PostSubject: A moment lost   Fri Jun 21, 2013 5:50 pm

I live...but am I truly alive
and I grow...but am I starting to thrive
I cry...continuing to survive
and I leave...how long before I arrive...





Be warned, you're misinformed about the storm that's on its way
A single, dark moment within a calm, alluring day
Casting shadows, chasing blackbirds, words echo in your mind
Twisted truths existing in the vision of the blind
Lies from the lips of the lost little boy
A decoy is destroying your true inner joy
Sinner...go and sin no more
Close the door on that moment and I will open a new door
You are standing in the hallway of the lost and found
and how you spend today rests on which way you turn around
If you insist on turning to the left you've not left that moment behind
so hear the light...turn to the right...and let grace fill your heart and mind
You diminish what I offer when you dwell on yesterday
Take a deep breath and let the darkness blow away
Close your eyes and breathe my name and I will grant you new release
Let the calm and the peace of my love increase
Let me breathe inside you, for inside your heart I live
How can you forgive others if yourself you won't forgive
I give you salvation, not in part but in whole
yet the trust of my redemption has not enveloped your soul
Ninety-nine percent is the way that it's been
but the one percent you hold allows the world to creep in
A moment can last forever...a moment can last a minute
A moment can change your life if you continue living in it
A moment of silence...a moment to grieve
Won't you take a moment, child...and just believe
I played the flute for you, and you did not dance; I sang a dirge, and you did not mourn
and I knew of this moment of darkness before you were ever even born
for the enemy is strong and he has your vision blurred
and the voices of the demons are the voices that you heard
for they, too, hide in the hallway of the lost and found
seeking that one percent chance that they can silence the sound
The sound of the truth that will never deceive you
I am who I say I am...I AM your Savior...I will not leave you
So write these words I've given you deep in your mind and heart
I forgive you, forgive yourself...live in the moment of a brand new start...



Yet another situation that kind of got out of control
and it was tearing at my heart, mind, body and soul
A moment of life lost to the demons this time
but forever again gained when God wrote me this rhyme...

I've read this several times and i'm sure I will be reading it again.
