In my over 4 decades of existence, I have seen many things by which I have been instructed:
I have seen FAITH without STANDARDS;
I have seen CONFESSION without COMMITMENT;
I have seen VANITY, branded as VIRTUE;
I have seen WEAKNESS promoted as STRENGTH;
I have seen PILLARS become GALLOWS;
I have seen SHEPHERD become WOLF;
I have seen the OFFENDED punished and the OFFENDER crowned;
I have seen DINNER GUEST, who forbids his HOST from partaking from the delicacies he had prepared;
I have seen the SATISFIED being begged with food and the HUNGRY left to die;
I have seen HATERS speaking the soothing words of LOVE to the UNWARY;
I have seen where every fact known to man implicated ONE and yet he is INNOCENT;
I have seen my BEST INTENTIONS mistaken for ULTERIOR MOTIVE;
I have seen my BEST EFFORTS viewed as NO-EFFORTS;
I have seen my MISTAKES celebrated as my EXPERTISE;
I have seen DEATH FACE TO FACE 10 times, yet I have LIVED;
I have seen that all that GLITTERS may not be GOLD and all that is GOLD may not GLITTER;
I have LOST SOME,
I have WON MANY;
I have learnt the WISDOM to ABOUND and ABASE;
Above all, I have seen the SUPER ABUNDANCE MERCIES and FAITHFUL GOODNESS of God;
My HEART is full of MATTERS,
These days even when my eyes are opened, it is as if they are shut,
I’m often lost in reflections,
I now see beyond the surface,
Not easily excited,
Quick to HEAR, SLOW SPEAK, SLOW to WRATH, Yet I’m full of LIFE and OPTIMISM;
I have HOPEFUL EXPECTATION of GOOD in Christ JESUS ALWAYS.
Have an INSPIRED NEW YEAR.
