Alive

I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!
Revelation 1:18

I am ... alone
weary
disconnected
weak
broken.

I feel ... turmoil
pain
loss
grief
sorrow
anger
resentment
doubt.

I have ... questions..

I lack ... patience...

Through Christ I have ... wisdom
trust
humility
strength.

Through Christ's faithfulness I am ... safe
protected
redeemed
reconciled
ALIVE!

I love this poem.

Isn't it amazing how we can turn all our troubles and failings over to Him and He turns them all into grace.
God Bless.
By the way I would be happy to add your lovely blog to my blogroll:0)

This seems to me as your shout of reconciliation exactly with yourself through Christ. And clearly...
I LIKED!

I wish Christ felt more real to me at this time. I can relate to this poem. Faith, I know, isn't a feeling, but a knowledge, a trust--nevertheless, sometimes our emotions and sensations are the only things that can lead us out of the pit called the dark night of the soul.
