The News - by Roni Archer

It wasn’t what I wanted –

My worse fear coming true.

At first, I felt one big rush;

I even questioned You.

My life felt in such chaos!

The next step was the holes….

How could I possibly deal with this?

I struggled in my soul.

My life at that point seemed shattered.

My tears were not enough.

I needed more to carry me;

More than being tough.

I stepped into Your glory!

I felt Your hand on me!

You said, “Come to Me, My child,

I’ll set your spirit free!”

It’s still not what I wanted –

But now it is my truth.

While I can’t see the future,

I will depend on You.

Cancer is a bitter word!

One that’s hard to hear.

Wrap Your arms around me, Lord.

In Your presence, there is no fear.

“Perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18
