“Opportunity In Adversity”

Adversity brings opportunity so I embrace all black storms.
I see it as an amazing platform.
I may fall, bright days may stall, but I’m not done now.
No blues as I’m renewed when tears come down.

Sometimes you win when you lose,
And you lose when you win.
Everything just prepares you for when it happens again.
Success is found in valleys,
And told from the peak,
And we talk about those times gladly,
At rallies when we speak.

It takes grit and amazing grace,
To show no hurt when you’ve been hit in the face.
When you fall down it’s a chance to get up,
Show your character and prove you’re big stuff!
You can be quenched or you can live your life thirsty,
Either way I hope you find the opportunity in adversity.
