Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

Jealousy, the green-eyed monster

Oozing up from my battered soul

Bruised by lack, insecurity

Fearing not being good enough


Compliments never satisfied

Achievements gradually faded

Nothing silenced the emptiness

Shouting you are a nobody


Seeking validation, esteem

I chased the American dream

Accumulating possessions

Knowledge, college degrees, careers


Husband’s promotions, gross income

Children’s grades, achievements, clothing

Family, vacations, hobbies

Overtime grew unfulfilling


Despair, hopelessness, depression

My daily walking companions

Tossing and turning all night long

Grinding teeth, terrifying dreams


Like Solomon I recognized

All was a pursuit of the wind

No satisfaction, just torment

Futility under the sun


Thankfully, Papa rescued me

Welcomed this lost prodigal home

Captivated my heart with love

Gently assured me I was safe


Papa’s unconditional love

Shelter on my healing journey

Silencing demons of my past

Defanged, no longer poisonous


Exquisite love of my Savior

Teaches me mercy, forgiveness

Purpose, legacy, destiny

At long last free to dream again
