While my head was bowed in despair from grief,
under the cover of darkness-
God lifted me into the journey of a lifetime.
Across a vast, deep canyon,
through still waters
He carried me
into greater beauty-
I was blind,
but now safely on the other side,
I wanted life to be easier –
now I’m grateful for unanswered prayers
and a God, who works in the pitch black night of the soul
to deliver us
into His greater glory.
