“Shining Light in the Past”

looking back and realizing
He was there

looking back and seeing
His hand in my life

not out to destroy me
not out to condemn me

God was there

waiting for me to notice
waiting for me to surrender
waiting for me to become love

the enemy steals, kills, and destroys
the Savior saves, redeems, and restores

darkness lured me in
abused me
raped me
persuaded me to pursue
darkness

Light exposed the Truth
about darkness
about hope
about redemption
about life
about Love

God was there
waiting for me
Now I am here
waiting for Him
to lead me
to teach me
to guide me
to show me

what I look like in Light
