Sorrowful sadness invades my whole being,
my core is submerged, plunged to the deep.
Absent air with deflated lungs’ attempts futile.
No sound, no sight; lonely, deep, cold ,darkness.
The present, my reality leaves little choice
To die physically focusing on my core doom.
Or die spiritually to self in surrender to my God.
But I don’t trust, can’t trust…the baggage I carry.
Will He accept me with all of my ugly baggage?
As quickly as that thought formed in my mind,
I see in the distance a light rushing toward me.
Like a mighty wind, I am swooped into the light
I find myself breathing again prostrate my knees.
Collapsed in humility and shame, I beg forgiveness.
I lift my teary eyes to the cross in awe as I see Christ.
I rejoice! I’m redeemed by my Holy Savior, Jesus Christ!
