Response and Ability


It doesn’t seem fair or just that one maintain a incomprehensible depth of joy when the sorrows of this world are at its unfathomable height. Is that why I so often sink into the groove of despair? I become a stranger among friends, a foe among family. Many are but oblivious to the inheritance they claim. How sad my yesses dissolve into guesses when one refuses my generosity. It is easier to hope in a distant fortune than to manage it.

“Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.” (Psalm 42:11)

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
