Romans 8:22 “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”


Have you been tried and tested,
By the daily happenings of life;
Pushed…perhaps to the limit,
Beat down by all the strife?

It seems that those around you,
Live life so far above;
Maybe we need a boost,
Or, maybe a gentle shove!

But, let’s think about it,
What is it like down there…on the bottom?
It’s not a place that I enjoy,
And, I’m sure you’d not feel too welcome.

Oh, there’s so much to learn,
For like this…we don’t want to stay;
Surely…it’s not of our choosing,
To remain…forever…that way.

Later on…past the current problem,
We can look back…at what we did learn;
And, perhaps we can say…with conviction,
“It was good, but I don’t want to return!”

But, it takes awhile before we know;
That all things really work together for good,
And, each problem helps us to grow.

So, don’t be too quick to judge,
The things that come your way;
And, we’ll understand just ‘why’…some day!
