Just the Highlights

I was six
Having laughs at church school,
My grandma took me every Sunday;
Back then I thought it was cool


I was eight
Going through a divorce,
Hoping for someone, anyone;
To make my life better, because it was getting worse


I was twelve
Being bullied, playing the fool,
Wanting to end my life;
So I wouldn’t have to return to school


I was seventeen
Doing everything I was big and bad enough to do,
Playing “chicken” on a dark country road;
Giving no thought at all to You


I was nineteen
In college and still making mistakes,
I found out the love of my life was an atheist;
The ground beneath me began to shake


I searched for You at twenty
Wanting desperately to see your face,
I had run out of options;
Having looked all over the place


You showed up at service one Sunday
The day I decided to come too,
When the preacher called, I walked to the altar;
Surrendering my life to You


The journey since then has been no picnic
It has been filled with times of pain,
But, I continue to hold on;
For in Christ, there is still much to gain


I have had to deal with past issues
Haunting me through the years,
You saved my marriage and my life, Lord;
Teaching me to let go of my fear


Now I’m thirty-four
I talk to you Lord every day,
Expressing all of my hopes and dreams;
Waiting to hear what you have to say


I see something new all the time
Sitting at Your feet,
Teaching me to unlock my gift;
Discovering my writer’s “voice” has been so sweet!


What does my future hold dear Lord?
Only you would know,
Keep on showing me the way;
I’ll follow You wherever you go.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
