Midnight Motivations and Musings # 78


Now and again, I read articles that people write or listen to people where they sound as if there’s nothing good about their lives.

I have been privy to desperate cries of help and despair, but what saddens me is not the desperation, what saddens me is when the despairing soul feels so hopeless that they’ve given up hope on themselves, that no amount of counsel and reasoning seems to penetrate.

No one is guaranteed a breezy life that’s not laden with struggles, for it’s out of our tests that we obtain our testimonies.

The truth is that no one can walk through individual tribulations for another. No two people have the same mantle or message, but what they can do is to hold your hand while you wade through the mess.

Sometimes, you may not even be fortunate to find someone to hold on to. You hold on to God. He’s the ultimate fortress, refuge and present help in the time of need.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Brand me whole as only you can

That the entire score of me

Knows nothing but the fullness of you.

  1. This is very timely, Jackie. I just wrote an article about me going through my so-called midlife crisis and I saw this. Made me tear up. Thanks for this!

    1. It’s really a deep pleasure if any of these words inspires someone which is its main objective. I know how tough mid-life crisis can be and its stress should never be undermined. You will get through it and will be a testimony and guide to others behind you. I will check out your posts.

  2. You make a lot of sense. Everyone in life goes through different struggles, but at the end of the day we must be thankful for what we have and be thankful that we have a loving god. God bless and good luck with your book.
