Be happy when you are tested,
In so many different ways;
That your joy can be invested,
As you give God honor and praise.
Your faith produces endurance,
Times when you are faced with a test;
You have guaranteed assurance,
Enabling on doing your best.
Endure until your test is done,
As to be mature and complete;
Then your victory has been won,
Giving the devil defeat.
If any of you need wisdom,
For knowing on what you should do;
Look towards the Heavenly Kingdom,
That your thoughts easily construe.
You should ask God and He will give,
For He is generous to all;
Making life easier to live,
For He will catch you when you fall.
God will never find any fault,
If you are straight forward with Him,
When you are willing to exalt,
He rewards with spiritual vim.
When you are asking for something,
Never try to hold any doubt;
Because a doubt will never bring,
Any of your seeds will not sprout.
For any doubts are like a wave,
Being tossed by the blowing wind;
Boats sent to a watery grave,
Like people corrupted with sin.
Those who have doubt will not receive,
Anything ever from the Lord;
For the lack of faith to believe,
Any requests will be ignored.
Humbled believers should be proud,
For being meek is important;
As well as believers with wealth,
Ensuring their spiritual health
