A Testimony: You Changed Me

A Testimony: You Changed Me

You changed me, from what I was and what I could have been.  A wretch

would have been a nicety. But you changed me.

From the awful person that I had become.  Allowed me to hear from you.

Lifted me up in the palm of your hand.

You said my name and I knew you knew me, completely.

I cried out to you in pain, asking for forgiveness and you forgave me.

Then did the remarkable thing. Unexpected and unwarranted.

Blessed me.  You blessed me and why?

Made me see your glory — your beauty.

And I …

was forever changed and made whole.

Therefore, no matter where I am

or with whom I be,

You are within me.

I have no fear and no sorrow because

I am different than before I knew you,

Really knew you.

And since knowing you I give you my life.

I am your servant and you are

the Lord God.

And I am

Forever changed.

  1. Jesus! I need Him and this poem today! Thanks for sharing! It’s so hard to remember just how much change He has brought when you are so far removed from who you were, yet still working on who He created you to be!

  2. Another beautiful one. I will take a framed copy of this as well :-).
