What If Joy? – Poem


When pain pulls down the window shade
Through which our hope might see
What if joy might be the bridge on which
We must cross to be free?

Till God in grace bends down to lift
Our earthbound looking eyes
And, we can see the mountain peaks
Over which His wings can fly

So, no hiding in the corner or
Sailing far across the seas
Don’t miss the path of joy by which
Our faith in laughter leads!

1 Corinthians 10:13b
God is faithful and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability 
but with the temptation He will also provide the way of escape 
that you may be able to endure it.

    • Thank you Beth. I’d love to add music, I can play a bit and occasionally have written songs. We’ll see but I do appreciate the encouragement. I do believe that the words persist such as Mary’s song and the 23rd Psalm while none of us knows the original melody. Music is in all our hearts; planted there by our creator – the greatest composer of all time!
