In the darkest moments, keep the faith. Even when inner peace seems to have left you, try to focus on actions rather than fear that the situation might be posing. It always get better, trust me, always even if there is a new low before it gets better! Just like tears come after smiles, joy comes after sadness. So many spiritual books talk about no emotion is permanent and no situation is here to stay forever. Same is with people, they come and go. Some leave early some stay for longer but all make an exit eventually and sometimes it is our turn to go. But regardless of who left, it gets better! Just keep breathing, hoping, taking one day at a time, maybe one moment at a time. Set little goals like brushing your teeth, making that phone call or cooking the dish that you always liked! And keep moving forward taking baby steps, slowly, maybe resting a little but keep moving on! Know you are around because there is a deeper reason! The higher power is invested in you even if you cannot see it clearly right now! Sending a big hug to you whoever you are! You will make it :-)

This poem is a reminder that God has my back! There are so many instances in my life when I was saved from an imminent danger, was successful even when I was not fully prepared, or received peace in the middle of chaos! Trusting God never failed me! His definition and timing for my success may have been different than mine but it is always better than what I anticipated. I have learned that I can always hope for a better tomorrow in the middle of darkness and fear! He has blessed me more than I deserve and beyond my imagination! For me God is beyond any description we read in books, His love goes beyond human understanding and His greatness is the greatest mystery!
He gives me peace,
Even when I cannot comprehend.
He gives me victory,
Even when I have no weapon!
He makes my paths straight,
Even when I am lost,
He sprinkles little blessings,
Even when I am at my worst!
He makes me win the race,
Even when I am stumbling,
He makes me His instrument of peace,
Even when I am struggling!
He lets me shine,
Even when I am focusing on fears
He raises me up,
Even when I am drowning in tears!
He makes me His perfect miracle,
Even when I am deficient,
He makes my cup overflow,
Even when I don't have sufficient!
Yes, the country seeks peace. But the angry protestors seek justice, The grieving mothers seek justice, The oppressed generations ...
