The Refiner’s Fire

It’s along way back from the depths of the mire.

Only You oh Lord have brought me through the Refiner’s Fire.

How did I come through? I don’t even understand.

But I believe I was led

By Your invisible outstretched hand.

All my circumstances I now see

In a different light.

I’m beginning to accept Your Word,

“Walk by faith and not by sight.”

Lord forgive me,

There are days when it is so hard to believe.

For every day the fallen angels

Try my poor mind to deceive.

I am learning when I fall,

I must get up and walk again.

Those who rise are newly strengthened

And they see a better end.

You will guide us through the fire.

You will bathe our hearts anew

Like  a precious little flower,

Bathe in the sparkling morning dew.

By Leola Durant

Zechariah 13:9……I will refine them as silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, This is our Lord.’ 

As long as we’re alive, we will experience challenges in our lives. When things go wrong, instead of feeling sorry for ourselves (like I did,) or blaming God for our situations, perhaps we should start looking at our situations a bit differently. The Refiner’s Fire is hot and uncomfortable, but if we would stop fighting God we would emerge better people.

    When our Faith is put to the test, that’s when the true Christians will emerge. I pray that we as Christians will keep “Faith Building,” as we hold on to our Almighty Rock Jesus Christ.
