Divine Pain

“It is through poverty that Divine riches are known;

it is through ignorance that Divine wisdom is known;

it is through loneliness that Divine company is known;

it is through confusion that Divine faith is known;

it is through rejection that Divine acceptance is known;

it is through weariness that Divine endurance is known;

that we obtain Divine guide and Divine control

and all is known through, oh blessed, and divine pain.”
