RUDE AWAKENING

TAKEN,TO THIS DARK AND LONELY PLACE,WHERE I CAN'T SLEEP SO I STAY AWAKE.SEEKING MY WAY BACK INTO DAYLIGHT, SO I CLOSE MY EYES AND I HELD MY BREATH TIGHT.THEN I REALIZE I WAS MISTAKEN,ONLY TO KNOW I HAD A RUDE AWAKENING.SHAKEN,BEATEN,STABBED,EVEN SHOT,YEAH,THAT WAS THE PUNISHMENT I GOT,SO I KNEELED DOWN ON BOTH MY KNEES,AND I ASKED THE LORD,TO HELP ME PLEASE,TAKE ME FROM THIS PLACE I WAS TAKEN,HE SAID"BABY GIRL THIS IS A RUDE AWKENING"I HAD TO SHOW U WHERE U WOULD END UP,IF U DID'NT DRINK FROM UR BITTER CUP,SO I SAID "LORD,HAVE MERCY ON ME,AND GIVE ME YOUR LIGHT SO I CAN SEE",HE SAID FIRST YOU MUST ENDURE SOME PAIN,BUT TRUST IN GOD AND CALL ON JESUS NAME,I SAID "LORD,I'VE TRIED, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO PRAY,LET ME TOUCH THE HEM OF YOUR GARMENT AND I WILL BE OKAY.HE SAID KEEP HOPE,AND FAITH,AND TRUST IN THE END,AND BE BLESSED AND EXPERIENCE A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING.
