Just wanted to share a couple of poems i wrote when i was struggling with my salvation. If anyone is struggling with their salvation i pray this helps you. With love, carey.

"Up from the ashes"

I've fallen so far
I've fallen so deep
I wonder sometimes
when will i wake from this sleep
It's a pit that im in
darkness surrounds
invisible bars
invisible bounds
all that's inside me are terrible sounds
they cry for relief
Please set me free
ashes and ashes
as far as the eye can see
can i be lifted
From this pit of despair
is there even time
For me to be repaired
I heard a voice
It's so soft at first
Im thinking to myself
i must be cursed
i heard other voices
They made me believe
that this pit of despair, is for eternity
But since i heard that soft velvety sound
im starting to see
There might be a way out of these bounds
Ashes and ashes
As far as the eye can see
but now i think
This isn't the  place for me
I take a stand
decide to leave
I check my heart
And know i believe
i open my eyes
Prepare for the worst
hoping against hope
That im really not cursed
I saw a light leading me out of my cave
I followed it praying
That i would be saved
When i came to the edge
of my pit of despair
i was suddenly gripped
By the demon of fear
he whispered so lightly inside my ear
Little girl, you can't leave
Your destined for despair
but i knew it was a lie
Jesus had done the repairs
so with all that i had
I stepped into the light
Knowing inside, everything would be alright
now here i am
Surrounded by this glorious light
worshiping Jesus
My Savior
the risen Christ
Hiding myself from those who migjt see

Please ignore the last line, that's part of my second poem, hate doing this by phone. Oh well, here's the second!!

"My struggle"

Struggling to keep this darkness at bay
Suffercating with this tormenting decay
Isolation seems to be my only key
but there's a destruction
That's entering my soul
And i seem to be loosing control
i don't want you to see me
I can't allow you to know me
if you come close
you'll see the darkness inside
There's to much pain
So much emotion
if i let it out
Im sure to face desolation
How can i put to words what im feeling inside
how can i share this darkness in my life
im a prisoner of my own devices
Suffercating from all my disgusting choices
I want to let go of it all
Be free of all this strife
but if i do, will i find true life
I wish i could see myself through your eyes
I wish i could know
That i was worth the price
When you paid the price on calvary
Did you really and truly
Die for someone like me
Questions of your love plague my mind
maybe the darkness that surrounds me
has made me blind
show me that you love me
Show me that you care
Show me that i won't
Forever live in despair

Words from the heart lyrics from the soul. Thank you so very much for sharing. We cannot always sit on the mountaintop, and we will so often find ourselves in a valley. Praise God that His light pierces through the darkness and guides us onward. God bless you.

A servant of Christ,

1 Tim. 3:
16: And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Thanks for sharing Carey those tender and deep moments.

LOL, how do you do it on the phone? My fingers are so clumsy when texting.


Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty
Looking for that blessed hope,
                            and the glorious appearing of the great God
                                                             and our Saviour Jesus Christ Tit 2:13
