Who I was to who I am

There I was and yet here I still am
once chasing that feeling,now with Gods help and by His grace
becoming a good man
my mother prayed and grandma cried... my actions said I didn't care
back there are haunting memories,situations,instances I seldom ever share
when He sat me down in a concrete room... I cried myself to sleep
wondering of who I'd become,trying on my own to be strong... but,still feeling so weak
I prayed and asked Jesus to pick me up once again
I apologized and prayed to my savior "Lord get me out of this sin!"
so here I am years later with a life I call my own
reading my Bible by the morning light,praising my God who has restored so much
and blessed me, with life, a saved wife, and a home!

    I loved your testimony in this. I like a poem that you can't wait to read all of. I love the title as well. The life that we get from Him is the true reality! Congratulations on placing in this contest. Well deserved.

    Congratulations on your win, it was well deserved. I know God doesn't hate me, sometimes I just get so frustrated that the things in my life are going so awry. But i appreciate your comments and the way that you feel. I will say that I REALLY do think I did something in a previous life that was bad for me to have all the crappy luck I have had in this life, but I am also blessed as well. You win some you lose some, but at least I am still playing right?.......Aleera
