Disappointments strike without warning. They take us by surprise and leave us battered – yet not completely. If we choose to persevere, God will reveal Himself to us in and through those very disappointments. I wrote this poem after facing many disappointments and I believe you’ll have something to learn from this.
When things unexpectedly go wrong
Don’t cry ! Wait and hear the full song !
When disappointments strike,
Let not your sorrow go on a hike !
Know that God has a purpose –
The Father still loves us and is moulding us !
Only as time flies by and by
can we understand it all – today is a lie !
God has a brighter tomorrow !
In the way of the Cross, patiently row !
But Lo ! Expect not fame, riches or pleasure:
God’s blessings, these things cannot measure !
Jesus is able to change your situation:
But even more! His Word promises regeneration –
A new heart thou shalt freely receive !
Only if the truth, you choose to believe –
Promise of mere riches are the prosperity Gospel:
Know that all such teaching come from Hell !
Trust God to provide for your daily need
His Word, continually hear and heed;
God won’t let you be tempted beyond
what you can bear: but His Spirit’s bond
will sustain you through every tough day !
May you come out as pure gold, I pray !
- 1 Peter 4:12-13 Dear friends, do not be astonished that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in the degree that you have shared in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed you may also rejoice and be glad.
- 1 Corinthians 10:13 God is faithful: He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear
- Job 23:10 But he knows the pathway that I take; if he tested me, I would come forth like gold.
