Bright new life

I’ve seen the way life’s jungles

open up

into meadows more beautiful than we imagined.

If we want to see God’s glory,

we need to persevere.

I say:

Hack through the brambles,

crawl through the muck.

Sleep in a damp cave if you have to.

Whatever you do, don’t give up.

One day, you’ll burst through and discover

the sun shining.

flowers blooming,

birds waiting

to announce your arrival.

God is planning a bright new life for you.

The question is:

Will you hold onto your faith and find it?
