Fitness Test





How does life shape you?
In its hurdles and hurt
Do we get back up
Or languish in the dirt?

How do we respond
To its keening drill?
Do we carry on
Letting love mold our will?

Grace is deliverance
And Mercy is free
Lean on its Giver
With humility

The teacher of Time
Wields a winnowing knife
Ever the shaper
Of this little life

Then, count its kind blessing
And oh, never cease
For beyond the testing
Is love’s masterpiece

  1. Yep, we do need to just let go, don't we? And trust Him. But it's not always easy.
