Winds of Testing


Psalm 11
--You are my refuge
--Because you are my solace, evil cannot touch my soul
--You, the all-powerful God, are my protector; therefore, I can be joyful forever

--You test me.  Trials will come that you will not simply take away.  But, "You know the way that I take; when you have tried me, I shall come out as gold." (Job 23:10) I need to be faithful.  Under testing, don't let me forget who you are and what you've done for me.  For if I endure, if I hold to you, I will emerge from the test as gold.  Refined, strong, sound in my understanding of You.  Oh come winds of testing, that I may fall more in love with God.
