The Tree of Life . . . Part 3 ~ and More Inspirational Bible Verses

’twas satan’s plan to watch us rot and laughed as we decayed

It was not something I could foresee or even knew could be for me

I thought all Christians were somehow . . . a slice of nature’s freaks

All so very prim and proper ~ not what I was used to having seen

Their lives all squeaky clean

oh, no!

That is so, so not for me!

. . . Or so I thought ~

I wanted life to be full of love and fun!

To be just like the world who drank, and smoked and lived to party on

That’s what I longed to be

thinking that life of fun would somehow set me free

Oh, how wrong was I . . .

That I now so clearly see

It was a painful path for me to take

as I was led astray

believing lies the devil spake

who joyed to see me flee

a life of comfort, and protective covering

from this he wanted me

to be his little toy in paw

to smack, and shake and beat

Oh, and how he did!

he beat me down into a pulp

taking my mind and soul

off to hell, well on my way

~ until that very special day!

My brother, Gerardo,

who is known as my HERO!

came to rescue me

from the pit of hell

of which I went off to so willingly

it was satan’s darkest plans I followed ignorantly

Sadly, there are so many others just like me

as if their boat had sunk to leave them lost at sea

He stretched forth his hand in love for me

and I took it ~ but not so freely

I’d slam the phone down in his ear

Smugly

Angrily

For I thought I knew the light from dark

And as I slammed that phone down in his ear

It was pride ~ eating away, and guiding me

I am so glad that he never chose to give up on me

On with his calls he went

Always so lovingly inviting me

To come with him to his new church . . .

For him and for his gift

of showing me the way

I am so forever grateful!

For if he hadn’t left the path of destruction
and turned his life around

I would not find my feet to touch the solid ground

the ground is firm

here to support

all of our miseries

to lift us on up to higher planes

of joy, and life abundantly!

For now it is my joy to see

what it is the Lord has so willingly

Lovingly and freely offered me!

It is a life that sometimes hurts

but in the end is glee

It’s with much hope I long to see

those who hurt to join with me

to get to know this Lord of mine

that took my hand and heart for all time

His name is Jesus Christ, you see

from birth He came to love you

just as He does me

There is not one that He can’t save

out from the snare of the demon king

He was with you yesterday

here with you today,

and His promises are forevermore

to be with you always

Oh, lost one, what is it that

sets you back from holding fast

to that which is so very rich in Truth?

Do not be one to go the way on that dark path

to end up satan’s ruse

For once you leave this world behind

there is no more to do . . . 

once you’re gone far from this place

who will it be you stare in the face?

will it be the one of fiery coals

or will you make Heaven your heart’s goal?

Oh, sweet one, with Love I seek

to see you long for Jesus~ to be His freak!

So, come with me and take my hand

join with me in this fine land

where neither moth nor rust corrupt

and spend eternity!

Let the leaves of your tree fall . . .

On to the land with ease

With the Love of our Lord and Saviour’s

Gentle Loving Breeze

  1. Hello Gracie!
    I am a teacher’s aid at an elementary school. I have the opportunity to go to camp with some girls. I love your tree of righteousness picture and would love to print it onto their t shirts. Can I have your permission to do that?
