Hope Through Pain (Part 7)

When I fell leaving work three weeks ago
Resulting pain could be far worse I know
God has shown me the more in Him I grow
There is hope through my pain and sorrow

By seeing reasons for pain in light of eternity
Suffering is a direct result of sinful humanity
In trials we endure leads to character maturity
Character produces hope in us for His glory

Today new anti-inflammatory medication
Caused some dizziness and blurred vision
I will trust God for the right plan of action
Doctor may switch to lower dose reduction

Faith and hope in God carries me each day
Revelation 21-22 He has promised someday
Sorrow and tears He will forever wipe away
My friend, do you know Him as Savior today

Many people continually live with pain
Doing whatever it takes to be free again
Not only physical, but emotional strain
Child abuse or divorce leaves dark stains

There is a greater spiritual battle inside
Opposing voices with a choice to decide
Temptation surrounds them on every side
Right or wrong they set consequences aside

Where do you turn at the end of your rope
Your life seems ruined by alcohol and dope
You think no one cares so how do you cope
God loves you so much; He is your only hope

Not wishful thinking but eternal hope He imparts
To all who by faith believe in Him with their heart
Admit your sin and only Jesus can save on His part
By His blood shed; as His child He will not depart

Romans 5:3-5 (ESV)
Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance
produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has
been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
