Weird Strength

There’s a weird Strength about the Holy Spirit, Strength to love those you don’t like, Strength to keep quiet when you want to thrash someone, Strength to keep going on even when no one sees you, Strength to fight the same battles over and over again, Strength when the ones you counted on let you down, Strength to be Okay, even when everything is definitely not Okay at all, Strength to smile even when your heart is shattered, Strength to continue even when it is hopeless. I have faced disappointments that have derailed me, And when no one understood why my heart hurt, He did. He always does. When I lost my Purpose and myself in the process, He understood, When I couldn’t come to terms with reality, He understood, When the tears kept flowing down in the dark of the night, He understood, When I didn’t wanna live anymore, He understood. And then He gave me strength, just enough to get me through that crisis. And the older I get, The different seasons of my life only prove I will never be in absolute control, That I am gonna hurt people just by being me, And that people are gonna hurt me just by being themselves. There’s always gonna be crisis, heartache and disappointments in life. But then, The Holy Spirit is always gonna be there too! And that assurance gives me strength for today, A weird kinda strength – Where nothing is okay and everything is just fine. Psalms 34:18 NIV The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. https://psalm.bible/psalm-34-18
