PostSubject: Written in 1994...decades before consciously knowing of being saved or even what it meant or asking to be.    Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:24 am

I breathe not
less you breathe within me
I see beyond seeing
for my sight belongs to Thee
I feel without touching
that which is more than i may grasp
I walk in circles...
I walk in darkness...
Without Your love
To light my path


(makes me wonder if one can be saved w/o knowing they've been saved? All things are possible with a sovereign God. Why else would anyone even write such a thing while still oblivious to truth and mystery...jus' sayin'?)
Being such as i was at the time i wrote this, it made absolutely no sense to me at the time, just a lovely thought? A homage to someone i did not truly believe even existed. But yet i thought..."how beautiful?, Maybe i should share this?" and i was forced to ask myself "why the tears, why the pain, what was i feeling?"
I know now...but it's been a very long journey:)
One thing i did learn for certain was: One does not necessarily need to understand everything read or written immediately...but like tea, the longer it steeps the more potent the flavor. I would often get frustrated with reading my Bible and put it down because i could not understand it. One day i resolved to read whether i understood or not and grew in faith and belief as a result of that decision. The understanding was not in my time but in His perfect time, much became clearer:)
