Journey - Poem by Faith Nzisa
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……
