The Couch by Rebecca

To Krista: 

The couch

where my freedom song is released

my redemption story is written

my hand is held

my tears are wiped

a place of growth

a place of courage

a place of comfort

a space cultivated by the Lord

a gift 

a story

a voice

in me

mine 

yet 

His

a home

yes, one of walls

but 

MORE

a state of being

a space within me

within you

within us

for us

a thin place

with "thin" people

who make MY walls crumble

& help me build them back up

stonger

where do I live

I truly live

me? 

Fearlessly

Seated

On 

The 

Couch

My beautiful friend, Rebecca. She wrote this poem to Krista, a Young Life director in Statesboro. Rebecca has been a young life leader while she's been in college at Georgia Southern. She spent a lot of her time here on this couch figuring out where God was calling her to. She was one of my last young life leaders that helped me the most. She just showed me true kindness and love that I wasn't shown by many girls my age. I love the friendship we have and I can't wait to see where her life takes her.
