<b>B</b>roken, I realize I cannot make it go away—<i>where do I begin?</i>
<b>C</b>rying out to the sky from the terrible depths of my shattered soul:
<b>D</b>oes <i>anyone</i> care? Is there <i>anyone</i> there? <i>Can You make me whole?</i>
<b><i>E</b>verlasting Father</i> answers me with an idea whispered in my mind:
<b><i>F</b>ind a copy of My Word, the Truth you seek now is there inside.</i>
<b>G</b>rabbing my grandmother’s old Holy Bible, I flipped it open:
<b><i>H</b>umble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand,</i> [1 Peter 5:6 NIV]
<b>I</b> weep as I read the rest, <i>…that he may lift you up in due time.</i>
<b>J</b>ust then I recall my grandmother’s voice, soft and sublime:
"<b>K</b>eep the Word of God near and dear to your heart, my child;
"<b>L</b>ove everyone, and refuse the lies of the world which defile."
<b>M</b>emories of grandmother causes another wave of weeping;
"<b>N</b>ana, I miss you so much…" I say as I remember her preaching:
<b>O</b>ver and over she sung and told me, "Jesus loves me, this I know…"
<b><i>P</b>erfect love drives out fear</i> "…for The Bible tells me so. " [1 John 4:18]
<b>Q</b>uaking quietly in God's presence, humbled by His endless love;
<b>R</b>epenting of past and present sins, I give myself back to God.
<b>S</b>urrendering all to Jesus, I promise to always follow Him;
<b><i>T</b>he Truth</i> has set me free indeed: <i>I am no longer condemned.</i>
<b>U</b>nleashed now from the chains of sin which held me back:
<b>V</b>ictorious, I rise up, refilled with the Holy Spirit, and <i>stand</i>.
<b>W</b>orshipping <i>the Lord; He is good and His love endures forever;</i> [Psalm 100:5]
e<b>X</b>alting my Wonderful Jesus because He makes my life better. [Isaiah 9:6]
<b>Y</b>earning now to serve Him all rest of the days of my life;
<b>Z</b>ealously teaching His Truth--the eternal <i>Word to the wise.</i>
