I am a huge fan of reading books. They challenge my thoughts, encourage me to think differently about my life, expose me to worlds of new possibilities and are a quiet place of escape from our over-stimulating world. For days when life seems overwhelming, I try to keep this poem in mind. I pray it speaks to you in some way.
When all the world is looming dark
And things seem not so clear,
When shadows seem to hover ’round
Lord, may I persevere.
When it seems everything’s been tried
And there’s no way to go,
Just let me keep remembering
Sometimes the journey’s slow.
I may just need to stop and rest
Along the path I trod,
A time to try to understand
And have my talk with God.
As I gain new strength to carry on
Without a doubt or fear,
Somehow I know things will be right,
And so, I persevere.
