HER WITNESS

"I wrote this poem about my neighbor who was battling cancer."

God, please tell this woman
That the people looking on
See a deep abiding faith
And a spirit that is strong

All which stem from knowing Jesus
As the anchor of her soul
And a trust defying sight
As she seeks to be made whole

Through debilitating illness
And a devastating loss
She has chosen to be faithful
To her God at any cost

Just the parting from her children
By itself would break her heart
And require all the mercy
And the grace that God imparts

As she clings to all the promises
Written in your word
Laying claim on a new body
And the home of which she's heard

It's a mystery and amazing
That our heart can be at rest
And a peace can come upon us
Though we lose what we love best

Tell this woman that her witness
Is astounding to us all
As we see your grace and glory
Being evidenced to all
