GOD’S TEST FOR LIFE


This life on earth is but a test
Through trials we walk each day
But God will give us of His best
The worst! He’ll take away

The Lord will help us where He can
He’ll take all filth and rot
The choice remains alone to man
To give it up, or not

Yet selfish man is like a fool
The truth; they fail to see
We’re each on earth the devil’s tool
Till Jesus sets us free

The rich, the proud, oft walk so tall
Where egos lift them high
Their pride precedes before a fall
From which so many die

To Christ God’s Lamb, we all must turn
His Flame, our shame to give
In holiness, all filth will burn
And by God’s grace we’ll live

But first we too, must learn to die
Our self must turn to dust
To do, and not to wonder why
What God ordains we must

For Christ Himself, obeyed and died
The Father’s will was done
What hope is left, if when we hide?
Denying yet God’s Son

When on The Rock we have believed
In truth, we find God’s rest
Life’s goal in Christ will be achieved
We’ll pass God’s every test

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
