We all face challenges in this life, even those who follow Jesus Christ,
So all challenges we must address, through our God’s Righteousness,
Many challenges are from this world, but God’s Truths we must herald,
Always in God’s light and His ways, in these present challenging days.

Many may struggle with their identity; just who and what they are to be,
But, God’s the One, who helps us be, that individual we are, as we see,
Living Truths in God’s Word we read, this as we allow The Lord to lead,
Through God’s Holy Spirit, within, that all our identity, comes from Him.

One challenge for many is Authority, men desiring to plan their destiny,
Not wanting to submit in their life, to the plan and ways of Jesus Christ,
But, in this life men cannot afford, to oppose the Authority of The Lord,
As our Lord has authority over all, nations and men, both big and small.

Another challenge; worldly influence, for those lacking Godly prudence,
With many lacking Godly discretion, taking instead, the wrong direction,
Then they live opposing God’s Truth, only to experience God’s reproof,
While some who do stray will learn, then back to God’s way, they return.

As we grow to know God personally, with The Lord, we find our identity,
To Christ’s Authority, we then submit, to live out our life as God sees fit,
So we’re influenced by God’s Word, living out those Truths we’ve heard,
While we purpose in this temporal life, to live for The Lord, Jesus Christ.
