The Reason

I never really believed (in my experience/heart/gut, though my head had it filed away) that an abundant life in Christ would be filled with suffering. Yeah, Yeah, Paul said rejoice in "sufferings", and

I'll rejoice in mine.... so

"woohooooooo, I don't have as much money as I'd like!" or "yeeeeeeha! I sprained my ankle!"

Eeerrrr. No.

SUFFERING.

Where can I go? If not to
The One who split the seas in two?
Who can I ask? If He's not
Holding the answers wise men sought?
Who can I love? If not He
Who created, justified, and chose me.

Hope is not the hope. Life is not the hope. CHRIST is the hope... and Lord, it's all on You.
