Why must I weep when others sing?

To test the deeps of suffering.


Why must I work while others rest?

To spend my strength at God’s request.


Why must I lose while others gain?

To understand  defeat’s sharp pain.


Why must this lot of life be mine

When that which fairer seems is thine?

Because God knows what plans for me will blossom in eternity. 

(SITD, March 7)


One thought on “Why?

  1. I love Streams in the Desert, and found your blog by trying to find the author of this beautiful verse. Going to read some more, looks like we are on the same page so far. Blessings, Lyn
