Life is not Perfect!

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.
…A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 4

ecclesiastes-3-11

Life is not Perfect!

The pain and heartache
They come and they go
Cutting deep
Wounding the soul

Burdens too much to carry
Spirit weighed down
Living in the here and now
Sorrow abounds

Life is not perfect
Nor was it meant to be
A precursor of something better
A realm yet unseen

The heart it beckons
The spirit it yearns
The soul cries out
This world it spurns

Hope lies beyond
High in the heavens above
A continuous fount of life
God’s river of love

Loving arms of comfort
Sweet prayers from thine lips
Peace for the moment
Grief stands eclipsed

Through mercy and grace
The pain subsides
Where once heartache dwelled
Now joy resides

Worn ~ Tenth Avenue North

Amazing how music just lines up with the heart and soul, speaking what often times I cannot!  I am worn indeed.  I am praying for strength, for endurance to run the race set before me, for the ability to continue to love though I am so broken, for the chance to shine once again brighter than ever before, yet right now I am so very worn.  Still I cling to the hope and promises of God; promises of a future filled with good and hope (Jeremiah 29:11).

For I have fully satisfied the weary soul,
and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
~ Jeremiah 31:25
