Some trials come into our lives like a wind that rustles leaves in a
Some trials come into our lives like a hurricane that uproots trees
Like a spy who reveals to the enemy the strengths or weaknesses
of the walls of a fortress
So does the way we handle the trials in our lives
reveal to The Prince of this world whether the walls of our faith are
strong or are weak
Trials are like an armed bandit
Who robs the wicked man of years of his life
But to the righteous man they are a school master
of wisdom and a builder of faith
Trials test the substance that love between two people is made of
like fire burning off the impurities in a piece of gold
