My hardest lessons were to find peace,
My obvious shortcomings became a mountain of despair,
The pit of loneliness allowed no light,
By myself I could not find my way,
I felt Love’s firm hand on my shoulder,
Pointing me towards belonging again.
When love and faithfulness collided with my life,
The sparks shot to the heavens,
The light shower showed me the way forward,
The paralysis of despair healed completely,
My life bursting with creativity,
Certainty in God’s unfailing love,
Poverty is not an option,
In the midst of God’s abundant grace,
Daily forgiveness showing the next step forward.
Harvest time is coming soon,
My spirit revived by meeting life’s deepest joy,
Acceptance replaces rejection,
Belonging bringing a deep gladness,
My life speaking of daily eternal hope.
