Affliction (poem)

Updated on May 18, 2015


It's a battle,

a fight,

a journey,

a pain to endure


It's a test,

a valley,

an insight,

a blur;

an invitation to know Him more,


It may be hard,

it may refuse to give me rest,

but I know He knows what's best,


He knows the pain,

He knows the hurt,

He knows His purpose,


Glory and honor, may it give to Him;

as a whole and in brokenness,

may I be of good use for Him,

Let this be my conviction in times of affliction.



Soli Deo Gloria!

      He does know! And it's a wonderful thing to let Him bring us to places of deeper understanding of His omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence.
