From Death To Eternity

Jake Allen Sharp

Demons from my past come visiting me

Shadows are cast of distant misery

A haunting ghost I had left behind

Creeps into my soul and into my mind

Soon I am feeling out of control

Body is reeling as the wind blows

My thoughts full of twisted debris

Jesus I know you can calm the seas

My sin will be remembered no more

Removing my guilt is what you died for

Remind me now, I’m washed in your blood

Forgiveness washes o’er me like a flood

Soon I am feeling out of control

Body is cleansed by a crimson flow

Sin crucified with you on a tree

Brought me from death to eternity

10:07 – Savant Syndrome? OK. I can see that. 

10:08 – Another doctor or…

(9-25-17) I posted a blog yesterday describing the plight of Christopher Sharikas who has spent nearly twenty years in prison for a violent carjacking committed after he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Washington Post Reporter Rachel Weiner tells his story in today’s edition. What frustrates me is Judge Paul F. Sheridan’s claim that a sixteen year oldClick …
