My life has come full circle
I started out with many minuses
There were many tearful years
But everything turned out beautifully for me
The negatives were dealt with
The positives I held on to
Became lifesavers… literally!
I am not saying I’m a hero
I am not saying I did it all by myself
I am not saying that life is a bed of roses
But I am saying that my life turned around!
My sadness and sorrow was turned to joy!
From living in despair not knowing my future
I have become a person who is happy and content.
There was a time I stood at the brink
Not wanting to live
Not having a reason to live
There wasn’t a soul who knew of my predicament
No human soul…
But the God Who created me…
He knew and held on to me.
I cannot but stand in awe that…
This great God Who holds the universe in His hands
Should care so much for one tiny little soul
Why would He stoop so low to touch the ground
Just to comfort one hurting soul,
One girl no one else wanted.
Yes there He was day after day,
Night after night… without fail
Patiently bearing with my unbelief
Waiting for me to look to Him with faith.
It took Him years but He got my attention
When it dawned on me
That I had been saved in every way possible.
Today I know that no matter what
My God is for me, He is with me and will never leave me!
I can vouch that even in troubled times
He will always be by my side…
My biggest encourager, support, teacher and guide
My most gracious provider and protector
He even fights my battles for me!
Today I have no doubt
That anyone anywhere can make it
If they just give Him one chance
To touch their life.
The ever-loving hands of the great ‘I AM’
Are ever reaching down to hold a soul
To touch, to comfort, to fill their every need.
This great Creator didn’t stay in a heavenly mansion
Cut off from the pains we endure as humans
Jesus instead chose to become man,
Live a life like us and become a sacrifice
So we wouldn’t have to suffer ‘forever’.
His love for each soul compelled Him
To make the supreme sacrifice… So great is His love!
If you have doubts or fears
If your eyes are full of tears
If you have no source of joy or supply
Try Him! He won’t let you down
If friends and family have abandoned you
In your most dire need…
Call Him! He will be there for you!
