Success lies in your hand

by Rustum
(University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines)

Look ahead…
Don’t be bothered of the past
For its gone and it will never come back
Put that in your mind and heart.
Look straight
Face the new challenge that you have
Don’t be anxious of what will happen
Tomorrow has its own problem at hand.
Just rest
If you are tired
Share it to someone who can listen
But if you can’t find anyone
There’s a friend, who will never let you down
Just don’t forget the name… JESUS
Give your strength
To what you’re doing
And be happy to what you’ve done
Even if you fail… rejoice
‘Coz through it… you will overcome
Don’t let loneliness and pain
Overwhelm your courage and faith
For it’s always there, pushing you down
Just be strong and be firm.
Tomorrow is in your hand
Shape it according to your plan
Do the best, to the thing that need to be done,
For success lies in your hand.

I read your poem over and over again because it toughed the core of my experience! I have been down and was lifted up by Jesus! To read it from you was by itself outstanding! Thanks for the uplift and may you gain solace and blessings from it as i did. Amen. Remain blessed.
