Beautiful Joyce

June 18, 2010 – 10:38pm Ugandan time

Last night I think I met the most beautiful young woman I’ve ever met in my entire life.  

Joyce

Orphaned by AIDS
As it kills her too
Only 17 years of life thus far
God alone knows how many remain

 

She sits in pain
Stands in pain
IS in pain
Consequences from choices
Someone else made

 

Days tick by
Pain increases
Yet, Joyce finds that joy her name suggests

 

The guitar chords pierce the air
Her beautiful voice rings out into the night sky
Her heart sings:

 

“Draw me close to you
Never let  me go…
Lord, You’re all I want
You’re all I’ve ever needed
You’re all I want
Help me know you are near”

 

Peace
Only for a moment
But peace

 

Body
Mind
Soul
At peace

 

At peace in her Savior
Who is always near
