when I was down and low when my life was bleak .... and darkness was my veil and I could not see a future ahead and I closed my eyes to all family and friends ... ~ God gave me a book called the Bible, a book with books within and that has made all the difference ~ the book has become so meaningful to me for all the answers are within the pages and pages each day I read the book and am enlightened each day my future looks brighter for I have embraced the words written ... thousand and thousands of years ago ~ God gave me a book called the Bible, a book with books within and that has made all the difference ~ the Psalms and Proverbs bring me comfort from my despair and Solomon's Song inspires me as does .... the Lamentations I love the Old Testament the best and all the passages yet, the New Testament has so much to teach and I gather insight ... to help me on my life journey ~ he gave me a book called the Bible, a book with books within and that has made all the difference ~ it happened one day when I was recovering from a near death walking alone .... wandering ... lost in dark thoughts I happened to enter the hospital chapel and the book was there ... waiting ~ and I opened it and that has made all the difference for God showed himself to me that day ~ and the book is the Bible ... ______________________ January 21, 2022 (edit) Poetry/Free Verse/God Gave Me A Book Copyright Protected, ID 01-1423-403-21 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Submitted to the Premier contest, Show Me God sponsor, Unseeking Seeker, Judged 01/24/2022 Fourth Place
