When one has been battling illness,
trials and tribulations for some time
and remains faithful and diligent in prayer
yet the answers are delayed for many years
it can cause the soul to become lachrymose
and leave the spirit feeling wretched and broken
in these seasons is when grace’s strength is spoken
by helping us to renew our heavenly hope once again
this is when we are reminded that even though the answers
have not yet come to relieve our sorrows and sufferings
Love’s comfort is always there to carry us through!

Proverbs 15:13 (AMPC)
