Breaking Free

(I dedicate this poem to all who do and all who don’t yet understand the battle for your mind and spirit.  I pray the Truth sets you free.)

Breaking chains

Purpose to take action today for the person that you want to become tomorrow and thereafter!


Another thought runs through my head-

Will it breathe life?

Leave me for dead?

They come fast, consuming my mind,

Retelling the past I want to leave behind.


I knew not that all thoughts are not my own.


I have an enemy,

Trying to clone me,

A war raging within me,

Where good and evil spin wildly.

In the middle my arms stretched wide,

“Cleanse me of this mess inside!”


Satan sifting like wheat,

But, God, I kneel at Your feet.



Breaking Free,

Of the lies and destruction he wants me to be!


I stand atop the Words of Life-

Moving mountains, crushing strife!

Peace flowing more freely in my cerebral space,

I’m trusting You as my resting place.

Negative thoughts come back and knock,

But, this time I hit “delete” and “block.”


The Breath of Life comes rushing through,

“Let Me love and heal you.”

My heart wide open.

My mind renewed.


A daily war awaits you and I,

It’s in our mind, invisible to the eye.

Two steps forward, a step back is not a fail-

For with God you and I will always prevail!


Your Enemy Exposed

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” ~Ephesians 6:12

Your Mind: The Battlefield

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Messiah.” ~ 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Your Cleansing

“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind.”  ~Ephesians 4:23

Your Blessing, Hope, and Future

“And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” ~Romans 12:2


About Laurie Popovich, Pops of Life

Hi! So, happy you stopped by. Stick around while I tell you a little bit about me and my journey. I’m a daughter to Spanish parents and a sister, too! That means I love family, hugs, to share my 2 cents, music, dancing, flavorful foods & coffee. I’m a wife, twice to the same man, in a thrice redeemed marriage. I love deeply because I know no other way and it has filled my life with hope. I’m a believer of the impossible. I’m a mom of 5 beautiful and full of life blessings; but was only supposed to have one. You see, I had cancer; given 6 months to live when our first and daughter was 2. They’re a product of the impossible. I’m a homeschool mom who didn’t think she could teach: first, at all then, at different levels, different styles. I teach in what in my mind was the impossible. I’ve walked through many trials; some that have taken my life in many aspects, including literally. I have overcome the impossible. I’m a spiritual sister and friend. I love to share and encourage others in life to live the impossible. I’m a daughter of the King; a powerful Creator and Redeemer of the impossible – me - and I can be impossible  I love to…love people…encourage others…being a student of life and the impossible …laugh at myself… journal my hopes & dreams & pray to make them a reality… journal my fears & seek to turn them into victories…eat chocolate…cook for many & watch them enjoy the food & fellowship…go against the grain because you never know what blessing is there waiting for you…flirt with my husband openly because I’m in love…squeeze our 5 blessings often because I’m grateful & amazed by them…say sorry often because I make mistakes, stress & well, I’m a mess at times…I run to clear my head…and…I run to God because He’s my source of strength, hope, and love. I’m not where I was and I’m not where I’m yet going to be; I’m under construction deeply desiring to enjoy the journey. I know you have a unique and exciting one too, and I can’t wait to learn and enjoy the journey with you! Grateful, Laurie
