I am in the middle of this long battle; I don’t have much to say. I think I am conserving energy. But I write poetry as a form of encouragement for myself and for others who might be struggling as well. It somehow gives me more strength to continue to stand. I pray it does the same for you.
Hope Is Calling Me
I hear hope calling me from the future
I hear encouragement in its voice
Despite the destruction all around me
It is saying, “All has not been lost.
There are still unrealized dreams
That cancer could not destroy
There are still uncharted parts of me
That are yet to be explored.”
It’s calling out to me
That what I now see
Is not the end
That there is beauty in my future
That I will rise again.

Amen! Where would we be if it wasn’t for that blessed hope that provides an anchor for our soul in the storm?
Amen! What we now see is surely not the end! We see through a glass darkly but one day all will be clear and we will know as we have been known. Surely beauty is in our future because He is there! And if we hold onto our eyes of faith we can see ourselves even now as He beholds us, precious in His sight and dearly loved!
