Refiner's Fire - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Logic has no answers
For such inequality-
Why do good men suffer?
Just a painful reality.

The righteous suffer so,
While the bad remain untouched,
The reasons we don't know
Why we suffer things so much.

To put my mind at ease,
In my prayer He gave me
A glimpse of His masterpiece
A purpose there to see.

'Pain will purify thee
With water of Affliction,
And the bread of Adversity,
Will teach you life's direction.

These came with the fall of man
But they prune you for the best,
Just trust with all you can
And you'll soon pass the test.

All your dross will be removed
When you pass the Refiner's Fire,
And your goodness will be proved
For My Will you will desire.'

When I pass the fire I suffer
But He is in the furnace with me
And I love Him more than ever,
Love as gold as eternity.

---- ----------------
'....but we also rejoice in our sufferings,
because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
perseverance, character; and character, hope.'

Romans 5: 3
