When Pain and Faith Collide

When pain and faith collide
The one absorbs the other.
But not without an impact
That shakes us to the core.

We walk as if omnipotent
Forgetting that we’re frail.
Until that faithful moment
We’re broken, hurt, and sore.

It can come in many ways,
But never goes unnoticed.
As with perfect strategy
It weakens where we’re strong.

Our thoughts become unclear
When hit while unaware.
And brings to mind our sins,
As we barely scrape along.

Then in our shaken voice
Our faith lets out a groan.
And thunders cross the heavens,
As by Him it’s supplied.

For faith is the power
That overcomes the world.
And the one absorbs the other
When pain and faith collide.

Doug,
I like the poem. It is good in almost all of life's chaotic moments.
It is great to know that the pain is only temporary, but faith is forever.
T.A.
