A Poem by Kate Z.

I wrote this in 2012, shortly after my husband of nearly 42 years was killed. I was struggling to make sense of this new season of life, unwelcome, undesired, unsought, yet my present reality.

Now I see,
As I could not see before,
that God gives His promises
as a chart is given to a ship,
as a compass to an explorer.
I am learning
that I can set my course
and find my way by His promises.
They will lead me and guide me
In places where there is no trodden path.
By them I can walk
upon the waves
and fly with eagles.

I am truly blessed.

An inspiring poem about how we are all promised greatness. Though each person has a unique journey there, it's up to us to navigate the road to our individual greatness. We can rely on a spiritual leader to guide us on our path because we are blessed.
