But if you are using the 'google translator' tool I've placed on my site, you will need to check the accuracy of the translation on the google translate web page, as it may not have translated correctly - and even then you may need to copy and paste the English version line by line (as well as check the odd word for meaning and context) to get it 'more correct' as google's translate web page isn't completely accurate either. I'm sorry that it may take longer if you want this poem in your own language, but it needs to be correct because if it isn't, it will lose its meaning.

When Testing Comes


Sometimes you allow us, Lord,
To go through times of testing
And often, Lord, it may come to us
After a time of blessing


You let those times we go through
Be times of deeper work
To teach us, Lord, to trust in you
Even though we may hurt


We try so hard to understand
Just what is going on
And why we go through such a low
When before we felt so strong


And when our bodies are in such pain
And our minds are in the dark,
Why do doubts of your word, Lord,
Creep into our hearts?


We wonder where you are, O God,
In the midst of all our doubt
And why you even allow such trials
That seems to cloud you out


It often seems so hard for us
To trust you in these times,
We want you to remove the pain
In our bodies and our minds


And yes, O God, I know you heal
And give us hope to believe in
Then other times, you allow us to
Go through difficult seasons


But you know what's best for us
And you see the bigger picture,
You're always there to walk with us
Into a brighter, hope filled future.
