Letting Go--Finding The Real Me: A Poem
When you feel like nothing is all you have left, and your world is falling apart; turn to God and be set free. This poem describes the great unfailing love of God and how he can bring us back to who we can be in Him. Without God I would be nothing today. He will show us the beautiful inside us all giving us the reasons to be happy and live in Him.
After a life changing hardship I wrote this poem to describe what I was going through and how God helped me heal and bring me back to happiness. Everyone will go through a hardship at some point in their life. Turning to God was a way for me to heal, and writing is another form of healing for me. By combining the two I end up with this poem.
Falling to my knees.
To the old me.
I shiver and shake,
How long is this going to take?
Then, I hear Your voice,
Just barely a whisper above all the noise.
It draws me to You,
And I feel Your arms drawing 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 out for His hand
Together we go
Making this jump into the unknown
Christ is my strength, my solid rock
For what I have known has long since been forgot
My strength He will forever be
For without Him I wouldn’t be me.
