Inside of every seed is the power to break through the darkness
and inside of every person is the ability to rise from hardship.
Knowing that potential makes all the difference.
Because life can be hard
and the journey long.
Pain and devastation can crush the will to even live.
But then down there deep
where only God can see
is that precious seed of hope
just waiting to be watered into life.
Sometimes it’s the gentle word of a friend
or a tender hug
or even a cup of tea.
Sometimes it’s the friendship of one
who comes beside
and doesn’t leave.
More often than not their act of simply listening to the brokenness
rains mercy drops from on high on the weary soul
giving hope that
there will be a way to go on.
Tenderly cradled in that place of care
one begins to see that there is more.
More than their present difficult situation
More than the vast devastation all around.
More than that painful loss and cruel dashing of dreams.
Yes, one begins to see the light of possibility.
And with that outstretched hand of hope
one begins to think
just maybe I can overcome.
He comes to our lives in different ways whispering that truth.
Hope after darkness.
Song after tears.
Healing following illness.
Life after loss.
Yes, deep within each one
is that seed to overcome any adversity.
His Power works deep within
calling us to take His Hand and arise.
Ever present healing and hope
