Poems by T.J. Swisher

Dear Friend

full of light,
        dispel darkness
              and give it no air time,
take a deep breath,
    actually three,
  take the heaviness
          and give it to Him,
rest in knowing you're lovable to Him,
        that you're a child of God,
                          a trophy of grace
precious and priceless
    that is never alone
        with the One who is greater
      inside you than
  any within the world,
know you are loved
  and aren't built to bear it alone,
  keep pressing into the Word
                  even in tears,
                              tears purge
and keep the enemy from stealing
                your moment,
          carry the presence and peace
    of Him into everything
and know you are safe and protected.
