The Fires of Affliction

by Deborah Ann Belka © 2017

Are you in the midst,
of the fires of affliction
are you dealing with
the heat of its conviction?

Are you brought to tears,
from the battle you’re in
is it hard letting go
of your besetting sin?

Are you struggling,
enduring the purification
is your faith being tested
beyond your expectations?

Well, if you are facing,
God’s refining pot . . .
know He needs to get
the flames burning hot.

For, He is purging out of you,
everything worthless . . .
so He can make you ready
for His divine service!

Isaiah 48:10

“Behold, I have refined thee,
but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in
the furnace of affliction.”
King James Version
