As I sat in the service the pastor asked a question
To which I had barely replied – lack of communication
My neighbour insisted on repeating the interrogation
Not to answer was my intention
As I looked her way, I received revelation.
Words came pouring out like my brain hadn’t made the connection.
Long and short, I gave my life to God that day with dedication
But I had no idea about direction.
What did it mean to be saved, would I be faced with a lot of restriction?
The friends I had, the boy I loved, were my addiction
The thought of new Christians left me filled with affliction
Once I did meet them, I couldn’t believe my reaction
Completely like me, filled with a love of Christ – I felt the benediction
Even enjoyed the same jokes, I am reminiscing
My fear was really about facing the conviction.
Once I did, I was set free from this condition
Not only had God saved me from the wrong mission
He filled my life with love and affection
Friends I never knew I could have, was compensation
But the biggest gift of all was salvation.
