a prodigal

a prodigal

A Poem by maddy

a prodigal is a personal poem about me finding my identity in Christ


it became overwhelming.
it all crashed down and all at once the atmosphere was so compelling
i was in a place full of confusion, doubt, and distance from every human form
even the one whom created me, 
He was only a whisper away but i was blown away onto a desolate platform
this desolate windstorm became my box in this time of hiding
i felt alone but looking around me i only recognized the darkness.
it was all i could see because my eyes were blinded by the shade that sheltered me
i was so scared and felt darkness in every sqaure inch beside me
happiness now became a faraway wanna-be
my emotions were steady and tranquil, i was comfortable in my despair

my eyes became open and i now realized this was spiritual warfare

the enemy had blinded me and i was lied too and deceived
but now the love of God had intervened

the enemy did not come as a devil to me but he came in everything i thought i wanted,
in everything i thought would make me enlightened

but now, HE is frightened

this was nothing more than a hazy lie that had been planned to cause me to stumble on rocks that my creator had already overcome
i took these lies and traded them for truth, they now were nothing more than depositable income

the struggles were real, but the love of God was now revealed.

 the mountains i have carried i was only supposed to be climbing
when i was comfortable in my sin, i was only reclining -
but now Jesus was refining

He called me home and chased me down with furious love
i was met face to face with purpose
my devotion to God was no longer just lip service

my first love was awakened and i no longer felt forsaken

He called me His and He told me that He loved me before i even knew His name
He told me that He loved me and died for me knowing there's a chance i may never love Him back.

That there are no strings attatched

I was wrecked, beautfully wrecked now
No words, no waters could quench this love - 

this love that i am so undeserving of.

with the patience of my faithful Father,
i found my identity as His daughter

I was home.
