War Wounds
by Jennifer Molloy  
3/29/2012 / Poetry


I awoke this morning enveloped in deep sadness at the turn of events in my life and wondered how Christ would heal my latest war wounds. How would I carry these scars in a way that is God honouring. Persecution, and slander is sometimes part of a christian's life when deeply held convictions of God's truth permeates our lives. Compromise is not an option. The apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 2:3 says " You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ" this is easier said than done. The road that I envisioned ahead of me was rugged and steeped in loneliness and I was tired and spent. As the day dragged on I turned to the one source of comfort that had never failed me El Shaddai my God Almighty who is all sufficient. As I worshiped him the hurt that seemed so impossible to carry was lifted even though the road ahead was still rough. And I found great solace in the words of apostle Paul 2 Timothy 4:17 " But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory forever and ever Amen"! I long Lord to be in your kingdom and I know the hardship I endure won`t last forever. My body is enduring the deep groanings for a world that is dying and waiting for its returning king. I wait for the day that Isaiah 25 :8 says "He will swallow up death forever,and the Lord will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of his people he will take away from all the earth: For the Lord has spoken." Oh what a great and glorious day that will be.

HELP ME!

Here I am again my Lord, tears stain my face as I call out to you

Help me cause I really don't understand this and I don't know what to do

I was called out to be your hands so you could save her and open up her eyes to see

To let your Word bind up her wounds Lord and to set the captive free

But there are others out there that do beleive I'm not the one you sent

They persecute and slander me till I'm all but spent

These were people that I loved and they vowed that I took there friend away

All that I had done for them was gone now and I don't have any say

Anger and bitterness flows through them even thought I don`t respond

To all the taunts , half truths and the willingness to persuade others that I really don`t belong

I stand alone in disbelief sorry that they could not see

The work that you did through me their as blind as you can be

Can`t they see you working in her life as turns her world around

I know that she can do it because it`s you Lord that she`s found

Oh Lord I know you and you are here with me

Standing right beside me your strength will carry me

And I know that you are faithful to bring me throught this storm

Deliver me Lord as I stay hidden in you and a new day is reborn

Someday I`ll stand before you safe from any harm and my heart will rejoice

You`ll dry my tears and comfort me Lord for you always hear my voice

For I`ll always stand for you Lord for there`s just no other choice

Because of all your grace and goodness I know I am kingdom bound

So show me how to do this walk with the new courage I have found

How do I show these people who now despise me in all their disbelief

I can`t even look at them when my heart is so full of grief

But Lord I know you to be faithful and you can teach me what I can not see

So be patient with me till I can respond to them with grace, Oh Lord help me please

One day these wounds that left such deep scars will remind me where I`ve been

But they won`t define me because it`s the light of your Word that I`m living in
