On my journey,
through this thing,
that we call our life,
I have taken so much for granted,
choosing wrong over right.

I have hurt so many people,
with the choices that I made,
not realizing,
the sacrifice,
they gave.

Then a voice whispered,
in my ear so tenderly,
you are my child,
take my hand,
I offer eternity.

With open eyes,
that once were blind,
and a heart,
so full of love,
I was saved, in the nick of time.

Sin is all around us,
and our Free Will,
shall be untouched,
but God offers forgiveness,
because He loves us that much.

Now my journey,
is headed somewhere,
I'm not spinning in my tracks,
God fixed my broken engine,
I will never go back.

Forward, and upward,
His word is leading me,
as I share,
what He gave,
words for all to see.

Thank You Dear Jesus,
I speak these words so true,
for the cross that You died on,
freed my soul,
so one day, I'd be with You.

You don't know me but you commented on a poem of mine. I want you to know that I am still alive and well. I read your poem and remembered who it was I was living for. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful poem and for being a beautiful person. Michelle

This so well defines the human, how prone we are and yet how loved and forgiven we can be by God. This is lovely in its flow and message. Michael

Christy as always this is beautiful, I am amazed at the change in my life since I accepted Jesus. I was a hard case, now my wife calls me a big old softie, but in a good way. My only regret is I didn't take the plunge sooner. I daily look forward for your emails and comments, your friend always, Ron
