Many are daunted when tribulations loom;
Fear arise and there is trepidation and gloom.
How does one possess a spirit that is strong?
And within the heart there is a victor’s song!
There must first be a genuine faith in the Saviour;
And a whole life focused on serving Him as a debtor.
The redeemed life when it is well-comprehended;
It can result in a life of ministry that is well-commended!
Life is seen as a race that must be run well to the very end;
Faith and understanding will help us see God’s great plan.
The heart is thrilled to be given a place in God’s ministry;
There is a great desire to fulfil God’s chosen destiny.
Nothing needs to move the heart and cause it to flinch;
The brave and committed would not move an inch.
The example of the Apostle Paul is highly commendable;
To emulate him would result in a life most profitable!
