Gotta Stay Focused

Gotta Stay Focused

Life is hard,
The road... So tough,
No matter what I do,
It's never enough.

I'm at rope's end,
Don't know what to do,
There's nowhere to turn,
Except to You.

My life is crashing, Thunder rolls deep,
Rain pouring all around me, The water... so steep.

It's not just me, Three lives in my care,
Don't know how to support them, But I know You're there.

I won't lose faith, I refuse to give in,
Because I know, above all, In the end... You win.

I life my eyes to heaven, To where my help comes from,
But my mind takes control, And the tears begin to run.

My hope gets lost, And I forget to turn,
Yet I know without You, My life would just burn.

So I cry to You, In my time of need,
Any available hope, To You, I plead.

What's Your Opinion:

How important is focusing on faith for you when you are going through hard times?

I appreciated this heartfelt poem and thankful you are looking up in your trials. They can be hard to carry and it's never easy, but building faith is what it's all about. Hang in there! And keep writing - it helps to know others sympathize and are concerned for you. Take care and may God bless you soon!

It can be difficult at times to step outside of yourself and remember that you are not alone. As Christians, we are never alone. Each trial is to strengthen and prepare us for what is to come. The wise know there are always more trials to come. Wisdom should be on the other end of each trial.
