~ It's Time For A Change ~

Caught in a rut,
as days pass away.
Nothing of importance,
nothing to sway.
Routine is the name,
of the game, no play.
Work, eat, sleep,
it's the same all-day.

Noting the smile,
of a friend so dear.
Asked what's the secret,
it was made so clear.
Come with me,
as I attend my church.
You'll see the reason,
to end your search.

Taking a chance,
I decided to go.
To find out the reason,
of my friend's glow.
Entering the church,
a first time for me.
Noticing the altar,
beckoning me to be free.

The service began,
with songs of worship.
Then the sermon,
with talks of sonship.
I questioned the why,
as my heart fell apart.
I cried, no, I wept,
His love hit me sharp.

I now knew in my heart,
what I had missed.
The love, the compassion,
the Jesus I once dismissed.
I accepted His deliverance,
my sins are no more.
His sacrifice on Calvary,
opened a closed door.

Now I can smile,
as I go about my day.
I know Jesus is the answer,
His love, truth, is the way.
I'm overflowing with happiness,
I have a sparkle in my eye.
Jesus is my best friend,
He saved me, now I know why.

"I am come that they might have life,
and that they might have it more abundantly."
John 10:10
