Christian Fiction, Devotional

Paradise

Inspired by the song.

She glanced up to the sky

and could not understand why

the world was so endless and yet so

empty.

Because against the blue

the only inhabitants were

the lonely sun and moon.

How can one define a day? By the light the Lord gave?

She knew it was time to move

to pull her heart away

from what would never happen,

what would never stay.

So when the dawn broke

and her spirit spoke

she knew it was time again

to change to change

same same but different.

To fight in the workforce

to smile for her false friends

to laugh when the moment was “right”

to always choke back her fright.

To live for the money or the grade,

for the pleasure of the praise.

An endless but empty existence.

A paradise?

Then as the sky turned no longer blue

brooding into a livid gray

when she could not take weathered frays

of the life she knew,

when the fame was not worth the pain

when the failures found no answers

the heavens opened with rain, rain

and she saw she needed a final change.

The relief had come

a perfect being now undone

before her eyes, before her wrongs.

When the darkest dark covered her soul

her heart and mind losing control

the light splintered her fallen past

and she was free, free at last.

The sky was full full of color

of clouds of sun of moon of life of Him

it was endless but not empty

it was eternity

it was

paradise.

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
