When Life…

When life toils
I rest.
Rest in the knowledge
of hope.

When life spins
I wait
Wait in the assurance
of faith.

When life rains a storm
I still.
Still in the confidence
of trust.

When life discourages
I console.
Console in the solace
of grace.

When life destroys
I create
Create in the prepare
of certainty.

When life fears
I conquer
Conquer in the sureness
of courage.

When life defeats
I divulge.
Divulge in the essence
of triumph.

When life closes in
I choose.
Choose to open myself
to overcome.

When life presents itself
To me.
I present myself
To life.
