The birds continue to sing
As they greet us every day…
The butterfly continues to reveal its glory
And the sun will shine its rays.
Sometimes things get worse
Before they can possibly improve,
But the clouds do pass to reveal the sun
And there’s hope amidst the doom.
It’s unpleasant and it’s painful
When the fiery tests do come;
As we struggle in so many ways
And affected is everyone.
But it helps us to re-think
About our values and our morals,
And a timely reminder of the brevity
Of this life as mere mortals.
All things are temporary
But we need to have much hope;
To carry us through into the new chapter
With a strength to help us cope.
Although there will be much tribulation
In the coming years,
When we trust in Jesus He sees us through
And comforts all doubts and fears.
We’re all in this together
As we care in different ways,
And we encourage each other to never quit
And that ahead are fruitful days.
It’s an opportunity to bear much fruit
With a love and kindness too,
As we sincerely care for one another
To be sincere, faithful and true.
The rainbow is a reminder
Of God’s precious covenant,
And that restoration does take place
When we’re willing to repent.
Through patience everything will pass
And difficult times do come to an end,
And that long-suffering has an expiry date
And hurting hearts will mend.
We need to shed those tears sometimes
Since it’s our heart that is conveyed,
But God bottles every single drop
And listens when we pray.
We’re not alone and we never will be
As He’s the anchor of our soul;
He’s the restorer and redeemer
He’s Jesus our best friend..behold!
Eternal days are coming
And we really should prepare…
To ensure our soul is insured with Christ
So we’re not caught unawares.
