I shy away from suffering

Just cannot bear the pain!

I dread the very thought of all

That loss, no comfort gained!



Within the realm of serving Christ,

What consolation see?

He said, “If you suffer with Me,

You will also reign with me!”



Suffering seems a way of life,

All, a time or two…

Sure, hits us and we feel the pain

Just nothing one can do.



Except grin and bear it, do not you know

A scream once in a while

May surely help alleviate

And turn a weakly smile?



The smile comes through that sweat you know

As purity as can be!

Then cry a little, it is okay,

A reminder, do not you see–



That Jesus also suffered, not

Just on that rugged cross.

Not just painful beatings or

For sleep, He took a loss!



Yes, he suffered agony,

Long sleepless hours spent,

Cringing for lost souls in hell

He could not be content!



The thought of losing multitudes

To satanic endless pain

Constrained all impulses to stay safe

Then weep again and again!



Broken ribs, a hip, a thigh,

A pain one cannot reach,

Burning that burns on forever in

Hell!  So why cannot we teach–



How can we, what can we do now

To get this message out?

Where pain goes on forever, so

Must we scream and shout?



It seems that some are doomed for hell.

Just no place else to go.

This message of pure liberty,

Well someday they will know!

  2. Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
