Post ~~~~~Encouraging Poem~~~~~ stepping Stones

The Lord came to me in a dream one day and asked,"Why do you sorrow?" I answered,"Lord my life is full of pain, I can't face one more tomorrow."

The Lord sat down beside me, and gently took my hand. He said,' Let me explain to you and then you'll understand.

Each sorrow is a stepping stone you must surmount each day. And every stepping stone you climb is a sorrow that's passed away.

The road of life is a moutainside with crevices in which to be caught, but as you struggle on your way, I the rock, will lend support.

Every stepping stone you climb, makes spirit and heart grow strong, Exercising character and faith this road seems painfull and long.

The way is paved with stepping stones, to uplift your heart and soul. Though difficult they aide your way to a city paved of gold.

I know that you are tired, for I too have walked this way, My sorrows did they multiply, but I cleared many stones away.

I left my rock to lift you up, I left behind my story. to give you strengh to make your climb, to that special place in glory.

And never fear, the rock is hear. You'll never climb this moutain alone Surmount life's sorrows, and continue on, for they are but stepping stones.
