Thank God for this precious life; I appreciate
all the struggles I have faced throughout
my lifetime — the misfortunes, the torture,
and the hot lava tears have built
the foundation for my resilience.
Back then, I was anything but appreciative
—the anger and the frustration, the beat-down
from a hard-knock-life became my go-to
escape routes. Jesus was the farthest thing from
my mind, now I can’t stop thinking about Him
I wouldn’t be here without His saving grace; I
remember begging for the courage to end my life.
