You Found Me

For Me You Suffered

You Found Me By Tracy

 Living In the city being wild and free

Partying with friends happy as I could be

Never worried about much of anything

You know when you are young you think you know everything

Just out of high school and ready to be my own boss

Thinking I was so cool not realizing there was a great loss

I had not come to talk with you in quite awhile

I was too busy with my life to think about how I could make you smile

I was being selfish and didn't even know

That what I needed most in my life is what I was letting go

But one Sunday morning a friend asked me to go

So into church I walked thinking I was cool but walking slow

Maybe felling guilty I really do not know

I listened to the word and somthing deep inside

Seemed to cry out loud it made me want to hide

What was it I was feeling something from long ago

Something I once cherished and now had let it go

Before I knew what happened I was at the altar call

Feeling like a child who had been bad and I felt so small

The tears were running down my eyes my knees felt weak not strong

Amazing how we know in our hearts when we have done something wrong

I looked upward towards the sky and asked you to forgive

Because the life I was living was not the one you wanted me to live

You turned my life around that day and made me see it was not right

You found me in the darkest place and you became my light

I am so sorry that I forgot to love you so

Because you suffered dearly so to heaven I could go

I have been with you since and I will never leave your side

You are love and kindness and you make me feel wonderful inside

I thank you for all that you do for me

I wish there was a way I could make the whole world see

You suffered so dearly because you loved us so

And even though I knew all this I almost let you go

But you found me and for this I will rejoice

For you are the reason I make a joyful noise

Thank you for your love and your tenderness

I will always love you and for this I'm always blessed

 

 

I wrote this for Jesus because I love him.

Hi sweets, This hub has me sobbing. My heart is so thankful for his tender mercy and grace. I pray many can see this poem Tracy. So many young are lost. My friend Christ has put you here for a reason. I am so grateful for your friendship. Thank you Lord we have crossed paths. I have big tears. Some are from his forgiveness daily of my transgressions others for the hurting and lost. There are many.

May you reach and continue touching many hearts by the spirit in you friend. My love, In his name sis.

Thank you for your edifying words on my hubs, you are a gem.
