Joy in Suffering?

whatjoy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

How could there be joy in suffering,
what good can come from pain?
How can there be rejoicing,
when there’s only loss, and not gain?

How could there be thanksgiving,
what good can come from tribulation?
How can there be gratefulness,
when there’s only deep affliction?

How could there be praise,
what good can come from misery?
How can there be worship,
when there’s no longer liberty?

How could there be gladness,
what good can come from persecution?
How can there be happiness,
when there’s some facing execution?

How could there be joy in suffering,
what good can come from all this pain?
Ah, is it because we believe . . .
one day, Jesus will come to reign?

1 Peter 1:6-7

“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:”

King James Version

Be of Good Cheer ~

In this fallen world,
we’ll have pain and sorrow
but Jesus came to give us
a brighter tomorrow.

Oh, there’ll be days of defeat,
trials along with persecution
but Jesus came to overcome
the turmoil and confusion.

He knew we’d have troubles,
many worries and cares
but He came to comfort
and our burdens He does bear.

We’ll have grief and tragedy,
illnesses and disease
but He came to restore
and to set our minds at ease.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have pain and sorrow
but be of good cheer . . .
Jesus overcame our tomorrow!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 16:33
King James Version

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Our Hope!

God's Got This used with permission IBible Verses

Searching for a new job,
can’t buy any gas?
Don’t know how much longer,
your last tank will last?

Can’t pay the mortgage,
kids need new shoes?
Feeling like you’ve paid,
more than your dues?

Health insurance expired,
can’t afford to get sick?
Sensing you’re up against,
a perpetual brick?

Life seems unfair,
can’t find your direction?
Too many unpaid bills,
too many, to even mention?

Tough times like these,
we all sometimes go through
but if we turn to Jesus
He’ll show us what to do.

He’ll give us the strength,
to manage and to cope
for when we trust Jesus
there is faith and hope!

Philippians 4:12-13
King James Version

“I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full
and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Rejoice, I Say Rejoice!

Rejoice in Hope used with permission Doorstop Verses facebook

Rejoice, I say rejoice,
in everything have hope
don’t just sit around
lest you turn into a mope.

See how content I am,
see that look on my face
that’s the look of patience
for I’m resting in God’s grace.

I know the importance,
to pray about everything
so I don’t worry about
what tomorrow’s gonna bring.

Rejoice, I say rejoice,
be patient in all tribulation
pray to the Lord of your hope
and join me in my jubilation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:12
King James Version

“Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer;”
