Understanding Suffering

Posted on December 17, 2012 at 12:30 PM

At the sound of His voice

Winds subside

Be still

Trust

Have faith

We are wounded

Wretched


The cross

Sad

Our joy

Repulsive

A thing of beauty

Hope will not disappoint


Understand suffering?

Our minds are too weak


Understand His promise?

Our hearts are too hard


Set me free

I'm foolish

Slow of heart to believe
