Light & Darkness

by James Ralston
(Gainesville, FL)

In this world there are two forces.
The evil force is controlled by Satan.
He tries to tell everybody that the universe was formed by accident.
The devil tells me that every material thing will bring me happiness, and fill the void in my soul.
The devil has put darkness and temptations in my path, and tried to keep me chained to sin.

The best force in this world and in this universe is you Lord Jesus.
You are good.
You have reminded me that all material things are meaningless.
You have lit up my world.
I can finally see the mess I have made of my life.

The devil allowed an angry force to enter my life, because I didn't listen to you Lord Jesus.
The devil told me I was finished, and said that death was the only way out.
The angry force built a wallm around me, keeping people from getting too close.

Lord Jesus you are fighting for me.
Lord you are tearing down my wall.
It brings tears to my eyes just knowing where the devil had me.
Lord I don't want to go back there, and you said I don't have to.

Lord Jesus you are stronger, and becuase of your light,
I can finally see what areas of my life you are building back up
and which areas still need work.

Lord Jesus open my eyes, and allow me to see what you will let me see.
Open my heart and mind so I can understand you word
and keep it buried in my heart.

Lord, I thank you for saving me, and calling me your friend.
Thank you for making me a child of God.
Thank you for breaking my chains, and tearing down my wall.
Thank you for being my guiding light.
Thank you for allowing your Holy Spirit to live in my heart.

Thank you Lord Jesus for all this and much more,
I can't wait to see you face to face.
