I am still standing



I am still standing,
After all the worries that confronted me,
My hopes and sources,
Of all happiness dwindled,
Into oblivion,
It's my faith in God, that sustained me,
It's God's abundant care,
That converts a caterpillar,
Into a butterfly,
When my world came crashing by,
I came out of my brokeness,
Through God's love,
God works in awesome ways.;
To perform His wonders.
