Because I Am Saved

Updated on January 23, 2017
Source

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 the painful memories


I will not dwell on it any longer


Or be afraid


But move on with my life


I will live for what is ahead of me,


Not what happened and 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

      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.

      Oh, how beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing in this awesome poem. I know I had to deal with a lot of unforgiveness in my heart, and when I finally did, He set me free to be who it is He would have me to be. Praise Him. God bless you dear one for writing this thought-provoking and honest piece. The video is awesome as well, along with the beautiful photo of beautiful you! Voted Way Up to the Heavens. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      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!
