A poem for those going through hard times.
Life’s painful experiences are really teachers
for your learning, to bring you to the realization that,
discipline and integrity are the order of the day.
What a price you pay for every indiscretion.
There is a price to pay for every careless mistake
Yes, the pain seems greater than you can bear.
Yet the comfort of the word rings out from
Proverbs 3:5&6 ” Trust in the Lord with
all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own under-
standing.’ In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he
shall direct thy path“
You now realize the folly of putting your trust in people
and in things.
O the folly of being careless and trusting in your own
With much regret and the wish that you could go back
and undo what has already been done!
Despair and depression now surrounds you,
hope begins to flee away.
At a moment’s glance, the warm and welcoming
presence of your Abba Father surrounds you,
bringing comfort and strength to you.
Enlightening you with the understanding
that every painful experience, every
disappointment are really tools to sharpen
and refine you.
To bring you to your rightful place in the Kingdom
Your most painful experience, if you continue
to endure will bring you to the place
of your greatest triumph.
These experiences will bring you to your place
May God, your Abba Father impart to you endurance
to hold on in all that you are going through,
you will make it through Life’s Painful Experiences.
