At the lowest of moments;
and when times feel rough.
When we feel all hope is gone;
what we have is not enough.
Our spirit has been broken;
family and friends no longer there.
As the rough tides of the ocean;
seem to wash us out to sea;
and we feel no one cares.
When we feel there is no life-line;
and the problems are knee deep.
When faith in everything is gone;
and depression weakens our bones.
Just when we feel there is no hope;
we’re tired inside and out;
hurting deep within our soul.
There is still love on this earth;
people who cherish us and all
we have to offer this world.
Someone somewhere is the
beacon of light that shines
true, gracefully and bright.
If we take a look around us;
there is someone out there;
who is our strong lighthouse
standing by the sea, waiting to
guide us in from the tides that
bind and the troubled waters.
As we look up and around us;
we behold that light, grasp it;
allow it to guide us in to shore.
and we began to stand strong;
as we see our dry bones come alive!

Beautifully written… sometimes the light is there and we don’t know.
Thank you so much.
You are so right. This is something that was put on my heart so strongly and I had to write and post it.
I pray it helps someone. It helps me. Have a blessed day!
You also! It was a pleasure to read.
