(Here is my first poem written
after I received Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour.
The search was over, but the journey of faith had just begun.)
Some days I feel strong
Yet too many others I know I'm weak
It seems I've searched forever
For these answers that I seek.
That I understand Your Word, I pray
As I read the Bible everyday
Learning to live right is a start
I've let Jesus enter my heart.
Now I'm filled with God's love
And my steps are guided from above
I'm following the voice I hear deep inside
From Life, there's no more need to hide.
I know You're with me - that's a relief
You've kindly taken away all of my grief
Now I've found a new beginning
A pure life, free from sinning.
If I falter, Father, don't let me fall
I know Your strength will conquer all
Lord, help me to pass the upcoming trials
And foil all of Satan's wiles.
I know for my sins, Your Son has died
Please watch over me - stand by my side.
I dedicate all that I am to You
I'll do all that You want me to do
For all Your love that shines through
Lord, I love You!

Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me,
hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation;
but is passed from death unto life.
As you can see, I needed to get grounded in the Word of God and sort out some theology, but that's where I was the day after I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour.
