God’s Lake
By: Lisa Noe*Cat*

Beyond the mountain there is a lake.
Some how it summons me, come here.
It knows.

I was once Baptized in this lake.
I tried to do all that was right.
But failed.

I wanted to be like Jesus.
He is the Hero of my soul.
I love.

I recall this lake so fondly.
It is in my heart forever.
You see.

I fell from a good pedestal,
I found my way back to Jesus
He’ll Save!

I’ve been through tragedy for life.
Known sickness, liars, and cheaters.
They're evil.

They have tramped on my life for years.
But with God’s strength, I can move on.

So the lake reminds me of God.
The good things he brought to my life.
He’s great.
