Suffering in the Glow

This is a contribution by my friend Anthony Gomez of South Carolina. He writes to another blog-mate who suffers a debilitating condition of immense proportions, but who is resolved to live in the praises and the glow of Jesus. “Our light affliction is but for a moment…”

This is to you
Who suffer sorrows, pains and losses
Who struggle with afflictions in their many forms
Whose contours are molded outside of society’s norms
Seeming misfits who do not shirk nor hesitate when volunteers are sought
Who understand the price paid for what was bought
Take a step forward against a gale
Answer a call in a storm
Selflessly set sail
To those unhaunted by the past
In the “now”
You who are a living inspiration to others
You whom The Lord has favored
And whom the enemy cannot smother
You who show and boast in Jesus by your walk
How great the witness of those “forgiven”
Who continue on physically impaired
Yet only see and tell of the Love of The Lord
Without impairment in expressivity of gratitude
Who tell of God’s grace and mercy
How blessed are they?
On eagle’s wings…
May you ever soar!
2 Corinthians 12:8,9
