Suffering falls on both the good and the bad
Causing discomfort and pain that is sad
But He Who allows knows what is the best
That can only come through tempest or test.
Going through the fire ruffles but refines
But the grace to pass comes from the Great Vine
His Word comforts, strengthens, reveals His mind
For us to keep calm and His solace find.
Job suffered, endured and was promoted:
Paul, beaten, imprisoned, but mighty used.
Jesus- the Righteous- was crucified but glorified
So you and I will suffer since we’re justified.
“O Lord, help me stand strong will a song
With a character, shinning and not wrong
Teach me to hold Your hand, see through Your eyes.
Lord, hear my call, hear my prayers, hear my cries.”
