In our darkest times, when we are facing difficult trials and impossible hardships, poetry can uplift, encourage and strengthen us in Christ.
I Write for You presents a poetic depiction of author Sophia Campbell’s spiritual journey during one of her greatest health challenges. Inspired by conversations with God and deep meditations, she searches for answers, guidance, and strength. In the midst of our pain, Christ, through his brokenness and death, won the great battle; therefore we are able to rejoice amid our troubles. Our journey is tiny in comparison to the great victory won for us.
Then I see you again, on the cross this time,
bloodied, with a sorrowful crown on your head,
a sword pierced in your side.
It is then that I’m reminded of your victory for me.
A surge of hope and victory rushes through my veins.
They captivate me; I am drenched with your love.
I rejoice; laughter gushes fourth like mighty waves on my lips.
Oh yes, sweet victory you won already on the cross.
