As Long As I Live

By Lucy Wall

One day I was reading through Psalm 104 and when I came to verse 33, it really jumped out at me.
It read:

“I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.”

I thought this was a beautiful Scripture and I felt that the rhythm and sentiment of the verse lent itself perfectly well for a poem! Within a matter of seconds I found myself writing “As Long As I Live.”

Even When I Sleep

My inspiration for this poem came from a very strange event that happened to me late one night. I was in the middle of having a nightmare and felt the Lord stirring me and making me aware of the fact that I needed to wake up. I've been aware of Jesus "rescuing" me from unpleasant dreams several times in the past but as I started to come around this time I discovered to my horror that I couldn't actually move any part of my body! I couldn't even speak or make a noise and felt like I was being pinned to my bed! It was as if there was a huge pressure pushing down on my chest and arms and like it was spreading down my whole body. I knew that if I didn 't get it to stop then the sensation was going to keep getting worse and more frightening.
