At times without clue, what direction it flows.
It takes the wind from our sail and leaves us adrift, with sadness and sorrow as its unwelcome gifts…
There’s a time for mourning, there’s pain with our loss, but like other barriers, it’s a river to cross.
There’s a cross road we reach, whether ready or not… it’s within our own power, what course we must plot. We can sadly drift along, letting sorrow take us down, or we can realize our blessings, turning sadness around.
Often, when He sends us crisis, we turn to Him in anger. True, we cannot choose what Allah wishes us to carry,
but we can carry it with courage knowing that He will never abandon us nor send something we cannot cope with .
Sometimes, Allah breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes, He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes, He allows pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes, Allah sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes, He allows illness so we can take better care of ourselves.
And sometimes, Allah takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.
So, As life’s pages turn, certain doors we must close, with acceptance of endings our wisdom then grows.
We can turn back the pages and reflect with a smile, maybe cherish special moments to relieve for a while. But every door that closes another swing wide, with a beckoning of encouragement for us to step inside.
With faith as our lifeline, there’s a big world out there, There’s so much to explore, Giving up can’t compare,
So put a smile on our face and thank God.. we still have life to live up, Give credits to Its Source!
That we have a chance to survive…
We have adventures to pursue and also sweet memories to make (not just to remember thou),
So to live..to see tomorrow is the choice we must take,
For whatever this is worth,
This thought we embrace,
To know we have chosen to try leave a smile on our face…
