Coming Alive--A Poem

Updated on February 14, 2013

Sometimes to find change in yourself requires searching outside of yourself for the answer. Whether you're feeling lost, depressed, forgotten, or just simply needing to change, turning to God could be the answer you're looking for.

I wrote this poem sometime ago in college when I was going through a rough spot, drawing strength from God is what brought me through. He makes me who I am and gives me the strength and life to live fully alive.


Silently crying,

Falling to my knees.

Slowly dying,

To the old me.

I shiver and shake,

How long is this going to take?

Ever changing,

Always rearranging.

Then I hear Your voice,

Just barely a whisper above all the noise.

It draws me to You,

And I feel Your arms holding me close.

Telling me all the plans You have,

But I need to let go, to trust, to stand;

In Your mercy, love, and grace.

To feel the need for Your embrace.

So here I now stand,

Reaching for His hand.

Together we go

Making the jump into the unknown.

Christ is now my strength, my solid rock,

For what I've known has long since been forgot.

My strength He will forever be,

For without Him I wouldn't be me.
