Here are some poems written by a friend of mine, I was so moved by them and by the evidences of grace that these potrayed in her young life! She has been a great friend, and though she is younger she has often set the example for me and others. Her willingness to listen to encourage and her strength to ask for forgivness has affected me greatly! I am sure that she will grow in biblical feminity that will show the world of God's grace!! Thank you so much Anna!!

You love me though I’m nothing

Why are you still here by me? Don’t you remember what I did? I want to hide myself from you, but it’s here that I realize it, I don’t deserve you. You love me though I am nothing, you see me as a jewel. You make me feel so special again.

But you still love me, you don’t send me away. I won’t push you away, anymore. So I’ll stop trying to act, like I can do it on my own. I’ll be all I can be, and I’ll try to keep you in the center of my life. I did things that I knew that were wrong.

You show me that life’s worth living, and I should live while I can. So though I’m less than nothing, you are so giving. You made me all that I am; you made me an heir of your glorious Lamb. You’ve swept me away, from were I lay in my sin.

I used to think I could do it on my own, and I saw I haven’t grown. You showed me just what I am, that I’m like a grain of sand. You brought me into the light, out from the night. My life’s been full of traps and snares, and now I turn to you who cares.

So if the world falls all around me, I’ll turn to you who is faithful, and you who is strong. When I feel like there is no where I can go, I’ll run to you who will hold me. I once thought I was on my own, but now I know you’ve been there all along.

So now you have my heart, and you’ve loved me from the very start. So you’ll lead me through this place, to look upon your face. You’ll keep me warm in this cold; you’ll love me ‘till I’m old. You’ll keep me ‘till the day I die, and I look into your eyes.

I am yours and you are mine, until the end of time. I pray I will be a light, and lead many from the night. Help me to grow toward you still more, for you’re the one I’m living for. Thank you for loving me first, I know I am the very worst. I love you.

In your arms forever

The night is finally over and gone. I once thought this night would last for so long. I used be stuck in the night, until you brought me to the light. I feel the sunlight on my face. Only you have brought me through this place.

I’m so glad you’re in my life. You gave me hope I never hoped for. You gave me a reason to live. I’m thankful for everything you give. These thoughts of you and how you changed my life, they consume me. Without you, where would I be?

I love you; my heart is yours, only yours. I long to give you all of me, all of me, my everything. I know I could never repay you, you gave everything to me. Without you where would I be?

You loved me, even when I pushed you away. You ran after me, and brought me back to the day. So this time I’ll stay with you, and this time, I can make it through.

Even if people leave me alone, I look to you and I feel hope again. Sometimes I get too distracted, letting this world push you farther away. I won’t ever feel empty again, so come and take me away. Sweep me off my feet, set me on your knee, please come and take me away.

I love you; my heart is yours, only yours. I long to give you all of me, all of me, my everything. I know I could never repay you, you gave everything to me. Without you where would I be?

So I’m staying here forever, in your arms forever. So I’ll trust in you, in your love forever. I can’t wait to get to your place, to look in your eyes, face to face. I will love you forever, praise you forever. Thank you for loving me.

need you’re help

I promised myself that I wouldn’t fall, but I broke it, ‘Cuz here I fall. I told myself that I can stand, but I lied, ‘Cuz I’m not that grand. I need someone to hold me up. Is there someone I can trust?

I’ve tried to do it on my own, but I’ve shrunk instead of grown. I’ve turned away a thousand times, and I said a thousand lines. I need to be led through the night, to be led into the light.

What if there’s a hope, I never dreamed of hoping for? What if I jumped? And just closed my eyes? What if the arms that catch me, catch me by surprise?

All the pain knocks me to the ground, where I give up, and tears roll down. I cry all the tears that I can cry, until my eyes have gone dry. I can’t hold on anymore, so I fall down to the floor.

The pain is now coming. I can’t keep on running. I’m weak, but you are strong, I’m meek, but you are not. I’m just hoping, the sun will rise into a new day.

What if there’s a hope, I never dreamed of hoping for? What if I jumped? And just closed my eyes? What if the arms that catch me, catch me by surprise?

I’m not looking down, cuz it’s a long way. I’ll just turn around, and run your way. Well the sun has gone down, and I can’t see the light. But I know I’ll be found, and I’ll escape the night.

And now I know, you’re in control, and I can’t make it on my own.

So I’ll stay, I’m where I’m meant to be. It will go you’re way, now that I can see.

What if there’s a hope, I never dreamed of hoping for? What if I jumped? And just closed my eyes? What if the arms that

catch me, catch me by surprise?

these poems were written by Anna Efthimiou one of the coolest girls ever!

This morning I did a study on 1 Corinthians 13... this was something I wrote afterwards.

There is a love that never ends
A love that has always been
From the beginning of days
And throughout eternity’s reign
A love that gives me hope in trials
A love that gives me strength for extra miles
This love given away to me
This love that is absolutely free
A love that over flows in my soul
I could not resist its irresistible pull
My feet will stand firm in pain
And I will run to spread the news of my gain
For what I recieved, so can you
And I would rather have more hear of it then few
To everyone I call
For Christ died for us all
So let me tell you of this love that never ends
Of this love that always will be and has always been.

I believe Anna and I will be setting up another blog for our poems... we will update you once we get that set up ;-)

Peace out!

A complete sinner in need of a Complete Savior!
