Be happy when you are tested,
Think of what God has invested;
Much of may seem just like a maze,
As tested in different ways.
Testing of faith gives endurance,
Which is an added insurance;
Endure till the testing is done,
Then thank the Father and the Son.
The you are mature and complete,
Far from having any defeat;
And you will not need anything,
Knowing the blessings it will bring.
If any of you need wisdom,
Ask and it comes from His kingdom;
You can ask the next time you pray,
For clearing up those shades of gray.
God is generous to each one,
Regardless how much they have done;
When asked do not have any doubt,
Never think that He will opt out.
If you doubt you are like a wave,
Preparing for an early grave;
Winds can toss and blow you about,
Losing faith and hope when having doubt.
With doubt expect not from the Lord,
Any requests will be ignored;
If you are thinking of two things,
Then you vex the results it brings.
Humble believers should be proud,
Lauding the Gospel very loud;
The important thing is the Lord,
Showing your love being adored.
