“You will be hated by all because of my name,
but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.
By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”
~ Luke 21:5-19
The nights can be dark
And they can be dreary
But there is the moon
To comfort the weak and the weary.
The days have the sun
To make things bright and happy
But there will be shadows
And clouds can make things gloomy.
My faith makes me strong
In the face of adversity
But the journey is still difficult
And it’s rarely easy.
The biggest struggle I have
Is the battle within me
And then I still have to contend
With my clash with the rest of humanity.
I hold to the good Lord’s promise
Not a hair on my head will be destroyed
With faith and perseverance,
Despair and doubts, I can avoid.
