The School of Adversity is a University

 

The School of Adversity is a university

And not what you know as a whiz bang city

There you are taught the ropes of hard knocks

Some of which may blow you off your socks.

  

You have to be patient to go through it

Because it is a process and not an event

Gradually, you will be pruned and refined

Until you are spotless, pure and fine

 

So endure and your victory shall be sure

Take not the carrot of the shortcut lure

God is working in you to make you shine

And when He’s done you’ll surely be fine.

 

weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,

Ps30:5,11

Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.Job13:15

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.Ps34:19

 

But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. Job23:19

 

Cast Down but Unconquered

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (New King James Version)
