Dear Lord, it’s been so long since I’ve done wrong.
Through thick and thin you’ve made me strong.
Even when I look back at what I thought was bad.
The struggles and pain that tried to make me mad.
Some said things about me that were not true.
Forgive them all for they know not what they do.
I wanted to help them. I knew I had to try.
They turned it around and made me the bad guy.
I stayed right in mind though the biggest ordeal.
My heart stayed true and all my wounds did heal.
When I chose to forgive them my burden was released.
With all that was taken from me I saw my wealth increase.
Now every day I don’t need to try to do right.
Conditioned by love I keep the ball in sight.
Day to day I see the opportunities you place in reach.
You give me the knowledge and wisdom to help me teach.
From all those experiences you have made me a man.
Through the power of faith I know that I can.
So much loving and giving you have placed inside.
You have prepared my heart for the changing tide.
Through my words and my actions you lift me high.
The Holy Spirit is in me, there is no need to cry.
His vibration engulfs me from head to toe.
Armies of angels guide me to where I go.
hi ron! this is such an inspiring poem… so true.
Thanks Leslie, I actually ended up using it as part of the introducton for “The Apostle’s Recipe for Happiness.” I felt that I needed to write something that gave the reader a glimpse of who I am.
I really appreciate your support. Be blessed!
