About the Poem

I wrote this poem one Sunday after church. God had put it in my heart to express the joy that I am now feeling. Before I found God I was so unhappy and lost. I felt I had nothing to live for. Then a friend from work invited me to her church. It took me a while to accept her invitation, but finally I did. I am glad to say that today I am happier than I've ever been and I owe it all to God.

No More Empty Space

I woke up one morning
And realized I was alone
I prayed for God to take me
I wanted to go home.

But God, he did not take me
I had too much to live for
He sent to me an angel
And opened up a door.

I walked through the door
Into a special place
My heart was filled with joy
There was no longer an empty space.

I thank God today
For the angel that he sent
For coming into my heart
For letting me repent.

He is an awesome God
One of great love and power
I'm proud to say today
I'm one of Gods blossoming flowers.
