What you don’t know
©2015 Helena C
There are secrets you wouldn't understand and don’t know.
The struggles I face they help me grow!
The ones I didn’t choose yet I’ve had to face,
Sometimes all alone and meant to be at my pace.
You think you know of all my pains,
Yet I do not speak of the awful chains.
The chains that held me; to keep me down.
The ones you placed on me to help me drown.
Yes, today I know the sins I had shared;
With a world that left me so utterly alone and scared.
I choose to look forward and continue to fight; a fight you are unable to believe or see.
The precious crimson blood that washed me clean, He shed His blood for me!
A price that for all mankind including myself was paid;
And at His feet my burdens have been laid!
Each day I reach to attain new heights;
I'll keep reaching although others may try to blur my sight.
I fall so often, yet I’ll complete this race!
I’m not perfect just saved by God’s amazing grace!!
I'm a wife of 20 years to a husband that consistently chooses to love me despite my flaws and a mother of 3 wonderful, loving and giving children. I have 6 babies waiting for me up in Heaven. I'm imperfect, often broken and learning; you will see many aspects of what makes me the person I am throughout this blog. You will find no condemnation from me. I have my fair share of problems and battles, I win some and lose some but by God's grace I'm continuing in the good fight. I'm attempting to live life authentically and I enjoy the many blessings God has given both in happiness and pain. I don't have any formal education in Biblical Studies and I don't claim to be an expert. I'm just sharing experiences and lessons I am learning or trying to learn as I go through life.
