Would I Ever Know Jesus?

November 24, 2011

A Quest For Truth

If I were satisfied and
Fulfilled by this world
Would I search for God’s peace
At the end of the road?

If I never grew weary
With the weight of my load
Would I rely on His strength
Instead of my own?

If I never had trials
Or tribulations to bear
Would I bow with submission
To my Father in prayer?

If I never knew sickness,
Grief or despair
Would I ever believe
Grace sufficiently bears?

If I never felt fear
Or had to repent
Would I revere His judgment
Or seek His forgiveness?

If my soul never agonized,
Suffered calamity or loss
Would I ever thank the Lord
For His Son on the cross?

If my life were all pleasure
And I never knew pain –

My faith would not exist
I would seek God much less
For He is most often sought
In times of distress.

      Yes, and I would scoff at this in my younger years, of course, not understanding what it meant. I am so grateful for the understanding now & to share with my brothers & sisters. Blessings my friend ❤
