Looking Back - Poem by Bob Gotti

As I look back upon my life, through all the toil, pain and strife,
Hard times were sprinkled still, with a joy of being in God’s will.
Joy that helped me be strong, when all seemed to be so wrong,
With a peace in the dark of day, as He stood by me all the way.

Even in the darkest of night, the Spirit let me know all was right,
Not because of what I knew, but, because He’d see me through.
I’ve seen moves by God’s hand, in ways I could not understand,
Moving through this life for me, in ways that I could not foresee.

However, there was a time, when Christ the Savior was not mine,
Though religious, not knowing Him, I was but a sinner lost in sin.
And Christ was only my judge, a thought that I’d only begrudge,
As I lived my life as I saw fit, for the Truths of God I did not get.

But then He was patient with me, guiding me so that I could see,
The need for God within my life, through the witness of my wife.
Not only did He help me see, but He blessed my life abundantly,
And through my Savior Jesus Christ, I’ve been given Eternal Life.

He wants to do for you the same, if you’ll call on the Only Name,
Given to men for all to be saved, no matter how old or depraved,
And since every knee shall bow, why not call upon Him right now,
Confess the name of Jesus Christ, who shall give to you new life.
