I am pressed-in with troubles on every side.  I have suffered embarrassments, public failure.

But I am not crushed.

I am perplexed, unable to find my own way out.

But I am not in despair.

I am persecuted, the enemy has been hunting me down.

But I am not abandoned by God.  Never once have I ever walked alone {singing!}.

I’ve been struck down, knocked flat over.

But I have not been destroyed, nor broken beyond repair.

We can sum it thus:

I am not crushed.  I am not in despair. I am not abandoned.  I have never walked alone.  I have not been destroyed.  I am repairable.

This is good news.  And the rock-solid Word of the Lord!
