My children, when you come to serve the LORD,  prepare yourself for trials.

Be sincere of heart and dedicated,  not worried when your life is filled with troubles.

Cling to the LORD and don’t abandon him,
and your future will be great.

Accept  whatever  happens  to  you,
In  crushing  misfortune  be  patient
For  by  fire,  gold  is  tested,

( gold is separated from rock ore at 1850 degrees Fahrenheit )

and worthy people are tested in the extreme heat of humiliation.

Trust in God and he will help you;  Strive to do what is right and put your hope in him.

You, who love the LORD,
wait for his mercy, don’t grow tired and give up or you will fall.

You, who love the LORD,
trust him, and your reward will not be lost.

You, who love the LORD,
hope for good things, for lasting joy and mercy.

Study the generations long past and understand;
Has the LORD ever disappointed anyone who put his hope in him?

Has the LORD ever abandoned anyone who held him in constant reverence?

Has the LORD ever ignored anyone who prayed to him?

Compassionate and merciful is the LORD; he forgives sins, he saves in time of trouble.

How sad it will be for those with restless hearts and drooping hands,
to the sinner that treads the double path!

How sad it will be for the faint of heart who can not trust,
they will have no shelter!

How sad it is for those who have lost hope!
What will you do when it comes time to be judged by the LORD?

Those who have reverence for God,
do not disobey his words; those who love him keep his ways.

Those who have reverence for God,
seek to please him, those who love him are filled with his law.

Those who have reverence for God,
prepare their hearts and humble themselves before him.


Let us choose to remain in the hands of the LORD and not put ourselves in the hands of men, for equal to his majesty is the mercy that he shows.
