Adversity Avenue


Adversity Avenue
By Christine Hare Tate

It’s a road we all must travel
tho bypass it we’d prefer…
A street where danger lurks
and chaos can occur.

It’s laden with potholes,
and calamities await…
collisions are common
and casualties are great!

Many are stalled there,
it’s a dismal sight…
not a popular road
in the day or the night.

But avoid it we cannot,
we must travel this avenue…
Thank God we have a companion,
who will get us through.

Our guide and instructor
the Holy Spirit our friend,
who’ll help us safely steer
down each dark turn and bend.

He’ll teach us how to cope
with the obstacles ahead,
and help us to endure
the unknown we all dread!

What a wonderful guide
we have to light our way,
as we face our trip down
Adversity Avenue today!


‘These trials are only to test your faith to see whether or not it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it, and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold; so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day of His return.’
[1 Peter 1:7]
