You’ve given me…


This is an old one for me, but it’s one that strengthens my faith every time I read it. It brings me back to the place when I first wrote it. Brings back the feelings I felt that night and the struggles I had. Mostly reminds me of how God’s love lifted me from my knees and stood me up again.

 

You’ve given me something I’ve never had before

Something that I’ve always prayed for

I now feel I have something to lose

I have something other than fear to choose

You’ve given me something to die for,

To live and breathe for…

You’ve given it to me as a gift

One I could never pay back

My soul you do nothing but lift,

My spirit is released from this attack

My heart and mind have made the ultimate shift

With you I can do anything

Instead of believing I’ve got nothing to bring

You’re the reason my soul loves to sing

You’ve given me everything.

Deserve it, I do not…

Before you, my spirit was an empty lot

Just yearning to be bought,

But you paid for me in full

For the war had already been fought

You built up this simple fool

Now I’m thankful for what I’ve got,

Just waiting to be used as your sharpest tool

I know I must go through much refining

And patiently suffer through because perfect is your timing

I’m learning not to give into a narrow minded view

But open up my sights and realize it’s all about you

You’ve given me a heart full of today

With a hope for tomorrow

And a mind less concerned with yesterday.

You’ve torn down my walls of sorrow

And replaced them with people ever willing to stay,

Your building me up verse by verse, trial by trial

With a faith that will follow you mile by mile

Growing ever stronger all along the way.

I can see the heavenly changes you’ve made in me.

My God, you’ve given me nothing short of eternity…

My Mirror

    The mirror that I use to see me, isn’t the one that hangs on my bathroom wall or the one that sits in my room. The mirror that I use to see me are the words that I write when I’m completely honest with myself. The words I write come from within. They are our part of me, they are me. Though the inspiration comes from the Holy Spirit, He speaks from my heart. I’m thankful that God has given me this insight into who I am and allows me to do in a way that hopefully encourages others through my testimony. Whether or not the things I write can be called poems doesn’t matter me. It’s an expression of my inner thoughts. It eases my soul to get them out and possibly shared. Maybe they make sense maybe they won’t…guess we’ll find out. If you feel inspired or moved by anything I write on here, please share it with me. Thanks.
