TITLE: Christ took hold of my heart,

I was wretched, corrupt, and unclean.
Yet, somewhere, in the minutest part
Of my heart~hidden, covert and unseen
Was a morsel of hope, a tiny fragment,
Known only to God the creator of us all.
He nurtured this speck and was content,
to wait for me to slowly answer His call.
It happen so quietly I hardly knew,
that my life had been changed ~evermore.
God allows events to become askew
So it is God alone whom we can not ignore.
Take heart my dear friend and be glad,
It’s by far the best thing that's befallen you.
The world takes a view that is so sad,
To man it’s a fate to complicate all you do.
However I will attest it's been the very best,
Life's full of great peace that can never cease.
Don’t take my word, take your own test,
Try Christ~search and seek for your perfect peace
It won’t take long ‘til you become strong,
rooted in God’s holy word as your sin is interred
Life becomes changed as you travel along,
joyfully journeying through God’s perfectly holy word.
