I AM SO EXCITED - Poem

This poem kind of speaks for itself really... wrote it six months after completing my year of counselling, as I was getting back onto my feet and 'living' again!


I AM SO EXCITED

God, You made me
You fashioned me
And I am slowly grasping
The fact that You love me

You made me in Your image
I could never ask for anymore
And yet You had to watch
Someone come along and break me
While on Sunday’s they praised Your name

You had to watch me
Then build such strong walls
In order not to let this happen again
That even You were hardly ever
Welcomed back inside

AND YET YOU NEVER GAVE UP

And I am so excited
Because now I am slowly
Beginning to glimpse
A tiny bit of the person
That You had planned for me

And looking back to where
I have come from - it almost
Seems possible, with Your help
That You can still use me
In a way that can bring others
To know Your precious love

The visions and the compassion
That You have placed in my heart
Are just beginning to transform
And right before my eyes
You are surely changing me
To become more like You
AND I AM SO EXCITED

THANK YOU LORD
