How to Soar

I wrote this poem several days ago but haven’t been able to post it until now. It was inspired by something incredibly sweet that was said to me by a friend – words that really encouraged me and made me feel like God was using me to be a help to her.

How to Soar

Tears of joy stream down my cheek…
I’ve never felt this way before;
That God, who answers as I seek,
Has led me through an open door.
The choices I’ve made – both bad and good –
He’s used to cleanse and change my heart,
Even though I have never understood
Why He’s allowed the things that tore me apart.
I know my God is good – He’s proven it’s true;
And He’s shown me time and time again
That if I will only follow His cue,
He’ll guide and direct me to the end.
I don’t know what He has in store,
But I know He wants what’s best for me;
He’s slowly teaching me how to soar
How to let go, and how to live as free.
