Grim news

Hi Friends, I know the world is crazy right now and I as much I would love to add platitudes that everything will be better tomorrow, I am not the person who has ordained the world to move, the stars to shine and love to cleanse the world. I would like to share this poem that I wrote.

Now A little backstory, this poem was written during cancer treatments and as scared as I was, I remember writing this poem and God using the words to remind me that every step, every breath, every time something became better it was a miracle. We need to keep our eyes focused on God and the light at the end of the tunnel. It isn’t a train but a star, much like a star that lead the wise men to Jesus and right now there is darkness but things will get better. The Son will rise again. And God will heal the world.

Isaiah 58:8-9

Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

TTFN and God Bless you and keep you
