Trials and Tribulations
When we are are pressed on every side by troubles
We are not crushed and broken.
When we are perplexed
Because we don’t know why things
happen as they do,
We DON’T give up and quit.
We do not become discouraged, exhausted, wearied out through fear.
Though our outer man is progressively
decaying and wasting away,
Yet our inner self is being progressively
Renewed day after day.
For our light, momentary affliction is ever more and more
Abundantly preparing and producing and
Achieving for me an everlasting weight of GLORY
Beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all
Comparisons and all calculations, a vast and trancendent glory
And blessedness never to cease.
