This poem was written to inspire persevering during dark times by relying on a power inside that is greater than we could ever imagine as we stay focused on the Way of the Lord rather than worldly pleasures.
Press on during dark times And get closer to the Lord Rather than on worldly pleasures That keep you off guard. Giving a little extra Changes everything So dig a little further Into what faith does bring. An extra hour each day Changes the temperature Going through the seasons From winter to summer. So does an extra hour Of daily devotion Warm the heart each day And sets your faith in motion. For warmer days ahead, Get on the path that is clear And step ahead each day As you persevere.
