Spiritual Sunday 'Amazing Grace"

Spiritual Sundays are hosted by two awesome people - Charlotte and Ginger. To join in....post and then add your name at http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/

Living on the streets, I was easy prey to every perpetrator of harm. Consumed with shame....and fear.....I couldn't see any hope. All I saw was darkness....It was everywhere....all around me. When I couldn't fight the darkness anymore...something happened - Grace came down and touched me. 

Grace....amazing grace....it changed me....cut through the blackness...bought my freedom....poured out Light...gave me hope...and not just hope...it gave me life....new life....a new start....a fresh start at getting things right.

Grace - it never asked me to  jump through any hoops or make any promises....or give anything back in return. It simply touched me. I didn't know love...I didn't understand it....I only understood how to fight, but Grace taught me Love....I was blind....but because of Grace....now I see....I was lost....but now....am found.
