Decided to pull this out and repost,
hopefully as encouragement to those
who are going through present difficulties.
Disappointment? His appointment
To show you what He can do!
His face shines upon you in love every day.
He’ll never leave you, but make a way through.
The things you had hoped for did not come about.
What you held so dear is now gone.
Incredible hardships have knocked on your door.
The past can’t be changed; it is over, it’s done.
In this world, Christ said, we will have tribulation.
We’re not exempt from the pain of each fight.
There will be many a trial and many a testing,
Yet we’re walking by faith and not by sight.
These disappointments that have come your way,
are blessings that God has selected.
In all of our trials God works for our good
And in love gives us then much more than expected.
God’s showing the others a picture you see,
In how you handle things He’s sent your way.
Your trusting obedience,
your submission to Him,
And how you live,
speak louder and clearer than all that you say.
