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
