Do you ever wonder what in the world is happening? Do you feel a little bruised by circumstances around you? Are you at times so weary of the road you travel? I have been and I am. I have some things I scratched my head over, and other times things I have shook my head over. When this happens I can do one of two things, I can get bitter or with God’s help I can get better.
Sore Spots in Life
There are times in your life,
When things do not seem to go right.
Trying times of trouble, pain, or stress,
When life hurts; in its progress.
This comes to almost everyone at times.
It is not as God has designed.
You live in a realm that is under siege;
On every side there are enemies,
Seeking to cause pain, shame, and despair.
Never is nor does life on earth profess to be fair.
When you belong to God’s Son,
You are now called His chosen ones.
To walk and talk as His ambassador as in a foreign land;
Subject to its terrors but led by God’s hand.
Each step can be painfully slow,
But still there is joy within the soul.
The sore spots are healed and soon you run again;
With heart ready to sing praise to your Lord and Friend.
Sore spots in life are not permanent for God speaks to them.
Soon He also heals the Nations as planned and under His rule again.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.
