Suffering

He suffered
On the way to Calvary;
He suffered with his cross,
He suffered on the cross;
He suffered in the hands
Of cruel people;
Are you suffering;
Stop it if you can;
You were not born
To suffer;
You bring suffering
On yourself
Through your doings,
Your failures
Your disobedience;
But often also,
Despite your effort
To keep away suffering
It will still take hold
Of you,
You must take it
With fortitude,
And let His will be done;
He accepted suffering;
He bore it with courage;
In your suffering
Turn to Him for strength
Like his;
He will grant you
His grace
To bear your suffering
While it lasts.
