Many times Iíve nearly fallen off the deep end
But your love saves me
Your grace pulls me back
Away from the cliff
Dealing with my iniquities
Healing my body and soul
You will never allow me to fall
Off the deep end as your love
Never fails because of the nails
That were hammered in for me
Where you placed my sin on the cross
For all to see through you
You paid the ultimate sacrifice
And I am indebted to you forever
I love you Lord Jesus
You will never let me fall
No matter how hard life knocks
You are there to grab me
Hold me close to what is reality
The reality of what you have done
Is not a lie but all truth
Found in your blood and body
As a sacrifice for sins
You were born to save sinners
Like me and the world
Who chooses to believe in You
You are the way to the Father
To eternal life and a new Heaven and Earth
Come quickly Lord Jesus
Save us all from earthly hell
Times have come were suffering
Leads many to the cliff
Where they nearly fall off the deep end
But instead turn to your grace
Healed by your love

I felt the anointing on this lovely and inspring poem of "love and devotion" to the Lord.

Amazingly beautiful, and moving! Thank you for your mesmerizing and powerful poem.

God bless~

Powerful imagery of God's saving grace.

For me, it would have been more readable if your poem would have been divided into stanzas.

This is a lovely article that you wrote. It covers every aspect of emotions from the redeeming qualities that Jesus accepts and the human emotions and experiences that we feel. Your article is fantastic.

One typo I saw close to the bottom was you had were when it should've been where. Also you had this listed as fiction. The devotional such as this is nonfiction. You're a great writer keep it up!

I would like to see some periods. This would tell me a new sentence would start on the next line. Without periods each line could be the start of a sentence. If each sentence is used as the start of a new sentence, some interesting statements are made.

Or a space between sentences or stanzas.

We have to be careful not to grieve the Holy Spirit.

Keep your heart in heaven and your eyes in His word.
