The Rest For Free

If not for the darkness, how would we appreciate the light?
All things have their reasons, I know
I think of my heart in days gone by
And woe, the harsh winds did come to blow
Perhaps a small branch was loosely hanging,
which pained me-
in this splendor of life

Yet to those who thirst,
let them drink freely of living water
And realizing that God is infact love,
teaches us love,
and trust through His Son

I think of those still waundering, lost and angry at God
As for me, once upon ago, I thought I was a goner
at any moment God would zap me 
And how, I modeled Our Heavenly Father, 
after the Dad I had had

I was mistaken....
God does not like sin
No, not at all
Yet he knew creating the earth,
 that one day, his son would take the sins of the world away

He does not mean to zap us from His throne on high
but teach us a better way for living

and guess what?
accepting Jesus as your Savior, deep within your heart he will stay
