I could feel the heat of opposition
resting upon the back of my neck.
The sound of my heartbeat, echoing

and echoing,
through the wooded caverns
of each hollow choice.

But in my mind,
I could have lost myself and
I could have died a thousand deaths
each one more painful than the last.

But, the thought
of never having you in my life
would leave me living
without a reason to live.

You came to my rescue
and you saved me, Jesus.
I will always choose life.
For, you are life itself.

  1. This is so beautiful. I can relate to those words about not having Jesus… Yes, even a bit of distance becomes painful. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much. 🙂 Each day, I grow more and more grateful for all that Jesus has done in my life. I’m sure many others can also attest to this.

      So, as He continues to give us life, we must continue to draw even closer to Him.
