Beware

Beware

Beware

When darkness falls and shadows lurk

Beneath the moonlit sky

When gusty winds turn icy cold

And bats begin to fly

When trees like monsters twist and bend

And hover overhead

When moans and howls pierce your soul

And all the earth seems dead

When your pounding heart nearly bursts

Within your heaving chest

And your blood curdling screams and frightful shrills

Are choking you to death

BEWARE

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to describe myself to you, and these are the words jumping up and down in my heart: I'm just a simple human being living in a complicated, messed-up world. I speak my mind. I love hard. My feelings run deep. When push comes to shove, I stand my ground. Sometimes I push back. Sometimes I walk away. I've surfed the crashing waves of life that threatened to destroy me only to make me stronger. I bear the scars of emotional rape, sadness, and depression. I've walked the golden streets of churches and religion only to be disappointed time and time again. And as a result, it's taken me seventy-five years to get where I'm sitting today; a sinner saved by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. I fell at the cross. I repented of my sins, and Jesus saved and washed me clean. I still fall flat on my face. I still get dirty as a pig in a mudhole. And Jesus still picks me up, dries my tears, forgives me again and again, and continues walking close beside me. No one has ever loved me like that. And no one ever will.
