Watertema soos myne mosaiek

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)

13 A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.

How Do I Get Through?

I received an email from someone in the AIP community (people struggling with autoimmune conditions, such as, Hashimoto’s, Graves, different forms of arthritis, any condition where the immune system is attacking some part or parts of the body) asking how others get through in the subject line. As I sat and pondered that question, I was inspired to write this poem. I myself have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Graves, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Adrenal Fatigue. This is how I get through as I work with God to put these conditions in remission.

How Do I Get Through?

I get through
the trials and tribulations
with faith in the One
who created me
trusting in His will
to carry me through
I look to no other
for no other has power
only the One who is
my High Tower
When I weary
and lose sight
I lean on the One
who is my Might
So, how do I get through
the only way I can
by taking hold of
God’s loving hand!
