Choosing Joy by Raymond A. Foss

In the midst of this storm
choosing joy, every day
knowing what there is now
the trials he is facing;
the end too soon, terminal;
but knowing where he is going
at peace in that promise.

Trusting God for the day to day
choosing joy instead of pity
witnessing to Christ, by his walk
in the way he lives, day to day
projecting that joy, the love of Christ
that promise of life eternal
to all he meets, choosing joy.
