Stories go with them as well.
I see your struggle, all your fears,
I see you’re worried, but comfort’s here.
Look around you to those who grow,
See how struggle’s one all know.
And those who don’t, will someday,
For sometimes struggle is delayed.
In that moment, when you are down,
do observe the sights and sounds.
See the athletes, those who win,
are those who persevere within.
What is this mind’s fear of faith,
What fall hurts too much to face?
Rise above, live with God, go on to fight with good sights sought.
I tell you this, about your push –
Lack of faith won’t make life cush.
– Thomas M. Watt
