Faith and Grace

by Mike Turner

I faced adversity
Sorrow
Despair
And turned to prayer
Praying that my burdens be lightened
Yet they remained

So again I prayed
This time
I did not pray
For my adversity to be vanquished
My sorrow eased
My despair lifted
But rather
That God’s Will be done
Even should His Plan
Not be revealed to me

And while adversity
Sorrow
Despair
Remained
I found Strength
In the facing of them
And Peace
In accepting
That there was a reason
For my circumstance
And that God was in control

Thus, my prayer was answered
In the Faith God enabled
Through His Grace
