I am in awe. This wonderful poem is obviously authored by someone who has a deep and beautiful understanding of great personal need and great divine healing. What an inspiration to put control into the Savior's hands! This one will stay with me.
This is a masterpiece. Very deep, very powerful, very inspiring! I will remember your message - especially how "determination" was crucial to turn the tide. God was there, waiting to resurrect all that pain on the other side! All praise and glory and honor to Him for being IN CONTROL!!!

Wow. Just, Wow.

This was a wonderful journey, from the depths of despair to God's amazing hope and strength.

Wonderful ebb and flow, wonderful transition, so subtle and yet so powerful, from the misery to the joy.

It is when we are weak, we are strong.

EXCELLENT! Very well done!

What an awesome journey through the stages and depth and despair of illness to health, physical and spiritual. And not a forced rhyme to be seen. Well done. Yeggy
