In The Midst Of It All.

If you are in the midst of doing something, you are doing it at the moment. You go through trial and tribulations and at the end of it all, you win. Many a times, I thought (and my team as well) that we are going around in circle, with no end in luck in sight. We preserved and preserved. We knocked on different doors and made passionate pleas, but to no avail most of the time.

Throughout those struggles we never despaired or despaired. We kept moving and with the hope one day, things will fall into place; one by one. We are not there yet, but slowly but surely, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. It is true when they say, the journey of thousand miles, start with one simple step.

It has not been only as a result of our intelligence, hard work, dedication, commitment and the right mindset but through the Power and Will of the Man Above. As I was planning to write this piece, I got reminded and the song by Yolanda Adams, kept playing on my mind. Finally IT made sense that we have and we will continue to triumph in the midst of it all.

Here are the Lyrics (only the Chorus quoted) of Yolanda Adams and hope they inspire everyone who is going hard and trying times:


I’ve come through many hard trials
Though temptations on every hand
Though Satan’s tried to stop me
And to place my feet on sinking sand
Through the pain and all of my sorrows
Through the tears and all my fears
The lord was there to keep me
For he’s kept me in the midst of it all

Not because I’ve been so faithful
Not because I’ve always obeyed
No it’s not because I trusted him
To be with me all of the way
But it’s because he loves me so dearly
He was there to answer my calls
He was there always to protect me
For he’s kept me in the midst of it all
