My time was not wasted,
That I spend here with you;
For suffering tasted,
Like a bill overdue.
 
The insulting treatment,
That I had to endure;
I had to circumvent,
The ridicule for sure.
 
But God gave me courage,
To tell you the Good News;
Along with the knowledge,
And not personal views.
 
The strong opposition,
Would not be stopping me;
Standing my position,
With the insight I see.
 
I do since God does trust,
And also passed the test;
For it is not for lust,
That I will do my best.
 
I please not the people,
Rather pleasing to God;
Keep preaching the Gospel,
As I honor and laud.
 
God tests our motives,
To see if we are true;
You will know when He gives,
His blessings unto you.
 
I am seeking no praise,
From no one that is here;
Merely knowing always,
That God will remain near.
