Poem Thanking God for What He's Done

Hi, this is a poem I wrote while I was in a Christian rehabilitation centre,.I was a heroin user for 11 years, and I couldn't find away out off that crazy mad lifestyle. My life was not worth living; I needed help fast. Heroin really took over my life; I lost everyone I cared about. I lived my life for my next fix. I'm now free from drug addiction and I'm working with girls with drug problems. I just wanted to thank Jesus for saving my life. I know I should be dead with my old lifestyle.

My Protector

© Julie Hird

Published on November 2010

You are my protector
You are my strength
You are my light in my darkness, and my friend till the very end

You do not judge me
You never let me down
When I fall, you reach out your hand, and you lift me up to higher ground

You've opened my heart
and taught me to love once more
When I cry, I know you have broken through
Because all my tears are for you
You have made me, made me feel, and made me care
for your salvation has brought me here

I just want to say thank you for what you've done, because I know there is still more to come
What more do I need, for I have you
You are my protector
and I love you.

This poem touched me because I was also saved by Jesus from a life of drugs and it reminded me of everything I'm so grateful for. Life is short and I threw away so many years running away from myself. Now I'm embarrassed by my life and I love every minute I'm sober. It's a gift from God to be able to live in the moment and love yourself enough to say no more drugs. I hope that everyone can come to the same conclusion and ask God for help, he is there for us at every moment, he was there for me and he will be there for you. All you have to do is have faith in him. When I finally got down on my knees and asked God for his help he blessed me. I was addicted for 27yrs to heroin and cocaine. I lost everything, my family, my freedom, I went to jail and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, it's sad to say but true. God captured me. If you need help kneel before God and ask and he will answer your prayers, I have my life back now, I'm so happy and fulfilled there is no drug that ever gave me that peace.
