Suffering for Settling

"The God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you" (1 Peter 5:10).

The God of all grace who has called us to glory,
Who calls us to suffer a while for a season,
Will show us at last when we see our life’s story
The wondrous perfection of grace for His reason.

The God of all grace will yet bring to perfection
The work that with strengthen and settle our heart,
As also Christ's suffering, death, resurrection,
And glory perfected His grace in each part.

The God of all grace will make everything clear
And show how our suffering settled His grace. 
Until that day comes, we have nothing to fear,
For no one can pluck us from His strong embrace.

Lord, thank You for showing us Your point of view
To show how You’re working all things for our good.
Let suffering settle our trust now in You
That we may give glory to You as we should.
