Keep Believing! A Poem
Keep Believing!
By Laura McDonald

A Poem

Psalm 23:4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for you are with me; your rod [to protect] and your staff [to guide], they comfort me. Questions, questions, questions Who? What? Where? When? Maybe the biggest question of all.

WHY ? Sorrow and pain intertwined with a longing to understand Should I? Could I? Would I? Is it my fault? Who do I blame? Out of the darkness comes a force of light it cuts through all of my questions and exposes the condition of my heart.

There are scratches, bruises and a gaping wound that is bleeding. As the light gently touches every hurt, a healing process begins. The damaged places are miraculously restored like new I feel different!

The pain is a memory instead of a present experience.The bleeding has stopped and no longer steals the life within me there is a hope, an expectancy that has risen deep inside. There is a strength to keep believing once again.
