Pain before Beauty

Life was an ocean of bliss.
Everything was smooth sailing,
Her food was served on a silver platter,
And she had plenty of money to spare.
She could buy her happiness
As well as beauty and friends.
Until the doctors were stumped by her symptoms.
All the money in the world could not save her now.

She writhed away in pain,
No one could understand what she was feeling.
As she prayed in desperation, in full reliance on God,
He touched her life,
And changed what once was bitter
Into a beautiful piece of art.
No one would look at her in awe of her fame and power,
But they would give glory to God for the beauty that was her life.

This is part of an ongoing series I will be continuing throughout the week. Stay posted, lovelies.
