****

 Oh! This daunting challenge,

with no end in sight,

having my life adversely rearranged.

 **

Now my chilling fears,

a daily faithful companion,

accompanied with bitter tears.

**

 True rest can hardly be,

for even when I try,

my sleep eludes me.

**

 Then comes a gentle voice,

whispering through my mind,

and I listened without a choice.

 **

 “In a moment resides sorrow,

but have faith and stay strong,

for relief comes in the morrow.

**

Though it seems it is here to last,

allay your fears, and wipe your tears,

for this storm will surely pass.”

 ****

Sometimes a gentle voice speaks words of hope and encouragement into our hearts when we are caught up in the middle of the storms in our lives. It may really be challenging to listen to this voice of hope in the midst of the chaos. However, it shows that God truly cares about our situation and can reach out to us through any means possible. It could be a gentle morning breeze, the warm glow of the morning sun, the innocent smile of a child, a butterfly in the sunset, the sway of flowers in the evening breeze, or anything that could inspire and bring hope into our hearts.

Challenges of life are a daily affair. It comes in different categories (like the hurricane) for different people. They all have the potential to break down defenses and wear us out. Depending on how it is managed, people emerge stronger or weaker. However, it remains true that the storms of life will certainly pass with time. How we handle the aftermath will determine how well we cope and recuperate going forward.

Dear friends, have faith in God and stay strong, for the storms in our lives will surely pass.

    1. That’s for sure. Though it might seem like there’s no end in sight, yet it is only temporal. Just be patient and in a little while, you will be back on your feet again. That’s the way I view these things.

    1. Hey Jenny, it’s been a while!😄😄 How are you doing dear? Hope you are doing great with the family too.

      Yes, it’s quite sad when people can’t rise to the sunshine. I understand we all respond differently to the various issues in our lives, and that determines how we cope and recuperate going forward. However, I also think that with a good level of support, a lot more people will do just fine after the storm.

      Thank you so much for stopping by, and your insightful comments. I really appreciate it. Do have a great weekend with the family!🌷

    1. So true. That’s why we need to always try to stay strong through the storms, because we will be able to look back in the aftermath with pride, and probably a smile, of how we survived it, and maybe take home some lessons too.😄😄

      Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Do have a great time!👍

  2. Life comes in as gentle waves, life comes in as harsh waves, but then whenever you look at the sea, the ocean, a calmness overcomes you. Look at life that way; there is beauty always in the end.
