TPT4KC This Week!

Yesterday on the radio, I heard part of a poem by Helen Steiner Rice and I thought, wow!  That would be perfect for our cancer families to hear!  So, I'm going to use it as my intro today, as in reading the entire poem, it is even more fitting!  I hope you like it and use it as the inspiration for your prayers for our little warriors because this time in treatment is truly just a bend in the road.

The End of the Road is But a Bend in the Road - Helen Steiner Rice

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the "song has ended"--
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended,

Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying,
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying--

There's but one place to go and that is to God
And, dropping all pretense and pride,
We can pour out our problem without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side--

And together we stand at life's crossroads
And view what we think is the end,
But God has a much bigger vision
And he tells us it's only a bend--

For the road goes on and is smoother,
And the "pause in the song" is a "rest,"
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best--

So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load,
Your work is not finished or ended,
You've just come to "a bend in the road."
