His light in my darkness (Poem by Cherie Coetzee vd Merwe)

I am worthy,
I am strong,
Like the leaves singing their song,
branches growing up to the sky,
where they dance in your true light,
I am up there resting and holding You,
as Your love makes me fly.

Up there with You I am free,
You have shown Me,
when I fell to my knees,
Only You can give me breath to live,
for Your Name is my Salvation,
my heart,
my bread.

Nothing matters,
without Your hands holding me up,
so that I can stand,
and share with others what I have seen,
that You saved me my Lord,
my King.

The darkness of the enemy had pulled me down, but that was when I realized,
I was wearing a Crown.

Even when I could not anymore,
and I should have fallen,
You catched me and showed me,
the blessings in all my pain and sorrow, because that feeling,
made me step closer then I’ve ever been,
to understanding I am nothing,
if I don’t have You within.

So I say again I am worthy,
and I am strong,
I am made in your image,
and No enemy can make that fact wrong.
I am guilty in listening to fear,
but even then , you healed me, held me
and wisperd in my ear.

So I Thank you for all the good and the bad, because in the bad,
you’ve made it possible for me to see,
how my branches will grow,
my leaves will sing,
and I will move closer and closer,
to your heart,
to my king of kings.
