BEFORE.   
 Before, my heart pounded to the beat of a drum. 
 Happiness was only a house built on sand. 
 Holding grudges was normal. 
 Retreating, and hiding from problems was expected. 
 “Dying for” was a statement I could never match an image to. 
 Life was just life, or in my eyes it was the game of life. 
 In the game of life I was gasping for air. 
 Competition, greed, and power were all that ever entered my mind. 
 Never once did I contemplate a higher power. 
 Now, my heart flutters at the sound of His name. 
 Joyfulness is now the house built on rock. 
 Forgiveness is a gift, that was paid for us. 
 Being vulnerable to the only person who truly understands, is a relief. 
 “Dying for” represents what my savior did for us. 
 The life I live is to be for His glory alone. 
 Joyfulness, grace, forgiveness, and growing closer in my relationship with Him is what always enters my mind. 
 I have a fire burning brightly inside my heart for the one I love, Jesus Christ my savior.
