LONG SUFFERING
By: Pauline Lee
(I do not subscribe to Private Messanger. You can email me at fsteps@tm.net.my)

Suddenly I felt the urge to cry
But I resisted in a sigh
What is the use of life
When all things just don't seem right
Sometimes I look onward towards the sky
And realize my God does not hide
His face I do not see
But His universe immensely wide

All creation knows His name
Yet many deny His reign
I thought again about my strain
And deep inside I know I am faint
Oh God, why the tormenting pain
For years I struggle yet no gain
This suffering I bear in life's despair
But yea, the thorn in my flesh remain

Jesus, Jesus, how long will I wait
Before this thorn to be erased
Sixteen years I have fought and faced
Each waking day is still the same
Long suffering I endure and dread
Scars of it awaits me ahead
This messenger of Satan torments and snares
Its weapon like a sword that tears

My pleading with the Lord never died
Not even sixteen years could stop my cry
Though others see me a wiggling fly
They mock me like I am unwise
They laugh and scorn me in my prime
They say the things that hurt my pride
I am a subject of their despise
Like the "hunchback of notradame" was I

Tattered and torn I may look today
Having no choice but settled with frays
If healing comes and suffering strays
Oh my soul sings THANK YOU YAHWEH!
If you know someone who needs this prayer
Forward to them so they may be saved
From their suffering and sin and pain
Towards God may they journey their faith
