Victory Near

When the forgiven learn to forgive,
When the poor give everything away,
When the broken learn to mend,
That’s when Jesus has his way.

When the striving let go,
When the conflicted surrender,
When we befriend our foes,
Then our hearts become tender.

When all seems to be defeat,
When expectations don’t meet,
When sorrows grow, with tales of woe,
Then our victory is near.

Paradoxes (2)

I smile through my tears,
I laugh through my fears,
I have joy when I’m sad,
You may think I am mad!

Life is a paradox;
We can’t put it in a box.
God will do what He wants,
Though the devil may taunt.

I am strong when I’m weak,
I have power when I’m meek.
No joy without pain,
No gain without strain.

Paradoxes

I swallowed the bitter pill,
And it became sweet in my mouth.

I lowered myself,
And I was exalted.

I forgave my prison warden
(from the prison that I and others had built for me),
And I was liberated.

I cried tears of grief,
And God put a new song in my mouth.
