Child of trauma

Child of pain

Jesus Christ knows your name

There's healing healing

Living Waters

Released in you

From your Father

Excerpt from Outside the Gate


-THE JUDGE


"She doesn't look like the girl you are describing." said the judge

"Can you not find a home for this child?"

He looked down at me over his glasses, puzzled.


I stood before him clutching a stuffed animal in my hand.

My dress was several sizes too big

Almost touching the floor

A feral looking child with a mop of curly hair

My glasses were too big form my small face


My dress was stained with blood

Dark stains, now barely visible


Could he see the blood?


I looked up at him with hope.

Did I see kindness in his eyes?


The woman standing beside me raised her voice.

She raised her finger and pointed at me.


"She is incorrigible and unmanageable!"


Those two words had tremendous power.


I felt myself shrinking with guilt and shame.

I lowered my head once again


The judge sighed.


"Alright," he said


"Send her to the school."


He did not see the blood.


He saw the pointing finger

THE ACCUSER'S FINGER


The accuser's finger is broken

Jesus my Savior has spoken

My hope, my joy, my surety

Freedom is released in me


Jesus, Jesus my companion

Removing fear, replacing anger

Outside of time and circumstances

Never changing as life advances


The accuser's finger is broken

Jesus my Savior has spoken

My hope, my joy, my surety

Freedom is released in me


Sweet is the gift of repentance

Casting down all defenses

The cross, the cross, love's golden key

Opened heaven's gate for me


The accuser's finger is broken

Jesus my Savior has spoken

My hope, my joy, my surety

Freedom is released in me


Healing, healing all my senses

Wrapped in the glory of His presence

No room for fear, no room for rages

The Spirit with His love replaces


The accuser's finger is broken

Jesus my Savior has spoken

My hope, my joy, my surety

Freedom is released in me


The Holy Spirit has filled me up

Overflowing from heaven's cup

Jesus, Jesus, in my ear

Whispers words my soul can hear


The accuser's finger is broken

Jesus my Savior has spoken

My hope, my joy, my surety

Freedom is released in me
