Child

a poem by Holly M. Bol, FCA staff member

Child, what are you holding on to? Child, I want to know. 1grace in purple hatChild I want you to tell Me. And then, I want you to let it go.

Set it down. Walk away. My precious child.

Don’t you know your name?

Your name is Free. Forgiven. Chosen and Divine.

1boy & girl with ballChild, your name is Holy, Pure, Precious.

And You’re Mine.

Your name is Called.

Oh yes, that’s true. I’m calling Your name.

I’m calling You!

So rise up my child. Come to Me.

Rise up my child.

I have set you Free! 1students  (5) copy

To walk in the light and not the shadow of shame.

To stand up tall.

Now break off those chains the bondage, destruction, dark and despair.

They no longer hold you, I have freed you from there.

1boy on horseYou are worth it.

You are mighty.

You are blessed and redeemed.

Precious and Holy, Pure and Clean.

So answer my call.

Hear my voice.

I’m calling your name.

You have a choice to come running to Me. Please, don’t run away.

In the shadow of My wing Is where you’re welcome to stay.

I am your protector, Your Father, Your comforter, and friend.

I am your champion, supporter, Everlasting, end to end.

I am your guardian, Your strength, Your warrior, and your might.

I am Your sun your moon Your day and your night.

1Kate copyaI am your white your black, All colors between.

I am the most brilliant of pictures.

I am the unseen.

I am your story, your song,

I am where you belong.

I am your Father, your God, your Savior, and friend.

I am your everything–that is who I am.

Alpha, Omega, Beginning, and End.

So child again I ask what are you carrying? 1guy holding young girl

It’s too big for you. Will you consider sharing?

Hand it to me, I’ll take good care.

Hand it to me, now take a rest over there Under that shady spot–the one under my wing.

Take a nap and over you, I will sing.

For my child is back. My child is home.

This Father is rejoicing because you’re no longer alone.

Come to me, child.

Just come to me.

Come to me, child.

I will set you free
