" Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are 'patches of godlight' in the woods of our experience."

Perseverance

I will persevere!
I will carry on!
Though it seems life is pointless,
Though it seems I'm going in circles,
God has a plan and a purpose.
I know He will bring me
To the place I ultimately belong.

The clouds are parting,
And the sun is peeking through.
Some days are still dreary,
But I can feel the healing.
For the first time in months,
I can smile freely!
Trusting in God,
Whether I feel His presence or not,
I know He is here,
Carrying me in His arms.

I am weary and stretched,
But He gives me strength
For each new day.
If I am to know Him,
I must share in His sufferings.
Who better to share with
Than my Most High God?

He knows me more intimately
Than any other.
He is the only one who can heal me.
I will press on
And fix my eyes to the goal.
No matter what happens around me,
Though all my friends fail
Or abandon me,
I'll keep my eyes on the prize
For He never fails,
Nor will He leave me!
