You cannot see what I am going through, you cannot feel the grip of my pain. You cannot adequately comfort my ever-crumbling soul you simply do not have what it takes to shield me from life's rain. You are not the answer to my problems nor do you have the words to impart. I have only one Savior and He has redeemed the whole of my heart. I am not what I am going through and I am not what you or any other can see. For I do not look like what I am going through and nothing of this world will ever define me! I may bear the marks of ruin, I may be a testimony of shame, I may be the very face of trouble but these are not my name. I may fail in the face of trial, I may be misunderstood. I may be all these and worse but all these things are for my good. For I do not look like what I am going through my countenance as you see will always shine. For my life is hidden in Christ and glory will one day be mine!
Awake to Hope, You are not what you are going through. You are not your pain. You are not anything this world can define because your life is hidden in Christ!
