Sonnet: In Face Of Trials And Tribulations… - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

When God allows new tribulations, then,
He wants His righteous souls come close to Him;
He aims to make them fitter for heaven,
And sooner, He will make your life less grim.

He tests your humility 'midst your strife;
He wants to see how much you love your God;
He will reward you much in after-life;
At times, our trials seem to us, so odd!

So, do not lose your faith in God at all;
God loves to see us better than before;
He makes it sweeter drink, life's bitter gall;
Increase your love and trust for Him therefore.

‘You will have problems sure on earth, ' Christ told;
In strife, with God, you should not slacken hold!
