The Cry to Be Free


The Cry to Be Free

Real help.
Genuine help.
In dire need.

Lacking guidance.
Knowledge without wisdom.
Feeling so uncertain,
Confused and unsteady.

Crying out for motivation –
The awakening of desires,
Granting divine purpose
And personal significance.

Desperate to thrust out the evil
That propels compulsions,
Dependencies and extremes,
Ending only in destruction.

Is the cry to be free.
Is the cry that You hear
As You hasten to my side.

~ Laurie Pontious-Andrews

Psalms 22:24

For You have not despised my cries of deep despair; You have not turned and walked away. When I cried to You, You heard and came.

I have never let you down, never looked the other way when you were being kicked around. I have never wandered off to do My own thing; I have been right there, listening.


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.
