Because I Am Saved


I no longer live in that dreadful nightmare

Full of self hate, shame and blame

I will not waste another night crying

Or trying to forget and failing

I will not dwell on it

Or be afraid

But move on with my life

I will live for what is ahead of me,

Not what happened but can't be changed

God would not have let this happened to me if there wasn't a reason

Maybe my reason is to help others

Teach them how to forgive and keep fighting

The memories are still horrible

But somewhat masked by my awakening

I am not completely healed yet

But at least I am on my way

I forgive you for doing something that horrible to me

At one point I was so lost and broken

I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror

But I can now

Because I am saved

A victim has to find solace some way and somehow, or the insanity of an act can drive them crazy. Very heartfelt and beautiful. Great Job!

Touching. My heart was blown open almost 7 years ago when I became saved. The Lord came to me and showed me that he was real.......and that I was a beloved son of his. Thanks for the great reminder of his grace. This was very well written and I'm voting up for it. You are a powerful writer prettynutjob.
