Courage Poem

The Trials Of Life

Like a teacher, I believe God sets us many tests in life to prove how strong we really are. We wonder where he is when times are tough, but as we know, a teacher always stays quiet during a test.

There's hidden strength in all of us, sister Beryl. We must never give up hope never lose faith. I do believe God is never more than a heartbeat away. God Bless.

It's only through mistakes we make
We learn where we went wrong.
It's only when we're far from home
We realize where we belong.

It's only when we close our eyes
Our dreams seem clear and bright.
It's only in our darkest hours
We truly see the light.

It's only when we lose our way
We pray to the stars above.
It's only through times of grief
We learn the true meaning of love.

It's only when all hope seems lost
And our weary journey seems so far,
When all the world's against you
We learn how strong we really are

All things are sent to try us.
We must strive and give our best.
I believe God is watching over us,
And he guides us in our que​st.

A truly awesome write, brother John.
I too believe God watches us
And in our heart invests
The way to find inner strength
That helps us pass life's tests.
