It's Worth It

Though it is not easy, it's worth it,
The pain and the grief that we bear,
The wounds that we carry bring others to Him
For we in His suffering share.

For when we have bled we've compassion,
Support and encouragement bring,
If we had not suffered what help could we be
To others who've felt this world's sting?

Though it is not easy, it's worth it,
The hurts that our souls have sustained,
For it is through suffering we learn God is real,
Dependence on Him we have gained.

In the painful there's purpose and meaning,
We are molded, we're shaped, we are honed,
Hidden grace is ours for the asking,
We'll be singing where once we have groaned.


"Dear friends, don't be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. Instead, be very glad--because these trials will make you partners with Christ in his suffering, and afterward you will have the wonderful joy of sharing his glory when it is displayed to all the world." I Peter 4:12-13 (New Living Translation)
