Long ago gracious words were spokenThrough a friend’s honesty
And through the sublime work of the Lord;
Things were said
Simple questions were asked
And suddenly a numbing cloud of despair lifted,
Never to return.
The beauty of a new quiet was within
A soft blanket of comforting, soothing peace settled inside,
With little understanding, I stood amazed
In freedom far from my own grasp.
Something good entered my heart and soul
I stood that night in mysterious calm at last;
After battling internal conflicts for years,
Struggles that ebbed and flowed in relationships and circumstances
Pulled and tore me finally into weakened shreds;
It all disappeared
As the Name above every name was revealed
To believe in Him, and then receive faith!
A door to answered prayers opened
And after some months, I took hold fully of the Absolute,
Messiah’s Truth tasted, and seen and heard
Soon to flood throughout my entire being
As the Holy Spirit led a continual Scripture feast
Eating my “daily Bread” became prayerful discipline
Words written from the very mouth of God
The living “Word made flesh”made known to me
One step, one day at a time;
My path into a certain future
Sure hope richly alive in me
The Way of Eternal Life,
The King of Truth now my Shepherd,
My God of trust!
