I carried the blackness alone
Solitude is peaceful
Unless you hate yourself
Then it is lonely.
But I was not left that way
The Man of Sorrows approached
And we soon commenced to fight
We grappled--I with all my might
Until He touched the hollow of my thigh
Sharp the bittersweet pain!
And now I remember--
A ladder stretched from Earth to sky
A promise giv'n from God on High
"I am with thee, and will keep thee."
But was I willing to be for Him?
"Let me go, for the day breaketh"
I held Him fast and made my choice
My father's God was now my own
"I will not let thee go--
Except thou bless me."
Seeking from Him what I could not earn
Each battle leaves different wounds
And some of them heal over time
A prince with God was born--
But I walk with a limp
Happy Birthday, Jonathan! - Few people in the world enjoy and embrace life as much as our Jonathan. He is a mover and a shaker. Always doing something.....always making something........
