Gods Way

There are times when trials get me down

And there are times when temptation beckons for me to follow.

There are times when the world gets to be too much

And the weight of unhappiness

Is heavy on my shoulders.

Sometimes the worldliness invades

My space of serenity

And I yearn for the mansion on the hill

Or the ferarri in the garage.

I yearn to have all my bills finally paid

Or a million dollars in the bank.

But God in all his lovingness reminds me gently

That all these things are material things

And will soon pass away.

God softly touches my heart and speaks to me

in a way that no other can.

He soothes my trials and temptations.

He lets me lean my head on his shoulder

And cry for all the time I think I have lost.

He shows me  a smile from my children

Or sends me an I love you from my husband.

He shows me the beauty of a  morning sunrise

Or the laughter caused by a robin

trying to pull a worm from the ground

In my front yard.

He gives me the awesome image of

A hummingbird feeding at my feeder

And the colorful flowers of spring

That only a master artist can paint.

He gives me the blue skies of summer

And the the falling leaves of Autumn.

He places diamonds in the snow

That sparkle on a snowy winter morning.

In all this he gently mends my aching heart.

And calms my worldly fears.

He gives me a safe port in the storm of my life

And wraps me in his love.

Oh,  I know that all the trials and temptations

Will come another day.

But I also know that God will be there

To hold my hand and speak softly,

And lovingly let me know that through it all

He will always be with me.



No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. 1Corinthians 10:13
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
