Sonnet to Struggling Churches

Sonnet to Struggling Churches

A Poem by John Carver

When you have tribulations know the Lord
Also knows that you endure and he is pleased
But when you are poor you are rich in one accord
But tribulation may not be something eased
You may be thrown in jail and beaten to death
But the Lord will shorten it or take you away
So though precious don't count your every single breath
And hold firm to grace until the end a new day
The Lord Jesus Christ said it in the Spirit to John
About a church in the end times to be
But your body is a temple and you not gone
But in the end your temple is not you; you're free
Only one survives forever besides Christ; King
Of Heaven and earth and just about everything!
