"Saved"

By

AtlantisGirl12

I was alone in my sorrow,

My overwhelming burdens were crushing me.

I had no one to turn to,

I was utterly alone.

.

Though I did not seek Him,

God heard the cry of my heart.

Though I was rejecting Him,

God saw the tear that fell.

.

I had despaired of life,

I thought my end had come.

I didn't think anyone could save me;

I thought my pain had grown too great.

.

But God had not abandoned me;

He refused to leave me to my fate.

He dried the tears that threatened to fall

And grasped that hand that tried to let go.

.

Now my tears are tears of joy

As I contemplate God's great love.

I wonder why He saved me

But I marvel at His grace.


A/N: God is truly amazing, isn't He! I don't understand why He still pursues me, even when I keep turning away from Him. His mercy and love truly know no bounds whatsoever. I hope you enjoyed this poem and that it might have touched you in some small way. I know my poetry skills leave much to be desired (as always, I usually write in free verse; any rhyming or meter is accidental). Please review!
