More Precious Than Gold

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. (1 Peter 4:12 ESV)

so that the tested genuineness of your faith – more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire – may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:7 ESV)

Fiery trials

Can be so unexpected

And intimidating

Choking and threatening

Our peace

Fiery trials

Are unpleasant

And unwanted

Because man has

Been programmed

To abhor pain

And difficulties


Our faith must be tested

By fire

Because it is

Precious to God

May we always

Persevere and persist

And never give

Up our faith
