“2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4 NIV
Hardships are blessings—
Blessings in disguise.
Christ depended upon the Father
And heaven to open His eyes.
Hardships are not meant
To bring us to despair,
But are allowed to happen—
Our dependence to repair.
No matter how difficult the circumstances,
Don’t let Hardships get you down.
They’re designed by evil to break you;
Upon God’s love and His promises to frown.
By the power of the Holy Spirit
Let your soul bubble over with hope;
Don’t let unbelief deny you God’s rest—
All solutions lie within His scope.
God will provide a way out
And He our burdens carries,
If we just hand over the Hardships;
With His power He marries.
Doubt is from the Devil,
So ask for faith sublime.
Hold on to God’s promises,
So encouraging and divine.
Be willing to depend upon god
Regardless of the Hardships.
Let them draw you to Him,
Believing an end to their internships.
Never rely on your own power
To carry Hardships to an end.
Because the Father lover you,
Hi help, He’ll always send!
