A chasm is a dark and ugly empty place.
Desolate, angry and cold; devoid of face.
I know this because I once felt that way.
Dejected and lost; I couldn’t even pray.
Had I not decided to live out my life right;
Perdition and hell were my future plight.
Couldn’t endure to ponder hell and death.
Dwelling on those things left me bereft.
I deplored the sins of my sordid dark life.
I had to change things and make it right.
Pain and loss had put a hard edge on me.
Sin had blinded me so I could not see.
From my youth I knew of God fervent love.
I knew of Jesus His Son, sent from above.
I recalled the reason and the way Jesus died.
As a child when I heard the story, I often cried.
Compassion and everlasting unconditional love;
Was Jesus Christ sent here to us from above.
My mama prayed for my salvation many years.
Buckets couldn’t have held all her tears.
Many thing in this life I had done wrong.
I thought I had been in sin far too long.
Excuses, oh yes, I created very many.
I knew my Lord wouldn’t stand for any.
For many years I sinned, lingering in the abyss.
No light, only darkness…one sin-filled mess.
One day I ran headfirst into a huge stone wall.
I attempted to climb it; each time I’d fall.
Bruised and bleeding, I started to cry.
Each time I got up, I asked God, “Why”?
In truth I knew, why things were so bad.
I ignored the teachings of God that I had.
This torture went on for many long years.
My constant companion, many salty tears.
My spirit was broken because of my sin.
Death and damnation was almost my end.
Then came a day, at the end of my rope.
My life void of peace and absent of hope.
With tears in my eyes, I opened God’s Word.
I read some of the stories I had often heard.
I read of God’s promise of eternal life.
Stories of relief from pain and strife.
God said that His Word would not pass away.
I saw the light of Jesus that blessed day.
The words that I read in that holiest of books;
Reminded me that it was to Jesus I must look.
Jesus, the Christ was what my life really needed.
Down on my knees, I humbly dropped and I pleaded.
Help me dear Lord, I am a sinner.
With you I know I’ll be a winner.
I’m sorry Lord, I’ve been so wrong.
Forgive me for being wrong so long.
Clean me up Lord and I shall serve you.
Bless me Lord, though I don’t deserve you.
I know that you love me; can’t figure why.
Even out in the world, I felt you nearby.
For many things, I’ll praise your name.
For life and strength and joys through pain.
Stress and trouble will surely come my way.
I’ll walk with you Lord; I’ll watch while I pray.
The Evil One still tries to throw me a curve.
I quickly rebuke him with ONE holy word.
JESUS is the name, I boldly communicate.
That is the ONE name, the enemy hates.
Darkness and cold no longer live in my space.
My world is brightened by Christ’s holy face.
I walk with Him through storms and fair weather.
No matter the endeavor, Christ and I do it together.
God’s grace is Jesus; He is unadulterated love.
He transformed me with his mercies from above
If your world is dark and desolate to the core;
Seek Jesus’ light and experience…NO CHASM NO MORE.
