Changing Words

I used to think sarcasm 

Didn’t matter much to most 

I use to use it every single day

But then I found my words 

Were hurting all my friends 

Like an arrow from a bow, a mark they made
Then one day I met Jesus 

And His gentle voice called out 

In a way that did elicit my response 

I knelt down on my knees 

And I asked Him in my heart 

 I knew my life was changed from that day on
The first thing my friends noticed 

Was the changing of my words 

The sarcasm and cursing was all gone

I told them I’d met Jesus

And you should do the same 

You’ll be glad you did your whole life long.
