Puzzles of Life ( by Fenny West ) Puzzles of Life Life is often a puzzle Pieces are strewn here and there And you wonder: “Who can fix this? Can this ever be fixed? This is impossible. Who can help me? I can’t do this. This will take forever.” Then you hear a voice within: “All things are possible To those who believe? There is a way When there is a will. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Those who know their God Shall be strong and shall do great exploits. Faith is the substance Of things hoped for, The evidence of things not seen. He who comes to God Must believe that He exists And is a rewarder of those Who diligently seek Him. God forward! Fear not. Be not puzzled, perplexed or dispirited. I will help you Wherever the soles of your feet shall tread, I have given it to you. Have the God-kind of Faith. Whatsoever things you desire Believe that you have received it and you shall have it. All things are yours.” “Whoever shalt say to this mountain, ‘ Be removed!’ And shall not doubt in his heart That those things which he says shall be, He shall have whatsoever he says.” And then your mindset changes You are renewed in the spirit of your mind. You begin to think positive: Whatsoever things are pure…honest…just…true Of good report…lovely…virtuous…praiseworthy. You say to yourself:” I have the mind of Christ. If God is for me, who can be against me? The Lord is with me, I fear no evil. I will look unto the hills Where does comes my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, The Maker of heaven and earth He will not allow my feet to be moved He will not allow me to stumble. He watches over my going out And my coming in. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.” And you sit down and set to work, You know that faith without works is dead. You begin to work our your salvation. You will receive a new drive, a new inspiration. Heaven will open and grace will come. Wisdom will come. Insight will come. Light will come. Foresight will come. The Holy Spirit will guide you Each step of the way into all truth. Divine speed will come And before you know it, it is done; finished. Puzzle fixed! Alleluia!
