“AND AFTER YOU HAVE SUFFERED A ‘LIL WHILE….”

“Jesus suffered….why do we think it will be different for us?”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in processing the meaning behind my suffering, i.e., Jesus suffered, alas must I”)

You’d do anything just not to suffer,

not to pace a deep day away in dread.

You disguise it well as a strength bluffer.

“I’m strong. I can handle this.” Then, why fled?

I don’t want to suffer, to miss the Mark.

If I suffer too long, too much, I’ll cave.

I’ll be nothing left, nothing right, just dark.

Is suffering optional? Is the grave?

“And after you have suffered a ‘lil while….”

1 Peter Five:10 – Oh no! We’re ALL feared!

We won’t suffer forever, just a trial

of tears, a verdict of “not guilty, cleared.”

We’ll have to suffer in silence….for now.

For all time will we rest with God….for How!
