Jesus, You have made my life
more exciting than a best seller.
The pages run the full gamut of emotion–
from joy to sorrow.
Yet in spite of circumstances,
I have been at peace with You
in every chapter of my life
for You are always there…
to enjoy the good ones with me,
to tape the torn ones together with hope,
to dry the tear-stained ones with encouragement,
to bind together with Your love
those that come unraveled,
and to fill the empty ones
with promises of Your never ending faithfulness.
But the most exciting page of my life
will be the last one,
when we meet face to face.

Just wanted to share one of my favorite poems that I wrote after inviting Jesus into my life. I give Him credit for gifting me with these beautiful words.
This poem appears in the beginning of my book, Double Vision: Seeing God in Everyday Life Through Devotions and Poetry, Published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. This is one of 30 other poems in my book each paired with a devotion on the same topic.
