To believe

For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. John 3:16

It was a gift given but was refused,

It sat unopened; it felt abused.

God’s love is free, to one and all,

But what good is free, when you know it all?

How can I come, back round again?

What will it take, to make amends?

A clean heart, a new goal,

a humbling part, a willing soul.

Yet when we push our Angels away

God sends them back you see.

For He is sure, that perhaps in a day,

We will be the best we can be.

I offer up these precious things,

I pray the Angels lift their wings.

To go and tell our Lord this day,

That she, His child, is back to stay.

Never again to lose sight,

For Him, she will step into the fight.

For truth and freedom to love all,

Our Father says this is the call.

A quiet calm is inside of me,

But what is it, I am to see?

I wait and listen; I pray to go right,

As I ask our Father, never let me lose sight.

It is His freedom that is my choice.

So now I listen to His Voice. 

I know he holds the unopened gift.

My heart is heavy, but it will lift.

Yes, He tells me, everything will be alright,

He has me in His great Light.    

This is where I want to be,

safe and protected, on my knees.
