Afflicted ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

We are afflicted,
troubled and stressed
but, with God’s power
we are still blessed.

We may have to suffer,
for how we believe
but, each day more mercy
from God we receive.

We are persecuted,
stifled and oppressed
but, our faith in God
won’t let us be depressed.

We may have to endure,
hardship and pain
but, we count it all . . .
not for loss but for gain.

We are forlorn,
desperate and helpless
but, never are we . . .
in Jesus hopeless!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed; we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body
.
