You Are Not Forgotten

By Rev. Dean Beaty 10/5/09

II Corinthians 4:17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment,

worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;” (KJV)

I Peter 1:7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of

gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise

and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:” (KJV)

Do we need reminding that God has not forgot?

Especially when our life is tied up in a knot.

God knows our every step and numbers all our hair.

He sees the little sparrow when it falls out of the air.

The problem is just this; we don't see beyond today.

And so we ask like Paul, “Please take this thorn away.”

We're not as quick to learn for Paul just asked it thrice.

We'd be much better off if we'd heed his wise advice.

A thorn from God has purpose to bring us nearer Him.

Don't see it as a thorn but as a brilliant gem.

Then with the Father's grace to bring us through the trial.

We find that in God's plan the course was all worthwhile.

The Lord has not forgotten nor turned His back on you.

Trust fully in His wisdom that He will see you through.

His crown was made of thorns. Our thorns become a crown.

A jewel-studded diadem for our future wedding gown.
