Coping with my Pain
The pain most times I am able to bare;
Yet there are times, I fail to share.
I try to be strong, til it goes away;
In tears with faith, I kneel to pray.
As I set my mind on the Lord above,
My heart is filled with so much love.
Knowing He is always caring for me,
Safe with Him I know I’ll always be.
As my thoughts turn from pain to Him,
I forget the pain I once felt within.
Thank you, Lord, for helping me once more,
On the wings of your love, I freely soar.
By Debra Kay Micetich, 12/05/2010. Debra has suffered with chronic pain and clinical depression due to scoliosis.
She shared the following with us here at Rest Ministries:
I have been receiving your e-mails for some time. I have been blessed in many ways despite the pain I suffer on daily basis. God truly has given me a gift that I love and that is reading and sometimes even writing. I have never had anything published, it’s just something I use to reach out to those I want to encourage or care about so I thought I would share a few of the many, many poems I have written as I feel this may be a calling from the Lord.
I am woman who has grown living a life full of adversity and I wouldn’t trade any of it for the woman it has made me today. A woman who can pass on the love and lessons I have learned to others seeking their self-worth and security in themselves because you see, I can see them through the eyes of a loving Savior, so thank you God for making me who I am. I am submitting one as a sample, I have never been published, I just want to share out of love for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as I identify with so many of the people I have read about through your devotionals.
