Whispered Words of Hope

Throughout my life 
I have learned many things.
That courage is given, not contrived.
That strength and endurance are produced through adversity.
That compassion is born through the pain of wounded hearts.
That the sweet breath of God fills my lungs to capacity,
when the rising waters threaten to drown.
That the foundation on which I stand never gives way,
even when my world seems to fall apart.
That on those days when shades of gray dance before my eyes,
the ever faithful sun shines brighter than the day before.
That when in that deep, dark pit of despair,
eyes of perfection gaze through mine leading me to safety.
That on those nights when sleep cruelly teased my mind,
the Sweet Spirit of God taught me how to pray.
And when sorrow overwhelmed my ability to voice my concerns,
He prayed for me, understanding the unspoken
language of my own spirit.
Finally, He taught me how to listen and recognize
His still, small voice,
As He whispered soothing words of
hope into my soul.


And so, I have
resolved that today, I will embrace
the struggles I face and turn them into challenges.
I will stand and peer straight into the face of fear,
diffusing its power over me.
I will build a mighty ship, and take
advantage of the rising floodwaters dangerous 
undercurrents as they push me safely to shore.
I will use the pain of my past, to rescue
those trapped in that deep, dark pit of despair.
I will face whatever lies before me
with a courage that comes only from the
heart of an understanding and compassionate Father.
I will remember the words of hope
the Sweet Spirit of God whispered
into my soul. For hope is what cultivated
the trust I needed to close each and every one of my
fingers around the lifeline placed on the palm of my hands
by my Sweet Jesus, as he freely instilled the gift of Faith
deep within the confines of a soul filled with
turmoil and uncertainty, setting me free to walk in that
Faith, with a peace and confidence that comes only through the 
Power of His Love!

Very well written and sincere expression, it was a joy to read thank you and God bless.
The source clear and unmistakably obvious.

Obviously you have seen much through the eyes of Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians. Your message would not be popular in many large sanctuaries of victory talk, but in fact through the Spirit of Christ you have described true Christian victory so very well. Thanks for an excelent package..Doug
