    the most wonderful things in life sometimes
    begin in desolate places
    i know this because i have been in one of those places
    bleak, dark and terribly lonesome
    i felt that i had no where to turn
    no outlet, no way out
    can u relate to being
    in that place
    i couldn’t feel the warmth of the summer sun on my face
    i didn’t try to hear God’s voice speaking love and hope into my soul
    i did not want the comfort and fellowship that those who cherished me offered
    i was lost
    spinning in a whirlwind
    of depression
    & frustration...
    why
    better yet -
    how did i get there
    i can’t remember all the details now
    and really i don’t think that it matters
    so much now...
    what i do know is that now
    my life is different
    i submitted myself to His words
    i let my heart hear the love He speaks
    finding redemption
    finding salvation
    finding peace
    realizing that good can be born
    in the most desolate places
    and changing everything
    that i once thought to be
    true

    from the dark coals diamonds are born
    i've seen lilies sprout among thorns
    and statues erect from ashes
    roses blossoming from concrete grounds and
    green grass growing from dry mounds

    it seems God's pleasure to keep his treasures hidden deep in the earth of mystery
    so that He can see our extreme measures in discovering them within us
    the glory blinds us to sight out of darkness comes the light nightly and diurnal only this glory is eternal..

    praise be to God Creator of earth winds and seas and their rotating cycles of nature
    equal to human life conditions may His people stay on their knees laying before his grace
    from the valley i can see his face....
