I couldn’t have done it
I never saw myself that way
That there was a thing I could accomplish
That there was someone I could become
The early days were cloudy
The early days were sad
My heart was full of depression
How was I meant to survive?
How was I meant to make it?
I always sadly thought to myself
That I was not going to get out of the rut I was in
I still remember as clear as now
My days of sickness and turning in bed
So it seemed that hell had come visiting
‘Hope’ was to me like another planet entirely
No gain to me, but just a story
In my darkness I decided
To try something I had never tried
Make something out of nothing
To believe a seemingly foolish tale
Of a man God that had come to die
If he was God, why should he have died?
I thought gods were immortal
Mortal immortal I thought to myself
That God wasn’t so wise I thought
That he had to be killed by His creation
The more and more I thought
The more the story became a fable
Why should I believe the tale of a dead God?
Moreover was he not dead?
I totally stopped reasoning
Until I heard the full story
That this God didn’t stay dead!
After dying for my sins, he rose again
Who does that?
What a greater proof of immortality!
What a story of love!
It began to dawn on me how much love
God gave by sending Jesus
Even in the midst of controversies
And my previous mindset..
I chose to believe
And surrender my life to Him
The one that did such a great feat
For my sake was worthy of my love
A gamble that became the changing decision
My sorrows were lifted
My guilt and shame erased
All for Christ’s sake
My cloudy days became bright skies
My mood lost its swings
My health became stable
My mind became better
And my intellect sharper
I could never imagine
That I became better
My life had a meaning
My gamble became my treasure
Because every thing started to fall in place
After a while I began to understand His grace
That it wasn’t by my works but His grace
It was life transforming
It still is
Now I ask myself how I did it
How did I survive without God?
Because now I can’t do without Him
Its like living again
Yes I know why
Its because I am born again
Now I inspire others
Now am a vessel fit for His use
I now comfort others
With the comfort He comforted me with
Boldly I say old things have passed away
Because I am totally new
I am joyful, happy and satisfied in Him
But Jesus doesn’t want only me
He wants all of us to experience the new life
Because he died for us all
All we have to do is take that step of believing!
This is my story, this is my song
Jesus said unto us “I am the way, the truth and the life no one comes to the father except through me” (John 14:6). Jesus is the only way. Only through Him, we can live the life that brings victory and fulfillment. Accept Jesus today if you haven’t. Take him more seriously if you have him. And watch your story turn around. He did all he did, just for you and me and all for LOVE! Jesus loves you.
