I feel so torn between what is right and what is wrong.

Pieces Repaired
I lay shattered, like a priceless broken vase. Irreparable, it seemed. Too much sadness had come my way. Doctors, psychiatrists, friends and family hovered over me. To no avail. I simply could not go on and prayed to die. One day I had a visitor. Silver head bent, eyes filled with care, she sat down by my bed. She never said much. She just held my hand in her strong, gnarled hand, gently rubbing each of my gingers. I began to relax. Tears streamed down this old womanís face as she felt my pain. A silent prayer went up. A current of love flowed between us. As she rose to leave, she placed a small gift-wrapped box near my bed. She spoike with a soft voice, ďMy dear this will help. She softly closed the door behind her as she left. I pulled on the brightly colored ribbon and opened the box. Inside laid a puzzle with no picture to go by the piece were worn form hard use. I began hesitantly then determined, alone, with my own thoughts. Piece by piece God whispered direction, gently untangling and strengthening my lifeís confused, broken chunks and splinters. He healed and soothed wounds as he and I worked hand in heart. Several months passed, both puzzles life and picture, were fitting
together. New joy came to me when I placed the last missing piece and revealed the face of Christ.
As I began to breathe, I closed my eyes. I pictured Jesus standing before me with outstretched arms. As I breathed in through my nose there was a smoke like stream emitting from Jesus that reached my nostrils. The smell was like nothing Iíve ever experienced- I wish I could explain the sweetness that made me tingle all over. I felt a peace made my body that warmed and soothed like a sunrise and flowed through me as a gentle stream. As I breathed out through my mouth I pictured a stream of red bot lava flowing out of me. Each lava rock represented my worries and fears. Jesus standing there is all His glory quenched the hot lava with just a glance. Each time I inhaled the more peace I felt. It was like lying in a big white fluffy cloud totally relaxed fearing nothing, just looking at the beauty of Godís promises. Each time I exhaled; I became lighter until at list I fell into a peaceful rest. Oh, the joy and love that overflowed within me. I could hear music that soothed and massaged my body. When I opened my eyes at last. I saw my life in a different light. I heard a song-Donít worry, be Happy and I gave thanks to my Heavenly Father of being my refuge and fortress. And Philippians 4:13 came to my mind, For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.

When I walk in total darkness, here I cannot see my loved ones. I share a life with Satan. Heíll drag me down straight to hell in the flames of fire . Iíll be forever suffer.



When I am walking in the Light, I walk with the Lord, I fellowship with people who show me how great Godís love can be. To live a life of hope, love for others and learn to live a life without drugs and jail.

Godís love is bountiful and everlasting
Heíll never let you down, He will never
Leave you nor forsake thee!!

God give us choices to make: right or Wrong!
This hand belongs to me. Sometimes this hand reaches for the wrong things in life. Things that Satan uses to choose the wrong things to do, like reach for a bottle to get me a drink. He says it will make me feel good and all the pain will be gone; I believed this at one time.

This hand belongs to me. When this hand reaches for the Bible, :Godís Word of PromisesĒ, I feel at peace with myself, with others. I feel the love of God for He sent His Son here to suffer and die on the cross so that we would be saved and live a life of eternity in Heaven with Him always loved.

The Sunshine because sometimes I am happy and can make people laugh and sometimes I am joyful to be around and can make people feel warm inside.
The DARK SIDE because sometimes I am mad and can be mean to others and that makes me feel dark and gloomy inside and feels like I make others feel that way too!
