The Fellowship of Christ' Suffering

The Fellowship of Christ'Suffering


"That I may know Christ and the

 fellowship of his suffering."

Is a verse that's not always

 the most comforting.


"I must suffer for Christ and

taste of the bitter cup."

An appetite for his holiness

must fill my life up!


I really don't know what it

means to suffer for him.

I've been living a life filled with

defeat and sin.


I want to know what it really

means to endure.

I must read his word which

is true and secure.


Only in you Lord... will I know

life's true meaning.

As your Spirit in my life becomes

more revealing.


I love you Jesus much more

than words could express

When it comes to your love...

 I won't settle for less!


You have given me hope

 deep with my being!

And have blessed me...

You're my everything!


Thank you for the work in me

 I know you'll do.

I want you to know,

How much I love you!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
