From Pain... to Praise

We have all walked,
through the valley of the shadow.
Some times we won,
and sometimes we lost.

But Jesus was always with us,
even if we didn't recognize Him.
He was there,
to console our loss.

We saw only the pain,
through our times of travail.
It's so hard to see anything at all,
when it's your time to wail.

But without the pain,
it's hard to appreciate true praise.
From the places we've been,
through the steps of our days. 

Did we overcome our pain,
through our emotions and flesh?
Or was it the hand of the Master,
that reached down,
 and renewed us afresh.

Where we're headed,
pain cannot follow.
Nor sorrow, nor despair,
nor... tears that wallow.

Dear Lord, 
let our pain, of the past.
 Fuel our praise's today!
For only in You Lord,
does pain pass away!

I like it much, although we face some challenges and pains in our life but still God is there He never forgets us no matter what and with this I remember the famous "Footprints in the Sand". Good job!
