God's Test Of Hearts & The Storms Of Life - Poem by Tom Zart
GOD'S TEST OF HEARTS
The shameless hunger for power, wealth and revenge
Therefore a cruel messenger will be sent to their door.
People who justify immoral behavior
Shall be measured by their misdeeds before.
Fools listen eagerly to the words of the pathetic
Who's mission in life is the corruption of man.
Where the righteous overrule the wicked of heart
Challenging Satan's dominance and command.
Better is the heart filled with love and quietness
Than one that feasts on the loudness of strife.
Angry hearts fan the flames of failure
Eager to reject God's blessings of life.
God's test of hearts dates back to Adam
When Eve picked fruit from the forbidden tree.
Tempted by Satan they lost God's grace
Revealing weakness to be punished by Thee.
Happy hearts prosper on what is truthful and good
Where dishonored ones fester and rot to the bone.
Life charts our course but God guides our way
As His wisdom and love become our own.
THE STORMS OF LIFE
The storms of life come to everyone
There are none who are immune.
Some approach in our later years
While others come to soon.
The Bible is our anchor
Our lifeline to endure.
Without it's presence, we falter
And our future is unsure.
The Bible is our compass
To lead us through the dark.
Our souls lie among the lions
As we face the dogs that bark.
We cry out to our God Most Hi
Who performs all things in life.
To save us from our own plunder
Falsehoods, rebellion, and strife.
Conviction is our emotional union
As we weather the storms of Earth.
Thank God for His amazing grace
Which helps us reveal our worth.
