“They were at their wit’s end, then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress.”  Ps 107:27-28

We know that many, like us, are often challenged by the events and circumstances that hinder us and even cause us to question if we have heard the Father’s voice correctly.  When promises are declared but detained in their fulfillment, it is very easy to become discouraged and lose hope.  We must learn how to avoid this pitfall.  Here  is a poem written by Antoinette Wilson that continues to encourage us.  We hope it will do that for you as well. 

Are you standing at Wit’s End Corner”,
Christian, with troubled brow?
Are you thinking of what is before you,

And all you are bearing now?
Does all the world seem against you,
And you in the battle alone?
Remember – at Wit’s End Corner”
Is just where God’s power is shown.

Are you standing at “Wit’s End Corner”,
Blinded with wearying pain,
Feeling you cannot endure it,
You cannot bear the strain,
Bruised through the constant suffering,
Dizzy, and dazed and numb?
Remember – at “Wit’s End Corner”
Is where Jesus loves to come.

Are you standing at “Wit’s End Corner”?
Your work before you spread,
All lying begun, unfinished,
And pressing on heart and head,
Longing for strength to do it,
Stretching out trembling hands?
Remember – at “Wit’s End Corner”
The Burden-bearer stands.

Are you standing at “Wit’s End Corner”?
Then you’re just in the very spot
To learn the wondrous resources
Of Him who fails you not:
No doubt to a brighter pathway
Your footsteps will soon be moved,
But only at “Wit’s End Corner”
Is the “God who is able” proved.
