The thorns are nothing to the joy
Of walking with my Savior here…

This is just wonderful. I loved the last stanza. Great job. Beautiful.
My favorite lines:
"To die to self seemed foolishness
When I once stood among the “wise”,
But love has helped me truly see
It’s selfishness that’s full of lies,"

I like your poem! Keep writing and I'll read more :)
I'm all for dieing to self, man. This nation needs to do more of it as a whole. Thank you for voicing this.
I really liked this poem. It should minister to many.
Such meaning and depth here, and much to think about. A wonderful first challenge!
Again I say Wow and marvel at the way God uses us to help each other. He definitely knew I needed these words today and practically shouted at me until I heard Him and read this message God bless.

editing note in 3rd verse should it be them or then?

Again Thank you for obeying God with your inspirational words. God gave them to you as a gift and you chose to share them with the world!
This is outstanding. It gave me tear-filled eyes and goosebumps that God led me here right now when I needed those words.
