It’s a Fact of Life

Some days are hard, and I long for them to end.

I just want tomorrow to come and start over.

It’s a fact of life.


Some days are easy, and I hope they last.

I want tomorrow to never come and today to stay.

It’s a fact of life.


Some days are madness, and I don’t even know what has happened.

I have no thought for tomorrow because it has been so busy.

It’s a fact of life.


Some days are mundane, and I long for events and distraction.

I hurry tomorrow along and anticipate the calendar holdings.

It’s a fact of life.


Some days I cry, and the why is known and the why is not.

Tomorrow will hold answers, or maybe it won’t. 

It’s a fact of life.


Some days I laugh, and the joy is overwhelming.

Tomorrow will be amazing when framed in this mindset.

It’s a fact of life.


But every day, He is in control and is seated on the throne. Every day He has me in mind, and He wants what is best for me.

Every single day, He wipes my tears, restores my soul, and rejoices with me.

Every day He is with me, walks beside me, sings over me, goes before and behind me. Not just on some days, but every day, He loves me. He is for me, not against me. He is my strength and my shield; He is the joy of my salvation and my anchor in the storm. The only some day where He is concerned is that someday, He is coming back for me. It’s a fact of life.
