I guess the realization of this (above truth) was what hit me when I wrote this (below piece), at a time when I was at a low place, had made mistakes, taken some wrong turns, and badly wanted (& needed) a change…
Forgiveness… I guess You would never be needed if I never made mistakes.
Mistakes… If I could undo you, I would. You make me imperfect.
Imperfect… I guess without being you, I’d never hurt nor get someone hurt.
Hurt… You’ve seemed to be very much around me for long, you’ve choked Trust.
Trust… I thought I knew you, thought I had you, but looks like we just met, I need you to share Truth.
Truth… They don’t really know you in my life, but they think they do, I need to share you, but shame.
Shame… You make me withhold Truth and blind me from the Light.
Light… You were commanded to come out of me, because indeed I was in darkness.
Darkness… You’ve shown me no other way, with you I’m lost and need Salvation.
Salvation… I accept you for real, I know NOW that you were only made available by Grace.
Grace… I’ve always needed you, yet it seems I’ve always abused you, and truly I’m sorry.
Sorry… Is what I am for who I used to be. I wasn’t acting, I was broken. I needed healing.
Healing… I thought those I hurt needed you, but it turns out I needed you the most. I needed you so I could move on and go on with Change.
Change… Not known you for too long, but I’m glad I found you, you made me better.
Better… When I look at myself and look at the past, You’re all I can really be. Pity, I can’t be Perfect, although I don’t exactly need to be.
Better, As long as I’m ready to CHANGE, as long as I’m SORRY and as long as there’s TRUTH… I will get you. No! I will become you, EVERYDAY of my life: BETTER!!!
