Bouncing from frustration’s grim aftermath
My faith ascends to withstand, cope and face
Praising God for bestowed triumphant* grace
As brave warrior surmounting failure’s wrath.
Recovering from well-being's distress
Amidst hypertension diagnosis
My heart shines for radiant prognosis
Cleaving to Christ, my Lord, the great fortress.
Blest with hope, propped by enlightenment-gain
My soul prevails to learn from wisdom’s wealth
Treasuring eternal lessons of divine health
To share bliss, love, and peace, never in vain.
Propped for inevitable storm's arrival
My will marches on steadfastly fervent
Trusting the Lord Who controls each event
Victorious still, beyond mere survival.
Grateful to overcome personal battles
While reaching-out to those in pain with care
My spirit remains joyous against despair
Braced by the Saviour, vanquishing rattles.
*2Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ…
