Growing up, her childhood without her parents in her life. Years spent in an orphanage from the very beginning. Year after year, without being adopted. Year after year without having a friendship. Year after year without companionship. At 18, out of the orphanage on her own. A whole childhood where she never met her parents. Love is miles and miles away from this empty desert land.
As the years go by, these questions emerge. Can love come around, or is time pulling away? Can my voice be heard? Is there a fire that can warm this cold heart? Tired and brought down through these sorrowful Decembers. This heavy heart seems too far out of the light to have hope. The pain and rejection defining the heart, writing out words of despair in her story.
She wonders if there’s a reason to live. As she picks up the pills questioning life. The feeling of no one wants me. The state where she feels like her life doesn’t better. Tired of fighting day after day. This ongoing battle that doesn’t seem to end. The light at the end of tunnel couldn’t be seen from here. Like a long lasting rain of doubt. Never knowing the truth, a Light, a Savior.
Where the window comes to view. Where her voice can be heard. Where her story can be seen. Hope is around the corner. Love is on it’s way. Companionship is here. Faith is in the next step. A message is being sent. Truth is being delivered. An of act kindness to save this fragile heart is one door knock away. Purpose is being spoken. Despite these cold years of sorrow, a warm light is coming to bring joy. All it took was one person to witness, one person to set reunion, one person to share the news that saved a life.
This story is written after Jessica, a character from ‘Christmas on the Other Side”. An evangelistic play that I wrote last year.
“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
