first true love who was the miracle that saved me from death; he introduced me to God which led me into my spiritual journey of recovery.
