The poem I wrote in 2011!!

 Hi Christian damsels!

I came across this poem from long ago stored in my email, and thought I'd share it with you.

I really don't consider myself to be much of a poet, but I wrote it and today I'm sharing it with you!

I hope you're blessed and encouraged in some way by it!

Title: I Remember the Day When I Gave Up

I remember the day when I gave up.
I remember walking and deciding it was the last day I was walking.
I was always walking
And I was tired of begging people for rides.

I remember the day when I gave up.
I remember thinking that this was the last time I was going to stretch myself to the limit;
The last time I was going to make a fool of myself.
Nobody else did it like that anyway-why should I?Silly girl!

I remember the day when I gave up.
I remember saying to myself, "Why bother?Don't you see it can happen without you?"
There was nowhere lower to go-
I had reached rock bottom!

I remember the day when I gave up.
I remember that I did not even cry-
I had just made up my mind that this was it.This was the end of the road, and tears were not needed-
They could neither take me backward nor forward.

I remember the day when I gave up.
I remember it because it has passed,
And apparently, One stronger and brighter than I took me farther than where I had wanted to stop.
On the day when I gave up, He did not give up, and He has given me more days than I thought I would have.

So that's it!

See you in the next post 😄
