In The Difficult

Lightning can be destructive,
We dread its deadly deeds,
And yet the nutrients it brings
The soil badly needs.

The rain seems never ending
And gloom spreads o'er the soul,
But it's the rain that brings the flowers
Through which we love to stroll.

So too the trials of our lives
Fill us with fear and dread,
And yet it's in the difficult
When to our God we've fled.

So often what seems evil
The Lord will use for good,
And we end up on higher ground
Where we have never stood.


"And God has reserved for his children the priceless gift of eternal life; it is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And God, in his mighty power, will make sure that you get there safely to receive it, because you are trusting him. It will be yours in that coming last day for all to see. So be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though the going is rough for a while down here.

These trials are only to test your faith, to see whether or not it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it--and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold; so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day of his return." I Peter 1:4-7 (The Living Bible)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Ah, "To end up on higher ground," is there a better place for us to find peace and rest? I think not my friend. God bless you and yours . . Debby
