Smile Through the Tears

by Felia Bante (32nd Batch)

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26

There came a time in my life
That I was crushed deeply and was so hurt
I sorrowfully cried and shut my eyes
And all I wanted was just to watch myself die.

Hope was gone and tears closed my vision
To see another door that God has opened
Painfully I continued to doubt and fear
But God’s divine love gave me courage to dry my tears.

As I slowly opened my eyes to look up
I beheld God’s glory and felt ashamed of myself
How faithless I was and how selfish
To give Him just even little confidence!

Then to God I offered the life that I used so unwisely
I submitted myself to whatever plans He had for me
And let Him mold me to the person He wants me to be
For He knows best and His grace is sufficient for me.

Now I can sing praises to Him in the midst of sorrows
I can still feel gladness amidst my infirmities
For as long as I’m in the Lord’s side, there’s nothing I should fear
‘Cause it’s He alone who can make me smile through the tears!
