KEENING & WEANING

God puts us through the fire
To wake us to constant prayer.
It is not an instant remedy,
But a proven simple recipe!

God leads us through the crucible
To shape us on His anvil.
It sure is not easy to understand,
But a proven way to be transformed!

God walks us through the valley
To work on us thoroughly.
It may seem so dreary and queer,
But trust me, He truly does restore!

God tosses us on to stormy seas,
To prep us as His master keys.
It does sound as if He is so mean,
But sin does need a keen wean!

God causes us many a bitter tear,
To rescue us from dogging fear.
It often feels like being stranded,
But don’t worry, you’re not being abandoned!

God’s ways and thoughts, they make no sense,
To us if we don’t know His uncommon sense.
He cognizant of what its all about,
So walk in faith and not in doubt!
