TRIBULATIONS

IN THE WORLD

Thunder snow
Sleeting storms
Crippled metroplexes
Power down, frozen towns
Polar vortex touches Texas
In the world you will have tribulation

Falling rains, rising floods
Stranding many on their roofs
Dozens slain, sliding mud
Dirty avalanche on the loose
In the world you will have tribulation

Wild fires, uncontrolled
Fire-starters, unpatrolled
Fire-nadoes, beyond belief
Firefighters, need relief
In the world you will have tribulation

Whirlwinds, cyclones
Earthquakes under seas
Hurricanes, typhoons
Tidal wave tsunamis
In the world you will have tribulation

Allison, Isabelle
Rita and the likes of Ike
Katrina in New Orleans
The failure of a dike
In the world you will have tribulation

 YOU WILL HAVE

Sink holes, opening up
Swallow much beneath the muck
Hopeless blame on bad luck
Experts speechless from the shock
In the world we have tribulation

Nations quake, bureaucrats crack
Leaders shake, whistleblowers rat
In the world we have tribulation

Terrorists terrorize
Innocents meet demise
Global problem multiplies
Worldly leaders theorize
In the world we have tribulation

Unending war
Increasing poor
Famines with disease
Epidemics roar
Compounding more
Drown out needy pleas
In the world we have tribulation

Crews drink, cruisers sink
Endangering all who trust
Fortunes stored on ocean floors
For barnacles and rust
In the world we have tribulation

TRIBULATION

Twenty-thirteen
Reveals and trashes
The fraud of Nostradamus
May 15th tornado crashes
Rancho Brazos houses
Here in Granbury many have had tribulation

Lingering draught, shrinking lake
Rain without, authorities take
Taxing shorelines not so great
Here in Granbury many have had tribulation

Somebody stop me please!

Jesus said
These days would come
But by His victory
We’d overcome

From His peace
We can have peace
With His Spirit
We find relief

Through His truth
We get set free
By His grace
We can believe

He promised,

These things I have spoken to you, 
that in Me you may have peace. 
In the world you will have tribulation; 
but be of good cheer, 
I have overcome the world.”                
JOHN 16:33
