The morning is calm and the air is sweet,
But not before long, the darkness and I will meet.
Back and forth, day and night
I can’t do this much longer,
especially by my own might.
New mercies are promised and steadfast love is for me
but why is this stench still smothering me.
Your words drowned out by the sound of tragedy,
Hopelessness and fear constantly haunting me.
I know who this is that lingers behind,
he’s here to kill and destroy, corrupting my mind.
From deep in the snare I cry out to You
“LORD, please come and rescue me,
there’s nothing left that I can do.”
I am Your daughter, evil can not win
I will trust that Your victory, I will soon feel again.
Hello Friends! I am honored that you would choose to spend some time with me! My name is Melissa and oh do I carry a ton of baggage. Some under my eyes and even more in my mind! The good news, I have chosen to let that baggage serve as a reminder of the promise that “all things are used for good” and I’m hopeful it will allow us to bond over tears, smiles, and maybe even a little yelling. After all, I am a southern belle.
