A Heart Set Free by Melanie R.

A Heart Set Free by Melanie R.

A great winded rhythm underway; prickled readiness underfoot. A mission called into blended shadows- undulate in shades of smoke as hope glimmers.

Drumming a cleared path of yearning webs for justice. Where a brightened light pierced an open door. Candlelit wonders motion the clouded poufs to view a saved heart…set free.

Chosen and preserved.
A living hope guarded in faith.
Examined, mourned, pressed, scarred, shattered,…repaired;
never faltered, never failed.

Search me, Oh Lord, and know my heart.
Lead me through the everlasting way.
I’ve been tested, and tried…know I am true-know my heart. You are my indwelled heart pounding through our shared domain. Monitor my steadfast rhythm and the intricate design of each ticking; of each pulsed beat transformed by this undeniable salvation.

Echoed chambers of my heart.

Centered rhythm deepest part.

Search me, Lord, and see I’m true-

slated clean-each beat for you.

Five waves count each beat’s refrain, monitored life both joy and pain.
Set each P, Q, R, S, T…
My heart declares my love for thee.

And if one day my chambers still,
my heart set free-
fulfilled Your Will.

Psalm 139:23
Search me Oh God, and know my heart.

Matthew 6:21
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in The Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.

The Lord searches the heart.
Give God your whole heart. Stay strong Mighty Warriors!

Float by Melanie R.

Float by Melanie R.

Punctured balloon.

Slowly dies.





Rubber thinned.

Knotted end.

Static- hair life.




Breath of God.



Contained within.


Patched Holes.

Renewed purpose.

Refilled life.

Carried on-high.

Rippled rejuvenation.


Faith message.


Rings on-high.

Reaches Heavens.


Thank you Jesus for allowing this journey of floating on grace through rare chronic illness/chronic pain and all of its complexities. Let us all continue to float on in Your mighty strength and purpose!

Isaiah 40:9
You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, 'Here is your God!

Psalm 68:11
The Lord gave the word; great was the company of those who proclaimed it.

Luke 19:37-38
And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

I’m so lost #no real help

I’ve been suffering with chronic pain fatigue for many years. Seen countless doctors and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, Cushings, hypothyroidism, cfs on paper. Dr never really talks about the symptoms just shakes head at my complaints. Pain meds. But yesterday I this episode where I can’t stay awake long I wake for awhile and start dozing off again. I feel drunk sleepy. It happened before thanksgiving went on for almost 2 weeks. I have a dog esa. Then I went to sleep early and couldn’t get up until 4pm. Is this normal with fibromyalgia? It’s scary

Lost my job

Finally found a job I could do, even on a "bad" day. It was basically seasonal. I was told by my coworkers what good job I was doing, and how I "fit in". My Supervisor even gave me a come back date.
Her Supervisor posted my job, I had to interview again, the whole thing, only for the big boss to choose someone else. 😞 So here I am without a job, without a family (they're either deceased, moved away, or have nothing to do with me bc I'm worthless to them) Thank God for my husband of 35+ years! But I just don't know what to do haven't found a job I can do. I guess I'm feeling sorry for myself. Thanks for being here if you've read my boo hoo this far.
Hope your day is good! #Fibromyalgia #ChronicFatigue #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #DegenerativeDiscDisease
