Becoming Strong


It’s so strange how I stumbled over, kicked around and complained so loudly
About all those aggravating obstacles strewn throughout my life. I walked proudly
In the way I understood as the correct way and I really thought
That the right way would ensure a smooth way! What life wrought!

Life requires exercise of our spiritual body to give it mighty strength
To transport our life to every, every width and every length.
Only spirit-building exercises will make our spirits strong!
And for many of us, that process will seem oh so long!
