Do You Have Gloomy Days?

Some Days are Foggier!

Sometimes my strength seems to diminish, my walk falters and my grasp is weak,

Confidence now shaken, vision now blurred, shadows of doubt on the path near my feet.

Resources dwindle, hunger abides, failure visits more frequent as doom tempts my soul. Concerns now inward of weakness and err, forgetting past victories, and meeting past goals.

My soul dwells in darkness, in a land called Negativity, Now I am anxious with fret and despair.

Becoming almost convinced that all is impossible, believing my doubt, I’ll never get there!

Then, a whisper.. “eagles that soar”, and yet another.. “all things are possible in Christ”.

His indwelling Spirit quietly begins to remind me of God’s promise to help me in the fight!

As He ministers to my spirit, my mind gets renewed, my hope lights a flicker lighting the dark.

In faith I step out in His strength not mine, with hope now stirred on our path I embark!

He whispers once more “good things for you, are my plans”

as He holds me and mine in the palms of His hands.

Now, the light shines quite brightly, a clearer path I do see

How much easier our walk is, when it’s We and not me!
