Persistence poem

Good Sunday,

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.

Anne Stortz from Chicken Soup for the Unsinkable Soul

Until next time,
