Hate the word
It's bad enough to suffer but to be long suffering
The thought itself sends a chill down my spine
Just today I thought of His walk up to Golgotha
I was down with flu
For me to walk up a shopping mall is tiresome enough
But to imagine Him
They have already tortured Him beyond recognition
I mean I switched off my tv when I saw that nail hit the table in the Passion of Christ
My mind had already imagine that nail tearing the flesh off His back
Today I thought of Him walking up Golgotha with that cross on His back
It was a long walk
It was a long suffering walk
It was a walk He knew even before He spoke before Isaiah
Could it be that He is asking me to take that same walk?
Could it be that when I am tired, I need to take that walk?
Could it be that when I am down, I need to take that walk?
Could it be that when I am depressed, I need to take that walk?
Could it be...?
Today, I knew I could take that walk
Today, I knew when I take that walk of long suffering, I walked in the footsteps of the One who died for me
Today, I finally understood that walk was a walk of love... the love of my Lord and Master for me...
Today, I walked with Him
