    Turned Downside Up

    Turned Downside Up
    by Belinda van Rensburg

    I have a song in my heart and a spring in my step;
    I know without a doubt that Jesus died in my stead.
    He took and drank the bitter cup,
    now my life's been turned wholly downside up.

    I finally opened wide the door of my heart
    and that very moment I was given a new start;
    a new beginning and a brand-new song
    to sing to my Savior my whole life long.

    The words of my mouth and the thoughts in my mind
    are no longer cruel but they're loving and they're kind;
    My heart is filled with love and adoration
    Oh, what a liberating, glorious sensation!

    I feel so relieved; my burdens are all gone
    and I hop and I skip and I dance all day long;
    there's no holding back; I am flying, I am free -
    I've come out of the darkness and now I can see!

    Why You Were Turned Downside Up

    I looked through the Book and there the reason I found.
    You were turned downside up to turn the world upside down.
    That song in your heart is there to put joy in your walk,
    and those words of kindness and love in all of your talk.
    All this was given you to take the bitterness out of the cup of others.
    Through sharing God's love you can even turn strangers into brothers.

    Thank you, friends - much appreciated.

    Pastor Mike - was that a rhyming prophecy

    Have a great weekend, and God bless.

    Not a prophecy, but a commission.
    By the way, that's a great poem. I hope you have a great day.

    Hi Maggie - nice to 'see' you here.
    This poem really reflects what happened in my life - I made a real mess out of it, and everything was totally upside down. Then I accepted Jesus, and He made my life beautiful (and downside up) again. Praise God!

    Blessings
