    A gung-ho Christian is what I use to be,
    Learned some Word and thought I was free.
    Didn’t think there was nothing left to do,
    Just being saved, I thought, was enough;
    Coming up from the water,
    I thought I was through.

    I was excited about this brand new way of life.
    Thought it was going to be easy with no worries or strife.
    I had it together or so I believed,
    Didn’t realize in order to reach Heaven I had to read.
    Read His word and live it day by day,
    And work my faith when I pray.

    I became dormant somewhere down the road,
    Picked up some bad habits and was carrying a full load.
    I couldn’t understand what was happening to me,
    I had lost my way and couldn’t see.

    Crying out for help in the depths of my mind,
    Remembering the days when understanding and love is what I wanted to find.

    A gung-ho Christian is what I use to be,
    I learned some Word but I wasn’t free.

    At least the journey was started, now it's time to continue. I like the way you went about expressing this.

    Trials and tribulations never cease even after baptism.

    I can feel that you're at peace with it though...the struggle that is.

    :thanks: for sharing your life's experience with us.
