Feeling pretty good, are you?
Then how does this feel, huh?
Think you did well, eh?
Well, how about a dose of humiliation?
Are you happy now?
OK – let’s see you smile about this!
Getting ahead, doing well?
Not so fast, buster…
How you gonna dig yourself out of this one?
What makes you think it will ever be over?
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
