I found God
I found God
I was lost, alone, and hurt
But never forgotten.
I cried tears of pain and tried to reach out, but everyone seemed so far from me.
I walked lonely paths, I clambered the highest mountains without any direction
I tried to reach out and found myself crying, but still everyone seemed to be far from me.
I fell to the ground and found myself on my knees.
And it was on my knees
That I heard a voice inside my head.
It whispered, “I am for you and I am with you.”
It made no sense to me, but as I was down on my knees my heart started to speak,
I could not control what it was saying, though it was prevailing.
As I was on my knees the voice appeared again.
The same voice said, “I hear you my child.”
I listened further, and noticed the peace which flowed through my body and soul,
All that was happening while I was on my knees.
My tears started to dry up like a fish pond during a drought
Suddenly I knew who I had to reach out to at all times.
I called upon His name and said, “I accept and trust in you.”
In that moment I found I had a path to lead me and someone to reach out to
And did not need approval from anyone.
In that exact moment I learnt I had found God.
I had found divinity.
I had found my true hidden place.
In that moment I learnt
I had found my home and finally the one who accepted me the way I am.
I knew then I had found harmony and would forever have a true resting place.
