The Real Me


The Real Me

I am two people.
The Real Me.
And the one I am always at war against.

The Real Me desires to continue on,
No matter what,
To face the fear,
Feel the emotions,
And deal with all that needs to be dealt with
Until nothing else remains.

The one I am always at war against,
Wants to continue hiding,
Continue denying,
Continue harboring,
Dwelling in fear,
Abiding in darkness,
And self-imposed exile.

Her demands are loud.
Her power is fierce.
Her lies have manipulated and
Controlled my destiny
For far too long.
She will not be permitted to prevail!

The Real Me is empowered by God
To be a Victor.
To obliterate the power of the Generational Curse
And pronounce the Blessing.
To reclaim the ground stolen by Satan,
And rebuild the Ancient Ruins
Long ago devastated through his hand.

Her power is diminishing
As the Real Me grows
In Strength
And Beauty.

I am beginning to see,
To feel,
To breathe,
To believe.

I am beginning to experience
The Depths of the Father’s
And Joy.

I am beginning to feel His warm embrace.
I am beginning to behold His beautiful Face.

He is my Strength.
He is my Defense.
He is my Protector.
He is freeing the Real Me
From isolation and prison.
He will not let the Real Me give up.

About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
