“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
I hope you are doing well. I do not feel as if I have anything substantive to say with this entry, however, this poem recently spoke to me and provided a glimpse of encouragement during my current bout with depression. Although I feel as if words fail me, hopefully the above poem can speak to you despite whatever difficulty you may be facing.
Until next time,
