Redemption - Poem by Jacob Courtney


Why am I alive why am I here?
I stand here on the ledge looking
Into the abyss wondering who can
Feel this emptiness resonating
From within. Father what is my
Purpose in this life for I am
Lost disillusioned soul falling
Like a moth to the fire all
Around me. Show me father
Give me a sign cause I am
Truly beginning to question
This path before me. Just as
The insanity began to rise from
Within a voice cut through the
Darkness like a sword removing
All the doubt. It pierced my heart
Breaking into pieces just as glass
Shatters across the floor. All at once
I scream out with joy praising God thanking
Him for breaking me for tearing me down.
Yes Lord I know my path yes Father I have
Fallen but your conviction your love your mercy
Has condemned me yet redeemed me. Thank
You Father for now I'm no longer an empty shell
I'm no longer a lost soul destined for eternal
Death. Now I'm a soul destined for an eternity
At your side an eternity basking in your glory.
Let me worship at your feet let me serve within
Your will and never let us depart ways again,
I love you Father....Amen

- Jacob
