(Here is my first poem written
the day 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.
John 5:24

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.
