Life's Journey Here Is Seldom Easy

Updated on March 31, 2012

Life's Journey Is Seldom Easy

Life's journey in this life is seldom easy ,

We never know what will be the cost,

Only God knows who will finish the course,

Or how many souls will somehow be lost.

If we could only see far into the future

Know all of the pitfalls coming our way

We could then detour in our journey,

And out of temptation we could stay

But then would we have the strength

To attack each trial that comes our way?

I'm sure The Lord knows what was best

And let us handle life here day by day.

How could we dare question Our Maker?

He Who put the stars and earth into place..

Someday all the questions will be answered,

Someday we will look upon His Holy Face.

Then there will be no need to question then

Why life on earth had seemed so unfair .

When we enjoy our life in Heaven Above ,

All these things will not matter up there.

In God's Time our earthly trials are small

While our Heavenly life will never end.

We must live for Him while here on earth,

He is the One on Whom we can depend!


If we would let it our mind would often

wonder to things that are really not

important at all , Satan would love to

see us get so involved in worldly

things so we would keep mind off

of The Lord. We are opening the door

for Satan if he can keep our mind off

of Jesus . We must never lose sight of

The Lord. He must be with us every

day in every way!

      Hi Clara, thanks for sharing and encouraging us to depend on God to get us through our struggles. What is the alternative to this "not-easy" life? Non that I'd prefer. Your advice is right on.

      If all obstacles were removed from our lives..I guess that would be heaven on earth. But our trials teach us and chip away our imperfections.

      And yes, Satan is a shrewed and cunning spirit. He tempts us with pretty little things to distract us, but once you know the joy and peace of a loving relationship with the Lord, you know without doubt that He will grace you through the temptation.

      Glad to see you back on Clara, have a great evening.
