Journey


This journey has been tough,

So difficult I even thought of giving up countless times,

So painful I even thought I could not survive,

So degrading at times I even thought it was a punishment,

But yet I survived, and am fighting on.



I have learnt to feel excruciating pain,

I have learnt to shed tears over and over,

I have learnt to be bitter,

I have learnt how it feels to be envious,

I have learnt how it feels to want to die.



In all this I have learnt:

Everything happens for a reason at God’s appointed time (Ecclesiastes 3: 1) ,

Everything happens for my good (Romans 8: 28) ,

Everything happens to make me stronger (James 1: 2-4) ,

Everything happens so that God will receive all glory (2 Corinthians 4: 15) ,

God gives me strength to endure (Philippians 4: 13) .



It has been a journey and I am grateful……

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
