THORNS… The Things That Hurt in This life

Thorns…
the things that hurt in this life…
will one day be replaced…
as we overcome the world’s strife.
For God gives us thorns…
for us to overcome with His plan…
and there will come a time…
that we will finally understand.
For this life is temporary…
and filled with much adversity…
but it’s only a stepping stone…
in the midst of God’s eternity.
For His greater Plan…
is for us all to overcome…
as we hold onto our Savior…
who is His Beloved Son.
And every thorn we endure…
will eventually be replaced…
as we overcome the pain…
and seek God’s mercy and grace.
For we can choose to linger…
in the world’s valley of thistle…
or we can climb above it…
onto God’s mountain of gold and crystal.
For the thorns of today…
we are meant to overcome…
with plans for God’s blessings…
with crowns of life to come.
And though some struggle to see clearly…
in the midst of the pain of thorns…
God just wants us to hold onto Christ…
Whom He sent for us to be reborn.

“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” Revelation 2:10

” Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:12

“And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:7-9
