Today

 
Today my life is changed
By the grace of God 
I was once a child lost, with no care to be found
I didn’t even care if I were six feet under ground
Life as I perceived it had no meaning for me
Because I’d allowed the enemy to blind fold me
That in turn made me unable to see
Exactly what my Lord had in store for me
That is until I prayed to have the enemy unloose me
From the torture and the pain that I’d allowed him to cause me
There was a time in my life when I honestly thought
That I didn’t care about anything in this world
Not myself, not my two little boys, not even my beautiful baby girl
Now that I’ve come such a long, long way
I know that it was the Lord who loved me every single day
He has been my strength when I had none
He has been with me always when I felt I had no one
He was with me when I got off drugs
He was with me when I realized it was okay to love-
Myself
So today I am a better person than the one I used to be
Because 
I’ve finally realized  
That the only person I ever had to prove this to was me

    So touching "Gods gracious Gift" This is beautiful. Look at you now Janice. I am so proud of you and Jesus is smiling and the Angel's are clapping. Ps I don't care if you choose not to hyphenate your words they are wonderful. Those that critic are penny wise and dollar foolish. God's love to you and yours Michael Torres
