Jesus Saves

A Story of Redemption

A Sto­ry of Redemp­tion I recent­ly dis­cov­ered this poem I had writ­ten almost 5 years ago. It was an encour­ag­ing reminder to me of the growth and heal­ing God has brought into my life. I had only writ­ten up to “I’ll look back some­day and say,” but I can say now, my life is a tes­ti­mo­ny to His grace and redemp­tion. Jesus saves!
