That which springs forth

When we hear only

what we want to believe; the

mind not willing or open to receive

words of truth so as not to distort

things we don’t understand or fail to perceive

God allows those times in our life

when through storms and trials we come face to face

with that which confronts us from trouble all around

and we don’t know where to turn or find such a place

of refuge, peace, calm or resolve

but, from out of the heart and life will spring forth

that which we need most; it is called hope
