Brokenness tears down walls Freed in the midst of unjust ways Through struggle and through doubt Chained to pain Drugged by societies vanity Judgement is owned by questioned sanity Strained by grief Needing relief Searching the halls for secret walls Where is the escape route Then brokenness lead the way The walls perceived, were only a belief Brokenness rumbled through every crack The inner echoes shattered like glass The kingdom has no walls No halls that echo our calls It is the freedom of creation The divine wireless call above it all Get back up and stand tall The kingdom has no doors No ceiling, no floors It’s infinite and more It’s every sunrise and every storm It has no chains Other than the ones we create in discouragement and shame Courage and Joy REMAIN
It has been in my deepest pains I became chained. I found that within the walls of my own doubt, I denied myself, I built a Kingdom within that was not what Gods plan was when Grace spoke, the kingdom of God is within. I visualized a palace, a castle per se, with brick walls and long halls, darkness at times, emptiness and isolation closed in . I had no escape route it seemed, I didn’t even realize I had done that until one day on my morning walk with God and my dogs, I was stopped in my tracks. With the sun shining in the morning glare everywhere, where the mist laid on my skin and the clouds remained on the horizon again. I GOT IT!!!!! I felt God…………. WITHIN is NOT with walls and halls, there are no bricks and mortar and bridges to cross. Within is open like nature, full of views and the freedom to move, it is not entrapment my child with doors and corridors, it is not the perception you created to protect your fears. It is in the wilderness of pain your joy is found, release the chains, brokenness is simply an openness to recieve. The chains fell off and the walls fell down and the castle I built that held my grief, my anger and my doubt had no where to be stored and I ran out of rent to pay the bill for the storage unit I built.
