Shining Moments

Aug 26, 2013

mother's day 2013 -4I swallowed and took another deep breath.

Closed door.

Unexpected no.

Disappointment for sure.

So what do you do when you’ve done everything you know to do


the worst happens anyway?

You’ve worked hard

but still fail the test –

You’ve studied your craft

but still get rejections.

You’ve done all that you can do

and the marriage is still difficult.

You try to adopt but at the last minute it fails.

You’ve scanned the sea for days and still see no path.

You want to believe but there’s just this nagging doubt.

So what do you do?

You believe anyway! No matter how you feel.

You keep going no matter how difficult.

Submit the manuscript one more time.

Apply again – take the course again.

Yes, instead of letting yourself become defeated

you push forward


Because God never changes and He is Love.

He knows the future and we can trust Him.

He calls us to place our plans,

our little ways,

and our will

into His Mighty Hand.

So like a child

I reach up again and let Him hold me.

Once more

everything is alright.

“You are never alone,” He whispers.

“Walk with Me.

You can do it.”
