Hurt and Victory



It is paradoxical, but so true,
We can hurt and be victorious too…
When resting in our Shepherd’s tender care,
We have a foundation that’s always there –
A foundation of faith and peace in Him –
A Light within that shall never grow dim.

During times of grief, when all looks so bleak,
An underlying joy sustains God’s sheep;
Jesus Christ, our Great Shepherd, lives within –
Our strong Anchor, our Rock, our Dearest Friend.
Yes, it is paradoxical, but true…
We can hurt and have the victory too.




“For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also
aboundeth by Christ.” “Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(IICo 1:5; I Co 15:57)
