I felt worn out... discouraged and defeated.
Nothing in my life right
seemed to be completed.
I felt alone, knocked down and betrayed!
I never thought I'd feel this scared and afraid.
In this very dark time, where would I run?
Where would any help actually come from?
I felt utterly worthless and quite alone...
With each passing day, in this place I called "home."
As I got up, each morning and opened the bedroom door.
And wondered if anyone cared about me anymore?
I felt a "tug" on my shoulder and looked around.
And noticed a bright light, shining toward the ground.
"I love you my son." Where the words I heard.
Excitement and hope within my heart was stirred.
I looked up and couldn't began to explain.
The love I felt when I called on Jesus' name!
From my ceiling, I saw what looked like an angelic being.
He said, "I am God! “ I can do anything!"
He reached down and gently picked me up out of bed.
Words of mercy and hope where what he had said.
"I am here so that you may rise up and live."
"All of your failures and sins I will forgive."
Everything inside of me... God did understand!
With him here... I knew victory was at hand!
This particular day, this was certain.
He took away my sins and heavy burdens!
Look at me now and it's so plain to see!
He can do for YOU, what he's done for ME!
