Through the Ashes

I used to think that hope and love were crutches for the weak
That victory was for the strong, surrender for the meek
I cried myself to sleep with bitter tears every night
Each day brought yet another trial; another war to fight

In my life’s story sinful anger won the leading role
Defiant unforgiveness had wreaked havoc on my soul
I locked myself behind the bars of envy, pride and hate
I threw away the key in spite; my heart sealed its own fate

I didn’t think that anyone could love someone like me
I buried all my pain alive so nobody would see
My bruised and battered heart was slowly breaking day by day
It seemed I’d lost the game before I even chose to play

But then you came along and proved me wrong
Your Truth became my Life, my Strength; my Song
Your Faithful Mercy gently took my hand
Your Grace sustained me when couldn’t stand

You proved to me the Victory was mine
You placed in me Your Love and made me shine
You healed my pain and You restored my sight
You brought me through the ashes into Light

Yes, You brought me through the ashes into Light.

Thank You, Jesus

  1. I just came across your website and wanted to tell that I have really enjoyed reading your opinions. In any case I’ll be coming back and I hope you post again soon.

  2. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂

    • Aww thanks Frankie!!! 🙂 Actually, yes I have thought about making this into a song, but somebody would have to write the melody for me *ahem* ❤ xoxo

  3. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi dakkapellen, no, it’s not your fault~ I transferred my blog domain and the pictures didn’t come with me 😦 so I have to individually reload all of them and I haven’t had a chance yet. Thanks for visiting! 🙂 Be blessed!

  4. What a beatiful poem, what a beatiful young lady you are, Natasha! I am so blessed to know you!! This poem will make an amazing song… I was already humming the melody…while reading it…
    Love you!!
