The Big Picture

Are we so overcome,
by the trials we endure?
That our focus is blurred,
in the One we are sure.

We see our current problems,
as larger than life.
Then we question has God forgotten us,
in all this strife.

We wonder, doesn’t God see,
what I’m going through?
Will I have to go it alone,
in the things that I do?

Forgotten... you are not,
but loved you are!
But no one escapes a world,
of sin...
 without a few scars.

Dark seasons still visit,
 the most pure at heart.
For even the heroes of the faith,
endured their part.

Paul was beheaded,
Peter was upside down crucified.
Let us never forget... Christ Himself,
suffered horribly and died.

We sometimes forget,
there is a big picture to be gained.
So be not deceived beloved,
you labor not in vain.

Fear not, for I am with you;
   be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
   I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
                         Isaiah 41:10
