“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.” – Job 8:21

Guest Testimony #1

Dear Readers,
This week has been pretty crazy with school and I haven’t been able to finish part two of the Abraham series yet.  Because of that, I decided to debut the first personal testimony a little early.  I received this beautiful poem from Joanne.  It will be going up on the new Testimonies page soon.  Be encouraged by Joanne’s heart shone so clearly in her poem.
—————————————————————————————————–
Twas a bitter November eve
When the friend I loved would leave
It would drastically change my life
And my heart would always grieve.
***
His face showed much regret
That tear I’ll never forget
He said, “I’ve no other choice.”
I don’t see truth in that yet.
***
I didn’t quite understand
With the silent wave of his hand
Why my world came tumbling down
As he slipped from my grasp like sand.
***
My pain on the Lord I cast
My burdens were lifted at last
Since that bitter November eve,
Now two years have passed.
***
At times I still grow weary
My eyes get saddened and teary
Yet Jesus has always come through
So not long will I remain dreary.
***
Now for my friend I must pray
He would come to the Lord one day
Not for my sake, but his
That down his life he must lay.
***
I’ll certainly be alright
As long as my God is my Light
And Jesus is healing me of
That bitter November night.
– Joanne
