How can we keep going in the face of such darkness?

Secret Strength

Do you wonder how?

we are pressed on every side,

we are pressed on every side, but not crushed.

we are not crushed.

perplexed,

perplexed, but not despairing.

we are not despairing.

rejected,

rejected, but not alone.

we are not alone.

knocked down,

knocked down, but never destroyed.

we are never destroyed.

Our secret: we have a treasure

Our secret: we have a treasure (the life of God)

Our secret: we have a treasure hidden in cracked pottery

Our secret: we have a treasure hidden in cracked pottery (that's us

Our secret: we have a treasure hidden in cracked pottery (that's us and all our humanness)

Our secret: we have a treasure hidden in cracked pottery to show

Our secret: we have a treasure hidden in cracked pottery to show that the strength you see in us

Our secret: we have a treasure hidden in cracked pottery to show that the strength you see in us is from God himself.

This treasure inside

This treasure inside (the life of God)

This treasure inside is strong enough

This treasure inside is strong enough to transform us

This treasure inside is strong enough to transform us comprehensively,

This treasure inside is strong enough to transform us comprehensively, body and soul.

That's how

That's how we are not crushed

That's how we are not crushed, not despairing

That's how we are not crushed, not despairing, not alone

That's how we are not crushed, not despairing, not alone, never destroyed.

That's how

That's how our bodies are always dying,

That's how our bodies are always dying, but inside we are coming to life.

That's how we are coming to life.

Thank you for reading this poem. It is based closely on the words of 2 Corinthians 4:7-10. Jesus faced deep darkness, and overcame it. It is his life in us that enables us to do the same.
