A Mercy Nonet

My heart is full to overflowing.
I have so much to thank Him for.
I felt alone and afraid.
I was lost in darkness.
But God saw me there.
With great mercy
Rescued me
Showed me
Love.

The song I am sharing today brings back memories of my teen years. I wanted to know God, but I also wanted to fit in with my friends. I remember some very good friends laughing at me because I read my bible and prayed regularly. I was embarrassed at first. I even stopped for a while so that I could fit in. Eventually, I felt drawn back to the word, but I have to admit that the years when I stopped seeking the Lord, I got caught up in things that were emotionally and physically dangerous. I learned that giving my body to drugs, alcohol and boys only caused pain. I was miserable and found myself in a very dark place.

My change came around the time I had a dream that I died. I knew that I wasn’t ready to die and began to pray for the Lord to help me and He did. I am so thankful that His plan for my life was never far away. Salvation was never beyond my reach. I had to make unpopular decisions. I spent a great deal of time alone and my friends “had fun” without me. My family didn’t understand me, but the more I sought the Lord, the more changes I saw in myself.

I learned to love myself. I learned to love others the right way. I learned how to walk in the Light. When I started walking in the Light, the darkness lost its power.

Romans 5:8
 But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!
