I Don't Want to Live in This Box.

Boxed in.

Four stifling corners.

Four hindering walls.

Each built with my hands.

Boxed in.


You couldn't put me there.

I'm my own culprit.

Words spoken last longer than intended.

Stereotypes linger.

Scars formed.


Boxed in.


Traps never meant to hold.

Release- a healing away.

Broken walls.

Restored.

Freedom.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1)


In His Name,
Jennifer

Oh, how I easily I box myself in. I think I relate with every word you've ever written on this blog :)

Girl, Me Too!

Rebecca, that is so encouraging, and so God. I love how He does that- makes right connections.

I have loved getting to know you between our blogs! Seriously, you are awesome, my friend!
