Total Stranger - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

At times we come to a crossroads in our lives, suddenly
losing sight of the goals we've set for ourselves and
wanting to give up entirely.

Not wanting to move forward any longer, tired of trying
because we see we aren't making any progress, upon
looking closer, realizing that we have stopped looking.

No longer focusing on our goals, ambitions and passion
in our lives, suddenly seeing the reality of our situation,
knowing that we haven't made any headway at all.

We are stuck in an emotional quicksand, sinking into a
place of self-defeat within ourselves, thinking to give
up just because we are not doing what we need to do.

Then along comes a person, a total stranger, looking from
the outside in, seeing our potential, telling us they've
done so.

Our whole world becoming focused and clarified in that
very moment, changing our lives unexpectedly forever,
knowing within our very souls that God has spoken to us.

Through this person, one whom God used as an instrument
to reach and answer our heart's prayer, our lives are now
back on track and we're moving forward once again.
