This is well-structured, and your point is a good one, very meaningful.

A few suggestions: break down the larger paragraphs into smaller ones, and watch out for mixed metaphors and well-known phrases. The fresher your writing is, the more likely you are to get readers to stick with it until the end.

I particularly enjoyed your last paragraph, and I appreciated this devotional.

Amen! I agree with your precepts about rising above your emotions to turn sadness into a meaningful work, which benefits others. The next time, I attempt to throw myself a pity party, I will remember your advice.

Very good. Nice use of the verse and a great author's voice here. Keep 'em comin'.
