Someday everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.-
Harriet Morgan quotes
Disaster strikes again!
Just when you were finally running at a steady pace, you trip over yourself and end up dead last in the race.
With your head in your hands you begin to analyze,
Why you tried in the first place and how you actually believed it was worth a try.
Tears swell up in your eyes, but you won’t let them see you affected,
You pretend it’s no big deal while inside you feel utterly dejected.
Before you know it you’ve been lapped by other runners and not one has yet stopped to see that you are okay,
You are actually quite relieved since they wouldn’t really care if they asked anyway.
After your ego has recovered you prepare yourself to stand,
But before you can pull yourself up off the ground someone has already reached for your hand.
Squinting from the sun in your salty seas of eyes, you try to identify this philanthropist,
He shades your view with His free and and soon you realize it’s Jesus.
You get to your feet and finally begin to cry,
Not because of sadness, but because you realized you fell for the enemy’s lie.
You tell The Lord you are sorry and that you never meant to doubt in,
The fact that with Him on your team it’s a guaranteed win.
Life is a trip and we are all in a spiritual race,
However do not allow the devil to slow down your pace.
He will use your thoughts, your friends, and even your belief to distract you from the finish line,
He will tell you that no matter how hard you work at it, things will never be fine.
We are surrounded by liars, by imposters and by fear every where we turn,
But when we allow Jesus to lead we see the flames before we feel the burn.
He winks at you and once again dusts the dirt on your face,
He takes your hand and together you rejoin the race.
“Time is swift, it races by; Opportunities are born and die… Still you wait and will not try – A bird with wings who dares not rise and fly.” -A.A. Milne
