Be happy when you are tested,
In so many different ways;
It is to see if you invested,
Endurance that would block your strays.
Endure until your testing ends,
Then you are mature and complete;
Consider asking any friends,
Helping to resist and defeat.
If any of you need wisdom,
For knowing on what you should do;
Pray to God up in His Kingdom,
For guidance in helping you through.
God is generous to anyone,
That He does not find any fault;
And believes in Christ as His Son,
Willing to honor and exalt.
Whenever you request in prayer,
Do not ever have any doubts;
Never hesitate what you share,
Talk normally no need for shouts.
Humble believers should be proud,
Because humble gives confidence;
But being boastful not allowed,
Since boasting shows improvidence.
Blessed are those who will endure,
Anytime when temptation strikes;
If asked God will help you to cure,
Anything that desire likes.
God will give you the crown of life,
If you continue to love Him;
And will help you through any strife,
As He strengthen giving you vim.
God is not tempted by evil,
And will never tempt anyone;
Temptation comes from the devil,
When the lust ambush has begun.
Lust is trapped when it has conceived,
Causing you corruption and sin;
The snare of Satan has deceived,
As the enticement does begin.
