Thing’s I Can’t Handle ~

I’ve heard people simply say,
God will not give me
anything I can’t handle . . .
but, with them I don’t agree.

For, I’ve looked in my Bible,
and saw how I’d be tested
once my life in Jesus . . .
became fully invested.

He said I’d face tribulation,
that I would be persecuted
and for my faith in Him
I could even be executed.

He said I’d have trials,
many worries and cares
that my very own cross
daily I’d have to bear.

So, when people tell me this,
I look right into their eyes . . .
and tell them I can’t handle things
unless His strength I excise!

through Christ
which strengtheneth me.”

This is A Test ~

This is A Test ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s sending me tests,
He’s giving me situations
He’s seeing if I’ll claim
His peace trough tribulations.

God’s giving me a chance,
to find new grace each day
He is seeing if my faith
will hold up along the way.

God’s working in me patience,
He wants to affirm my hope
He’s teaching me to trust Him
for the strength I need to cope.

God’s seeing if I will rejoice,
when things are askew
He’s looking to see His glory
in my life shinning through.

God keeps informing me,
Child, this is just a test . . .
so that I may experience
what is His perfect rest!

~~~~~~

Romans 5:3-4

And not only so, but we glory in
tribulations also: knowing that
tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience;
and experience, hope:”

When Fire Tested ~

gold used with permission IBible Verses

Going through the fire,
things getting too hot
tried beyond your patience
stomach tied in a knot?

Flames have you jumping,
can’t stand the heat
feeling the dread
that comes with defeat?

Well, don’t let the smoke,
conceal what God is doing
for the fire in your bones
is God’s way of pursuing.

Those flames that you feel,
are meant to purge
impurities out of your life
till you and God merge.

So, when being fire tested,
and it’s starts getting hot
you’re just turning to gold
in God’s refining pot!

Job 23:10
King James Version

“But he knoweth the way that I take:
when he hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold.”

When All You Have Left is Jesus ~

Jesus by Rich Aguilar free photo #6179

When all you have left is anguish,
when there’s nothing more you can do
and all of your pain and suffering
has taken the very best from you.

When your trials turn to tribulations,
when they start to overburden you
and the measure of your troubles
you can no longer alone get through.

When your misery turns to despair,
when you feel a hopelessness inside
and another raging, internal storm
you don’t have the strength to ride.

When all you have left is Jesus,
when you finally come to your knees
and you give Him all your hardships
you’ll find He’ll fulfill all your needs.

For Jesus is our Friend and Savior,
and He will never disappoint
He is always there to help us . . .
before we reach our breaking point!

that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
