Intricate eyes revealing pain,
Mirrors reflecting on the shame,
There’s broken glass left in your soul,
Bleeding colors in a kaleidoscope,
Churning, turning, as tears try to cope,
From damage done by someone you know.
Intricate eyes don’t believe old lies,
Your wounded soul has been made whole,
The hurt from the past will heal at last,
For He will never let you go,
He will never let you go.
Intricate eyes smile at His name,
Mirrors reflecting joy not pain,
There’s soothing grace placed in your soul,
Cherished colors from a Kaleidoscope,
Learning, yearning, His Word brings new hope,
And healing comes from Someone you know.
Behind the lines
For those dealing with abuse of any kind there is hope and healing in the Lord Jesus Christ (The Man of Sorrows who takes away sin and sorrow).
The sins against you cannot be undone, but the resulting wounds can be healed and the sinner forgiven (just as our own sins were forgiven in Christ).
Think about the lovely and not the ugly, pray and pursue the peace of God that will guard your heart and mind, seek the soothing grace found by meditating on His Word, and look forward to the day all sorrow, pain, and death will cease.
Be encouraged by Paul’s letter to the Philippians (and for us):
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
(Philippians 4:4-9 ESV)
