We know that You can hear us,
each time we kneel and pray.
and that by studying Your Word
we learn what You have to say.

No matter what the problems,
be they many or be they few,
we were created while in their midst,
to bring the greatest glory to You.

So when the road is dark
and the way made not so clear,
we will recall Your promises
and thus dispel all fear.

Before we were created,
You knew the details of each day,
and all the trials and tribulations
that we would face along the way.

Already having all the answers
to the questions we would ask,
You have provided all that we need
to fulfill our spiritual tasks.

The answers are not kept secret,
they are all written in Your Book.
Before the striking of the storm,
is the time for us to look.

Itís true that the darker the adversity,
the more faith it takes to believe,
but this only makes His answers
that more precious when received.

So when there seems to be no answers,
or the pain feels too great to bear,
we can have the peace surpassing,
knowing the answer is always there.

Nice poem, weak on topic but enjoyable sentiment. Keep writing.

I really liked your poem; however, (there seems to always be a "however", right?) the difficult part is to FIND that answer that is supposedly ALWAYS there. For me, it just doesn't happen; but your poetry is extremely well written, and I wish I had the faith that you have. Enjoyed the read and am fascinated by real, true, rhyming-type poetry. Well done! Enjoyed the read and the message.

Very lovely sentiments, with a much to ponder.

I tripped up in the meter a bit, but it could just be me.

Enjoyed this very much.

I don't read a lot of poetry, but I found this one very well done. It seemed on topic to me and I thought it had a great message. Keep up the great work!
