When troubles and trials

pile up on top

of one another,

And everything we have tried to do

ends up in failure

and defeat,

Life seems so hopeless.


When there does not seem to be

a single ray of light

to lead us to believe

that things will ever get better,

And there is nothing we can do

to change the circumstances

in which our lives

have become entangled,

All hope seems gone.


Is it really hopeless?


No, not if you ask God

to take over the bits and pieces

of your fragmented life

And put them back together again.


The failures may still hurt,

and the troubles

may not all

go away,

But the future will not be hopeless.


With God all things are possible!
