Suffering


Some things only come with suffering

It prepares the soil for intimacy with me


Will you come into suffering

Willingly

So that we can be bonded

Bonded in a way we cannot otherwise

Be

A bond that can never be broken


Is it worth it to you?


Would you be willing to suffer

Just to have that bond with me?

Will you pass through the valley of weeping

So that I can create springs in your life?


I want us to share understanding when you walk

through the valley of weeping

I would create springs in your life

I would share my sufferings with you

- not my sufferings around the cross -

Those sufferings were for me alone

I would share my sufferings with you, the church

My bride

Open your heart to receive my sufferings

So that you can more deeply understand

My bride

I would share my sufferings with you

I would create springs in your life


My bride is pock marked

But I want to groom her to be

Bejewelled

To display my glory

You are part of my bridal party

Allow me to share my sufferings

As you share yours with me

And you won't be pock marked

You'll be purified

Polished

As you walk in obedient intimacy

My glory will begin to illuminate your understanding


Your suffering is your refining

Your suffering will mold you as only wet clay can be molded

With your tears

With my tears

Through my purifying

My adorning

My intimacy

My suffering


Psalm 84:6 (LSV)

Those passing through a valley of weeping make it a spring, The early rain covers it with pools.
