A Letter to My Shepherd

by A Taste of Caramel

I used to praise God's name with my mouth, but never my actions.
Condemn Satan with words, but in my heart he was my distraction.
Deep down I chose him as Lord but didn't even know it.
Was never working for the Lord because my actions never showed it.
I put God to the side while I played dangerously with the Devil,
and he led me to believe that I could never get back with God, that I was on another level.
But playing deadly games with Satan left an emptiness in my soul,
a void only my Lord could fill, I needed to get back into his fold.
After all, what had Satan ever done for me?
He didn't give his only begotten son so that I could be free.
He never forgave me for any wrong that I had done.
That was work from my creator, tears cascaded down my face 
as I heard him whisper, "Child you must come."
Satan grabbed me and told me, "With all the sins you've done, 
you'll never get into heaven!"
But the Lord began to carry me while whispering, 
"Yes you can, my child, but it is me you must reverend."
Lord when I was blind, you allowed me to see.
Thank you for hindering the wolf so I could be a worthy sheep.
Thank you for giving your only begotten son, so that I could be free.
Thank you for being my devoted shepherd who will always watch over me.
