There’s A Way

Oct 1

Today I’m at a loss for words.  I have spent the afternoon in prison.  No, I didn’t rob a cheesecake factory.  I got to sit in on a seminary class there.  Yes, I did say seminary.   It’s going to take me a few days to digest everything.  I will have lots to share in the coming days, I’m sure.  But one sweet man raised his hand and asked if he could share a poem with us. 


He stood and most eloquently shared his heart in verse.  I asked him for permission to share it with you. 


There’s A Way

 Survival is the fittest

  in this place I dwell.

Away from society,

  at times I want to yell.

Lose my cool? I think not.

  There’s someone much greater

Who can fulfill this empty spot.

  Jesus Christ the comforter

which brings souls to peace,

  It is Him in this dark

and cold place I wholeheartedly seek.

  I turned to His Divine Father

and acknowledged my sinful ways,

  for Christ died for my sins

and it is Him whom I praise,

  Thank God for His grace

and His sweet mercy too.

  Isn’t it good to know

what our Savior was willing to do.

            There’s a way!



I’ve learned a lot today about God’s grace.  If you want to see how lives are being changed, watch this.
