It was meant to be

Soul Snack 115/11 ... It was meant to be

Shattered expectations that shake the entire person with disappointment have pursued us all. Not one is a stranger to a heart of hope that has been dashed with hollowness.

Enjoy these stirring reflections from a twelve year old who lives her faith and is in touch with her soul.

She is a young lady who is both Grayce by name and grace by nature.


It was meant to be
A day to shine
A light of recognition
On those who deserve it most.

It was meant to be
A moment of love;
A moment to reveal
A better way of life.

Instead it was
A day of neglect;
A day when all that was
Beautiful wilted into nothing.

Instead it was
A moment of hatred;
A moment to tear down
Everything that was good.

And in the middle
Of it all
I reached out
A finger to touch hope.

And in the middle
Of it all I touched
My face streaked
With tears.

And in the middle
Of it all I bowed
My head
And prayed.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. (Ps 40:2)
