Ann's Corner

A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.


God is still into deliverance……

I had a bout with depression, and God delivered me in an unmistakable way. I just wanted to share, in this kind of “poetry” format, what happened…how God rescued me from what felt like an impossible situation, with the thought that this might bring someone else HOPE…….


Despair claws at me,
Narrowing my vision to the source of the pain,
And hope becomes a distant pinhead of light,
At the end of a dark, dark tunnel,
And I cannot reach it.

I am sucked into the fog,
Unable to breath, and almost suffocated
And time slips away into a forgetful oblivion,
In a distant, far off land
And I am unable to move.

Where is life? It is not here,
This is living death, of demonic persuasion,
But in a moment of lucidity, I remember God,
And call out His name, and sweetness surrounds me
And envelopes me in wonder
And I am free to breathe.

My God is alive
Bringing me light, and hope and deliverance in Christ
And joy becomes a blossom in full bloom
In the chambers of my heart
And I praise His name.
In gratitude……
