A poem by Patricia Usiobaifu,  a member of Women’s Apostolic Alliance.

This short poem focuses on on how God sees us and our circumstances as opposed to how we often view them.

In the midst of hurt, betrayal, tears and pain

I have cried out to God, again and again

For direction, answers, wisdom to come

For a way to move forward from what has been done

In the silence that followed, I came to realise

That God sees this very differently through His eyes

He sees opportunity to triumph, stretch and grow

Opportunities to overcome and for love and grace to flow

He sees me not as a victim but as a victor

Some one who can rise above

Someone who can answer hate and hurt, with His unfailing love.
