Fix Our Attention To What Lies Ahead - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Not a few men ask:
'Why does God allow strife? '
Why there are troubles
That they see in this life.

Keep your eyes straight ahead,
Press on toward the goal;
Don't waver nor stumble
To reach the end so joyful.

Don't be discouraged,
Even if into life crises come;
Stand steadfast and firm,
Shift not from hope of God's kingdom

Look to the Almighty Father,
Keep your hope and trust alive;
Abound in faith and in love,
The hardship you will survive.

It's not enough to know God,
We must experience His mercy;
He is our refuge and guide,
He will lead us to the holy city.

Obedience offers eternal life,
Faith without works is dead;
Let us fix our full attention
To salvation that lies ahead.
