Temporary Troubles ~

Temporary Trouble ~l CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Though they may be temporary,
my troubles still do weigh . . .
on my heart, they are heavy
on my soul, they yet prey.

When God needs my attention,
I feel  like I’m on fire
but, He is only testing my faith
and the depth of my desire.

So, He puts me in the furnace,
to refine me like gold
He uses the potter’s wheel
so His image He can mold.

He uses His Word as a bridle,
to keep me on the straight path
He prunes and He trims
so I may never know His wrath.

He places me in dark valleys,
to see the world’s wickedness
He puts me in arid places
so I’ll thirst after righteousness.

Though they may be temporary,
my troubles still do weigh . . .
but, I know they will bring me
into a glorious new day!

2 Corinthians 4:17
King James Version

“For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
 worketh for us a far more exceeding
and eternal weight of glory;”

There Will Be Times ~

worthgold-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There will be times,
we’ll go through the fire
a season of heaviness
so God, can lift us higher.

God tries us as He pleases,
puts our faith to the test
a season where we learn
what He deems for us is best.

Trials and temptation,
refines us better than gold
a season to break free
from the world’s mold.

Troubles will come,
He’ll not spare the rod
seasons like these
brings glory to God.

There will be times,
God takes us through the fire
so our faith to others . . .
will awe and inspire!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1.6-7
King James Version

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,

if need be, ye are in heaviness
through manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious

than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,

might be found unto praise
and honour and glory

at the appearing of Jesus Christ:”
