The Way To God

If my days were untroubled and my heart always light
Would I seek that fair land where there is no night?
If I never grew weary with the weight of my load?
Would I search for God’s peace at the end of the road?
If I never knew sickness and never felt pain
Would I reach for a hand, to help and sustain?
If  I walked not with sorrow, and lived without loss
Would my soul seek sweet solace at the foot of the cross?
If all I desired was mine day by day
Would I kneel before God and earnestly pray?
If God sent no winter to freeze me with fear
Would I yearn for the warmth of spring every year?
I ask myself this and the answer is plain…
If my life were all pleasure and I never knew pain
I’d seek God less often and need Him much less,
For God’s sought more often in times of distress,
And no one knows God or sees Him as plain
As those who have met Him on the pathway of pain.

The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all;
~ Psalm 34 : 19 NIV

I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
~ Philippians 4: 13 NIV

5 This is what the LORD says:
“Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who draws strength from mere flesh
and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
~Jeremiah 17 : 5 – 7 NIV
