I've only just begun

Updated on July 16, 2013

I know this is just the beginning

There has been a break through

An eventful journey to the starting line, helped me start brand new.

God's love lit my path and guided my foot steps too

Often times I felt so misunderstood

In my mind, thoughts splashed about like a flood.

Crashing waves attempting to destroy my dreams,

So I pushed through and focused on what God would have me do

Becoming overwhelmed I took a break from all that afflicted me

"Peace; be still"...

I heard these words again and again, they kept coming to me

Relax my mind, body, and soul

Don't worry about what THEY see

Keep your focus on God

This thought became so clear to me

So I let go and what do you know

God was blessing me

I went through the darkness and found his light

I filled my heart with his energy

Some days are better than others even with the enemy planning my defeat;

but it's no way as hard as it used to be...

I never knew what my parents said would become MY reality

But I'm living proof that when you trust in GOD there are so many wonders you'll see

      Thank you again 4wardthinker! I'm glad that I can be an inspiration to you on your journey to become closer with God. I needed lots of inspiration to continue on mine and still need it now! (smile)

      Again, another great poem. Very inspiring! I think I will bookmark this one just as a daily reminder as I grow in my relationship with God and learn to lean on him.
