All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

I walk by Faith, not by sight


I tried to stand, but could not
So I knelt before Your throne
Breathing in, breathing out

I went to You in prayer
I laid my sorrows at Your feet
You eased my hurt and heartache

Fresh strength you bestowed me
I felt your peace and love
I rose from my knees

And I held my head high
For in You I know
I can fight through another day
With You by my side, I will stand

I think from simply reading the poem you can tell me state of mind.

This is cool---an empowering poem! Really great! A poem that everyone can relate and read when they're feeling down or not so strong.

"In the end, it's still best to wait for the one we want rather than settle for what's available. It's still best to wait for the one you love rather than to settle for the one who's around. It's still best to wait for the right person, because life's too short to waste on the wrong one."

I loved it. :) I like the picture to go along as well. if you have time please read some of mine
