Purpose In My Trial

Every minute, hour, every morning, He is with me into evening,
And Heís with me all night long, as He fills my heart with song,
A song that carries me all day, as I walk along that narrow way,
In the most trying time of my life, Iím led along by Jesus Christ.

The trial could be here to stay, but, Christ is with me every day,
And every day, He gives me hope, as The Lord helps me cope,
Though the times may look bleak, He helps me when I am weak,
In my weakness His power shows, as my strength in Him grows.

My hope is beyond what I know, as my Faith He allows to grow,
While His Spirit directs me above, all through the trial I speak of,
My trial that will not last forever, while God will forsake me never,
While I walk with Him earnestly, looking forward towards Eternity.

Though I am tried for a while, He helps me keep a cheerful smile,
From Godís peace, He put inside, as in Christ, my Savior I abide,
Through Godís strength and power, as I abide each day and hour,
Being a testimony, for all to see, of the Grace, Christ granted me.

Itís for Godís purpose that Iím here, so in my trial, I need not fear,
Or get weighed down in anxiety, as He knows whatís best for me,
For God, I am here as living proof, of Godís Power and His Truth,
A light, for those around my life, that they may know Jesus Christ.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What A Blessed Hope, In Christís Love, Bob Gotti http://www.poeticpulpit.com

How sorry I am that you must endure this trial, Bob.   Yet, I'd have a difficult time moving you beyond here because you have such a wonderful way with words of praise and encouragement we all can learn from.

Thank you for bravely showing us there is a sunny side to your suffering.

God bless!
