Though it's painful to confess,
And it's many years in coming
But by pain I have been blessed.
Though I simply can't avoid it
And I often just complain,
Still the pain became my master
And a daily constant drain.
When I want to shed this body,
When the pain becomes too strong,
It is then I turn to Jesus,
And for Him I simply long.
It is then with Him I linger
And my arms reach to embrace,
And it's then my prayers for others
Oft find tears track down my face.
And the pain makes me dependent,
Yes, I'm helpless, I confess,
But with Jesus in the painful
I have found I'm truly blessed.
Through this pain has come my writing,
A source of pure delight,
A way to thus encourage
Giving others hope to fight.
Fighting fears and battling worries,
Waging war with grief and pain,
Words that lead them all to Jesus,
Reminding all it's not in vain.
So the pain has been a blessing
Though I often do not see
That when I asked God to bless me
It was pain He gave to me.
