"Shining Light"

In my May Archives I have something called "A Walk With God In The Rain" which I hope you read.  In it I inserted a poem I wrote about a side of pain that concerns God.  So many here live so bravely with such burdens, I thought it was worth another post:

                                   " SHINING LIGHT "

If you do live in constant pain and fear you'll never smile again,

If every move is full of woe, you feel there's no safe place to go,

Seek out your God, your closest Friend, and do not break when you can bend.

You've always been within His sight, so make of pain a Shining Light -

Dwell upon this very hard, for life can be so tough and scarred,

In every plan or scheme or race, give your thought to Saving Grace.

For it's not the hurt that makes us brave, it's not the fear of coming grave

But rather it's the way that we, turn on our Light - with Dignity.

Thanks for sharing that with us. I am in some pain in a daily basis but when I write what I believe, then the pain is so insignificant that time passes and the pain is less noticeable. My God listens more intently to me when I ask him to help others. I am sure by this time he is fed up listening to my woes, but he never lets me down when I ask on behalf of someone else. He is a worldly and subtle God He is. My pain I am sure He shares with me. Now that is what I call Dignity! Many thanks once again

Thank you luddie this poem as all your others is very touching.  I find that if I turn my pain into helping others and ask God to lessen the burden they carry that my pain becomes less.  A wonderful poem.
