TRIUMPHANT

 
            TRIUMPHANT, THROUGH THE GATE SHE CAME
            IN A BURST OF BRILLIANT HEAVENLY LIGHT
            WITH OUTSTRETCHED ARMS HE EMBRACED HER
            ANGELIC SINGING GREETED HER THAT NIGHT

            HER EARTHLY BATTLES HAD BEEN LONG AND HARD
            AND SATAN HAD TRIED HIS BEST TO DESTROY
            IF IT HADN’T BEEN FOR HER CHURCH AND PASTOR
            IN HER LIFE THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO JOY

            IN DESPERATION, ONE SUNDAY, SHE HAD GONE
            TO THE CHURCH IN THE WOODS THAT DAY
            HOPING THAT SOMEONE WOULD SEE HER PLIGHT
            TAKE HER HANDS INTO THEIRS AND PRAY

            SHE WAS WARMLY GREETED AND TOOK A SEAT
            NOT KNOWING WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT
            THE PASTOR TOOK HIS PLACE OF AUTHORITY
            OPENED HIS BIBLE AND READ FROM THE TEXT

            “IN OUR LORD JESUS YOU ARE A NEW CREATION”
            “HIS WORD PROCLAIMS THAT YOU ARE KINGS”
            “HIS PROMISES ARE YOURS TO CLAIM, RECEIVE”
            “SALVATION, HEALING, PROSPERITY, EVERYTHING”

            SHE SAT QUIETLY, SPELLBOUND AND LISTENED
            HEARD REVELATIONS SHE’D NEVER HEARD BEFORE
            COULD THIS BE THE ANSWER TO HER PROBLEMS?
            IF SO, SHE WANTED TO KNOW SO MUCH MORE

            “ALL OF GOD’S PROMISES CAN BE YOURS”
            “BUT YOU MUST ACCEPT CHRIST AND BELIEVE”
            “JUST TAKE HIM INTO YOUR HEART TODAY”
            “BY FAITH HIS PROMISES YOU WILL RECEIVE”

            “CAN IT REALLY BE THAT SIMPLE,” SHE THOUGHT
            “IF SO, THEN WHAT CAN I POSSIBLY LOSE?”
            “INSTEAD OF STRUGGLING THROUGHOUT THIS LIFE
            THERE’S A MUCH BETTER PATH I CAN CHOOSE”

            THAT MORNING HER LIFE ABRUPTLY CHANGED
            AS SHE RECEIVED CHRIST INTO HER HEART
            A TRANSFORMATION IN HER TOOK PLACE
            FROM HER OLD LIFE DID SHE HAPPILY DEPART



            EVERYTIME THE CHURCH DOORS WERE OPEN
            SHE WAS THERE FAITHFULLY, EAGER TO LEARN
            SHE ABSORBED SCRIPTURE LIKE A SPONGE
            AS SHE LEARNED WHERE IN THE BIBLE TO TURN

            HER TIME ON EARTH ONE DAY FINALLY ENDED
            NOT BY ILLNESS, GOD HAD CALLED HER HOME
            AND IF IT HADN’T BEEN FOR HER SUNDAY VISIT
            AN ETERNITY IN HELL SHE WOULD HAVE ROAMED

            NOW IF IT HADN’T BEEN FOR THAT CHURCH
            THE PROMISES OF GOD THAT ARE TAUGHT THERE
            THE DIVINE CALLING ON THE PASTOR’S LIFE
            AND HIS LOVE FOR GOD’S WORD TO SHARE

            A SOUL WOULD HAVE CONTINUED LIVING DEFEATED
            NOT HAVING A CLUE WHAT SHE COULD BE
            THROUGH EXHORTATION, TEACHING AND LOVE
            SHE BECAME ROYALTY FOR ALL OF US TO SEE
