This is not defeat

This is not defeat,
it’s a bridge,
over the raging river
in which you might have drowned.

This is not defeat,
it’s a landslide,
which fell to create a pass
where none existed through the mountains.

This is not defeat,
this is an earthquake,
a jagged arrow pointing the way
toward solid ground.

Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid. Do I act for God? Don’t you see, you planned evil against me but God used those same plans for my good, as you see all around you right now—life for many people. Easy now, you have nothing to fear; I’ll take care of you and your children.” He reassured them, speaking with them heart-to-heart. Genesis 50:19-21 The Message
