Enduring Life's Trials

Enduring Life’s Trials

The hardships in life

you must endure.

If your faith in Christ

is to be sure.

It’s easy “to give up.”

Anyone can do it!

The challenge is to “trust Jesus

to see you through it!”

Living for Jesus

is more than just talk.”

Adversity will challenge your

faith and walk.

Trusting Jesus will end all

complainin’ and cursin’.

And will make you more of a

Christ-like person!

You’ll have strength, courage

and a desire to win.

Knowing that Jesus will meet

your need again and again!

Your faith and love for God

will grow to be strong,

knowing that “in the arms of Jesus

you surely belong!”

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
