View Full Version : A Piece of work that I think is so interesting and so true..

I was on another site on the computer when I found this writing. I want to share it with you all:

We must be hurt in order to grow,
We must fail in order to know,
We must lose in order to gain.
Some Lessons are learned best only through pain.
Our vision clears only after our eyes are washed with tears.
We have to be broken, so we can be tender,
We are sick so we can rest and think better
on things more important than work or fun,
We are taken for a trip near death, so we can assess how we've run.
We have to suffer, so we can know God's provision,
We have to feel another's pain, so we can have a sense of mission.
So take heart, if you don't understand today,
Instead of grumbling, ask God what He means to say,
In order to learn you must endure, and learn to see the bigger picture.
In order to grow, you must stand and look beyond the hurt,
Trust in God's loving hand that takes what is Good, and gives what is Best,
And on this blessed thought, rest your anxious heart with all the questions,
God's hand only gives what his loving heart dictates,
The Lord calms the storm,
He lets the storm rage... and calms His child...
Better go through the storm with Him,
Than smooth waters without Him...
Be Blessed today!

I think that this is so true. What do you think? Hugs, Kathleen

I printed it and put it in my purse so that I can refer to it on those days when I am in despair!

Thank You For Sharing!

Peace and Blessings

Wonderful! If all were perfect for us, would we ever learn compassion?
thanks--I too, printed it :)
