Man’s Afflictions and God’s Salvation!
I’ve seen and heard of many afflictions!
Things happen in life, that need our attention!
There are things that happen that bring despair.
Wondering if anyone listens or even cares!
There’s a God in heaven who sees what’s wrong!
There are many things that don’t belong!
Evil moves with a power and destructive force!
It comes in many forms, from an ungodly source!
God knows what is happening and offers a plan!
His gift of salvation is freely offered to man!
His ways of living are at odds with this earth!
Anyone can come to Christ,
and receive a “new birth!”
If life’s heartaches and worries
are pulling you down…
There’s a new life for YOU!
Waiting to be found!
Your afflictions, for God’s healing,
is for you to receive!
Won’t you reach out to him now?
And simply believe?
His gifts of mercy and hope, is what HE can give!
He can totally transform you!
And the way you live!
His salvation, for life’s heartaches, is freely yours!
A new life with Jesus can be true
