These eyes have seen dark days
This heart has felt much sorrow
This mind has battled depression
This spirit had lost all hope for tomorrow
These eyes have seen loved ones disappear
This heart has created walls
This mind has fought for mental stability
This spirit has endured countless pitfalls
These eyes have seen deep struggle
This heart has been severely damaged
This mind has overcome confusion
This spirit has fought to manage
But somehow I survived...
The trauma these eyes have seen
The aches this heart has felt
The anguish this mind has battled
The brokenness with which this spirit has dealt
How did I survive?
It surely wasn't by chance
It wasn't in my own strength
Nor by the power of my weak hands
It's because these eyes learned to look to Jesus
This heart learned to embrace His love
This mind learned to seek His peace
This spirit connected to The Power Source above
These eyes now see the beauty of life
This heart now joy exudes
This mind now rests in serenity
This spirit has been wholly rescued
That's how I survived
He's kept these eyes, this heart, this mind, this spirit alive

Life is sometimes an ever-changing whirlwind filled with uncertainty. Some days, weeks, months, even years of your life can be so dark and challenging that it's scary. Those times are quite discouraging, and often cause you to believe that your life is meaningless. You feel so empty...
Place your life, and all of it's uncertainty, in the hands of Jesus, in all of His sovereignty.
Jesus = Life!
