Who Am I

Who am I...
I am a person just like you...

I am a person full of negativity
I am a person full of pain
I am a person full of hurts
I am a person that's been let down
I am a person that's been lied to
I am a person that's been abused
I am a person that's known heartache
I am a person that's known fear
I am a person that's known loneliness
I am a person that's known grief

Who am I
I am a person just like you...

That once was a lost soul
That once had a soul full of unhealed holes
That once had many problems and no one to turn to for help
That once knew only depression and fear
That once thought God never wanted anything to do with me
That once thought I could never truly feel anything good
That once didn't want to be close to anyone
That once truly believed I would spend eternity in Hell
That once wanted to take my own life
That once had nothing to live for

Who am I
I am a person just like you but...

Because of Jesus Christ

I am a lost soul
that has been forgiven
I am a soul full of holes
that are being patched up and healed
I am someone with problems
and God to turn to about them
I am someone who still knows fear at times
but God helps me with it
I am someone that knows
God loves me
I am someone who
wants to be close to people
I am someone who
feels more than I want to at times
I am someone who
truly believes I will spend eternity in Heaven
I am someone who
has everything to live for

Why?...
Because of Jesus Christ

I am a blood bought child of the living God
I am forgiven 100 percent
I am cleansed
I am free
I am loved by the One and Only...I AM

You can be someone who "once was" too or...
You can be someone who knows you are loved...

Why?...
Because of Jesus Christ

THE ONE who died to do everything for you
that He did for me...and more

Get to know HIM
