Galatians 1:15 "But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased."
Today I wanted to share with readers a poem my wife recently composed following one of our evening church services. Below, in her own words, is a description of the poem. I believe readers will find great encouragement in it as I have. The poem's title: "But Then God...".
"Tonight at church a verse in Galatians touched me. Galatians 1:15 comes about after Paul explains his sordid past, but then God in His grace used him. I came home and wrote this poem based on this verse and as a testimony to what God has done in me over the last 40 years."
Once I was nothing more than a corpse filled with decay
I once lived as an orphan, not knowing how to give or receive love
I still fail Him and wonder how He could love me,
I lose track of my words and say things I regret
I worry at night about situations I can’t control
One day I will close my eyes and I will breathe my last breath,
No matter what I do, what I say, or how I feel…
No matter the circumstances in which I must deal…
No matter the failures and mistakes that I make …
No matter what this world throws and the toll that it takes …
If we serve Him in love no matter the places we trod
