If We Could See

If we could see beyond a sorrow
Beyond a present grief, as God can see
We would be braver, knowing some tomorrow
Will still hold happiness for you and me

If we could only glimpse through other eyes
To see the things that is God’s plan and design
We would be more strong and would be keeping
In our hearts, peace and hope through every darkened time

If we could see beyond blurred eyes and weeping
Knowing again the road will smooth before our eyes
By putting our full trust in God and his promises
The lessons of life will unfold to make us wise

We are so blinded by our grief and heartache 
The suffering of so much sickness, sorrow and pain
That we forget the joys beyond believing
God’s promise of healing and peace will be ours again

I'd like to put up a little Update on my health issues. I haven't mentioned anything on here in a long while but I'm still struggling so to speak. My Adrenal Glands went down back in 2016 and now all of my glands are out of whack all due to them not being able to get me balanced out on any meds. after they removed my thyroid in 2014. It's an every day struggle and I'm not able to do much anymore. I now have Home health coming in once a day to help me with my baths, etc. I know God is the great Physician and it's in his hands. Just got back today from yet another Appt. with the Endocrinoligist and she's setting up more tests to try and find out if I now have one or more other Autoimmune Diseases as well.  Our health is so important and it can go in the blink of an eye. I'm grateful to God for waking me up to see another day every morning and it's in his hands. He still has us all here for a reason and he's not going to let us down. I cling to him every day. Please continue to pray for me and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  May God bless you all. ~Susie~


  1. Thinking of you, Susie. Keeping you in my prayers. I hope you feel better soon.

  2. I'm so very sorry you still aren't feeling well. Love you, dear Susie.

  3. Oh Susie, I'm going through some things right now, and this poem means the world to me. Thank you, dear friend. I'm so sorry you're suffering with your health right now. May God comfort you and I hope you get well soon. This was truly a beautiful post. Thinking of you tonight and sending my love.


  4. I love this one, Susie! It will minister to so many. You're right, of course, none of us enjoy the struggle, but it is so often necessary to our development, just as the butterfly must struggle out of the cocoon to spread his wings and fly. I pray you walk through this valley of sickness soon and emerge on the hillside full of life and health and vitality! Love you, my friend.

  5. I have missed you, Susie, but I truly understand... Health problems do take their toll. God Bless You ---and I pray that you can find some peace and understanding through all of your pain. God Bless You.
