The Real Church

There are some who say

The church is a sacred place—

And to let my feelings show

Would be a real disgrace.

So as I dressed for church

And finished with my hair—

I glanced into the mirror

To be sure my mask was there.

*

I heard the Lord so gently

Speaking to my soul

“My child, I long to touch you—

I want to make you whole…”

*

“I brought you here today—

Not for you to hide—

But that others on life’s journey

Could help you see inside…

“In the world, it’s hard

To let the real you show—

But here, My child, you’re safe—

It’s where hurting people go.

About Sue Cass

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and an abuse survivor. I am the founder & C.E.O. of Elah Ministries, Inc. A non-profit 501c3 ministry that offers hope, healing, and deliverance to hurting souls. I have seen the Grace of God work mightily in both individual lives (mine included) and through the support groups I have led. Elah Ministries, Inc. is supported strictly by donations and the proceeds from the sale of my books. My prayer is that all hurting souls may find God's freedom through His Grace, mercy, and healing. I have also penned six published books, both fiction and non-fiction, hoping to enlighten, uplift, and entertain in a way that honors my Heavenly Father and draws my readers closer to our Lord Jesus Christ. May God bless you with His peace, hope, love, and joy as you follow Jesus Christ.

  2. I agree that it is sad that our churches are not all that they should be. It seems we’ve slipped from what Christ’s church is suppose to be. Many are more interested in numbers than actually helping the hurting. I appreciate your comments and support. Have a blessed evening.

  3. I know that I am blessed with my church family. I attend a church of about 700, but only connect deeply with about 10 or so, through small groups. Trusting people is a big challenge after abuse, especially when the abuser is a church going manipulator. It is important to remember that God is the reason I go to church…to worship and remember what He has done for us. I appreciate your words.. .. you describe what so many long for…..

    • Hi Army of Angels: I agree that it is important to remember why we go to church, to worship and hear God’s Word. It’s sad to see the harm that is also done by believers within the church to other believers. It shouldn’t be that way but sadly it happens. Thank you for your comments and support.
