He Left Me Drowning

I performed this article as spoken words in a music concert yesterday and I thought to share it with you.

His innocence swept me off my feet.
His handsome face took my breath away.

We sway and dine in the hall of righteousness.
His name is "Jesus"

He asked me out that very day
And yes I answered so firmly!
Wouldn't say I was hundred percent sure
But I knew I had to fill up the space deep down, The space that nothing else could filll.
So I answered and said "Yes I receive Jesus as my Lord and personal saviour"....that was all that I needed to do.

He took me into his blossom;
Wrapped me with the Red Blanket of His Blood,
Mended my broken heart.
Oh yes, He healed my wounds and took away my pain-
Took away my sickness with his stripe of affection.
He kissed me with righteousness and embraced me with Grace
My Ex was hurt....
Oh yes, The Devil was hurt;
Because it pained him so much that I've found true love in Christ Jesus.

The other day we went to swim in the pool of life.
It was fun cause we were both alone.
I didn't know how to swim-He was teaching me
And then I began to drown
I was struggling in the deep blue sea
I was dying 
No one could see me drowning-Just him
But I couldn't see him any longer

I came to this pool with him, Where has he gone to?
He was with me few moments back, Where has he dissapeared to.
I failed to see him, cause I lost my mind to the fear of death.
But he was there the whole time
Wanted to see How much trust we have in this relationship.
Poor me...I didn't know.
I was drowning away in the presence of My love, My saviour. If only I knew that the key to my life was just to believe.
I swear, i would have taken it!

At the edge of death I began to blame circumstances 
Felt stupid for falling in love.
I forgot that he loved me first.
I forgot that he has been the only donor to this relationship. 
Assisted my finances, education, marriage, and all that concerns me.

In the face of the deep water, I struggled hard to remember his word. The ones he taught me a long time ago.
"Tho I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil"
"He that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty"
"Christ in me, my hope of glory"
"For the Lord is my Keeper the Lord is my shield"
"He has given unto thee all things that pertains unto life and godliness"
"To him who is able to do imaginably more, than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within"
"All of my help comes from above"

I realized that I had to reverence my love, my God, My Maker
For "who he is" at all times
Not just in the good times.
But all times
Even in the deep blue sea of life where I find my self drowning.
I had to praise him
So with my last breath I screamed in humble sincerity.

"Lord Jesus...You are worthy to be praise"
Then I felt the hand of my First Love pull me out of the waters, gave me a kiss of righteousness and whispered "I was here the whole time"
