My buddy Rhoni introduced me to Velvet Verbosity‘s 100 Words Challenge a few weeks ago. Today I finally got up the nerve to try it out. I think I may have gotten the prompt for this week mixed up but the point was to write 100 words and I did. So here it is:
Uninvited you came, your words staining my heart
Naked emotions flail around me gasping for air
Breathless and shaking I search for solace, search for comfort
I am ashamed for things I do not own, tarnished by another’s sin
Drowning in tears I hear a voice, some one calling me by name
Dead lay my past beside me, on a shore of salvation I am reborn
Eagerly I look around with my new eyes, my spirit alive, my ears full of the sounds of praise.
Next to me I see The Book, I read His Word, I feel His Grace.
