North Little Roc, Ar.
The angle of death little did I know,
was courting around my front door; but God had other plans for me,
He wanted to take me higher than I ever hoped to be.
Walking around with a big time bomb;
Working and running doing my body irreversible harm.
Tired and weak I said I need some rest;
Little did I know I was facing a test.
God worked a miracle in my life;
When I for hours laid under the knife.
The prayers of the saints did lift me up;
But Jesus sustained me when he drank the bitter cup.
At first couldnít perceive what god had done;
Neither the friendships my life style had won.
I ask the question, God why me;
Iíve tried in my services to be all I should be.
Why not you, the Lord spoke back to me;
Thereís deeper things in this life I want you to see.
I treasure the moments Iíve had with him;
And the spiritual healing from limb to limb.
A time of meditation with revelation too;
Iíve surrender to God and what heíll have me to do.
God not only spared my life twice;
But in my quiet hours gave me joy without price.
God doesnít ever do anything in vain;
Although it might cause us a bundle of pain.
He stops us sometimes dead in our tracks;
To confirm our faith so we wont look back.
I thought I had praised him with all of my might;
But heís brought me to another level after I came through this fight.
Now I have a testimony like never before;
My body bares a miracle I want the world to know.
I Shall forever lift to god my praised;
While striving for perfection and to know all his ways.
Praising the Lord is not hard you know;
And especially when heís given you your life back and so much more.
He is my refuge my Lord and my strength;
Forever shall I praise him with this body he has lent.
