When we’re faced with various trials

And perhaps overwhelmed with fear,

We crave for consolation

With a hope that help is near.

When anxieties arise in us

And the solution is not clear,

Faith should become our anchor

As a substance we hold dear.

When temptation extends its tentacles

To create a sticky mess,

We should turn our back and walk away

Before trouble manifests.

When the enemy of our soul

Wishes to do us harm,

God will certainly turn it around

And extend His saving arm.

The beauty in all trials

Is manifested in the end,

When we’ve learned a valuable lesson

Through the difficulties sent.

When we have unwavering trust

In God’s way and His provision,

A great outcome will arise

With wisdom in all decisions.

When we overcome our trials

We can extend a helping hand,

To those walking through their fiery tests

As we empathise and understand.

Our consolation and our hope

Should rest in our Lord and Saviour;

He’s the only one to transform our soul

And instil His love and favour.
