Need I say more? Absolutely, I DO!

This is life. Go back through my blog and you can read examples of this truth played over and over again. Trials are meant to teach and refine.  Some people (me) require more trials to finally learn the point intended.

Instead of a lengthy write up, I’ve opted for a little poetry* this evening:


“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12 ESV

Have A BLESSED Weekend!

* I am not classically trained in prose and poetry.  The last study I completed specifically for poetry was in high school, which was a very, very long time ago.

Credit: I used the design for that amazing poem in CANVA.  The photo is not mine (heaven forbid) and this was extremely simple to create.

  1. It’s encouraging to know someone out there is still reading the Word of God and actually putting their faith into it.
    I bet it makes a marvelous difference in life.

    • Hi Nick, thank you for the compliment! I really think it’s divine intervention, either on my end or the reader’s end. Either way, it is awesome to be able to take this course and have some fun. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by to read my post!


  5. honestly am not a religious person, but reading your poem did strike a cord in me. A positive cord. Really like the verse at the end.
