What’s quite hidden beneath the layers,

Comes to the surface from loving prayers.

When God’s Spirit comes to wash her soul

His intent is to make her whole.


Like sudden birth pangs a vice grips down

Applying pressure to old wounds found.

What was imbedded in needs and wants

Emotions arise that are bulging taunt.


The surgeon doctor from the start

Pricks the foreskin of her heart

Bitter poison erupts like a boil

From what was past, from what was soiled.


How dare He wound me when I trust Him!

Clouded with tears, my vision grows dim.

Pain, rejection, abandonment.

Betrayal, anger, disillusionment.


Hopeless despair, so why do I care?

Life is bitter, I wish I weren’t here.  

She listens to all this silent talk

Screaming inside from whence she walks.


Who is this person that lives inside?

Certainly it’s not His faithful bride.

Repentance pours forth like a flood.

The wound washes clean from His blood.


She gives Him the pain, calls out for comfort,

Submits to Him all that’s fallen short.

She feels numb as the pain dissipates,

Shock and tears spent as she stares in space.


Not one blame or a word does He speak

Against all the pain from the soul that leaked.

With compassion He’s prayed her through.

Deep in surgery, He suffered too.


He brings healing on the other side

Giving understanding to His bride.

As the veil is lifted from her soul

She sees the light and is made whole.


Silent bands once compressed her breath

Her heart expands after facing death.

The hardened cracked shell was broken

From what was numb now can feel again


The heart of stone is now tender

Soft and pliable, it’s a wonder.

Gracious compassion, a kind heart beats.

Gentle tears for who’s faced defeat.


They too must face their own surgery

She’ll be there, understanding the purge.

When they recover, they’ll have one heart.

God’s gentle Spirit yields a brand new start.


... Until I was broken, I could not be open....


"Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer.” (Deuteronomy 10:16 NKJ)


Ezek 36:25-28 NKJV

Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.


Ezek 11:19-20 NKJV

Then I will give them one heart , and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
