Beyond Suffering: Finding Liberation in the Sufferer's Love

A Holy Week blog poem



Suffer– 

I despise the word. 

Why? 

Why not? 

Rebellion.

Our rebellion. 

That is why. 


Suffer–

Life is suffering. 

I wish it were not. 

But it is. 

It really is. 

Not you? 

Just wait. 

Or not. 

Why not? 

No love. 

No real love. 

Love suffers. 

Love sits with sufferers.

 

Suffer–

He sits with sufferers. 

He weeps with sufferers. 

He dines with sufferers. 

He knows sufferers. 

He suffers for sufferers. 

He rises for sufferers.

 

Suffer–

Follow the Sufferer . . .

For you 

For the world 

For the lost 

For the outcast, downcast, tossed. 

Follow the Sufferer . . .

Beyond the tears 

Beyond the pain 

Beyond the grave 

Beyond the suffering. 

Follow the Sufferer . . . 

In faith

To hope

To joy 

To love, 

Eternal love, 

No tears or fears, 

Pain or grave.

Suffer?

What suffering? 

Suffer is suffocated by the Savior.
