Be happy when tested in ways,
That seems not in having a cure;
By strengthening faith as one prays
So you are able to endure.
Endure until your testing ends,
For being mature and complete;
His wisdom builds faith and defends,
So you will not declare defeat.
If any of you need wisdom,
For knowing just what you should do;
Pray to the Lord in His kingdom,
And to be able to construe.
God is generous to us all,
And is not trying to find fault;
He will pick you up if you fall,
When someone has caused an assault.
When you ask, never shed a doubt,
Make sure your faith is disciplined;
For God is knowing all about,
Doubtfulness blowing in the wind.
Someone with doubt is like a wave,
As winds tosses it in the sea;
Till you are buried in the grave,
Finding that you never be free.
Someone who doubts should not expect,
To receive nothing from the Lord;
All of your prayers God will reject,
As any requests are ignored.
If thinking of different things,
Many things all at the same time;
Such a confusion that it brings,
Could be considered as a crime.
Someone has to make up your mind,
Of everything that you choose;
Wisdom and grace humbles your mind,
As doubt you had you will lose.
