THE JEWELS OF SUFFERING

1/23/04~HYMN~

When I meditate upon your bleeding on the cross, my Lord

And I think upon your every painful wound

My heart swells with such a burning love for you

And I fall in love with you . . . all over again.

When I muse upon the crown of thorns pressed on your head, my King

And I gaze upon your nail-scarred hands and feet

My heart magnifies with deeper love for you

And I fall in love with you . . . all over again.

When I survey the throbbing soreness of your broken heart, my Friend

How your surely were consumed by all my sin

Then my heart rises with overwhelming love for you

And I fall in love with you . . . all over again.

When I ponder how you chose this path of life for me, my Love

And I consider You alone are all my Prize

Then I take up my own cross to follow closely after You

And I fall in love with you . . . all over again.

When I consider all your gentle touches, loving Master

And how you brush me with your sweet kisses and embrace me

Then I am struck with fervent ardor as I meet you face to face

And I fall in love with you . . . all over again.

John 19:34But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Mark 15:17
And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,

Ephesians 2:16
And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.

Philippians 3:18
(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Luke 9:23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

About Donna

Praise the Lord! By His Grace I am His child and His servant. I can do nothing of and by myself for the Living God is the Great Producer, Director and Potter and it is by His grace that anything has been accomplished within me. I have four children and five grandsons whom I love dearly. I am seeking to be a prepared Bride and to be a seeker, lover, worshipper, of the Living God. I seek to inspire others to come to the Lord and seek Him for truth and to hear from Him for themselves so as to follow hard after Him and all He has for them, also to warn others to come out of the babylonish church system. These writings are meant to draw you to the Lover of your souls so ,you too, can be prepared to please and satisfy Jesus Christ who paid the ultimate price for our redemption. Thereby, you will then enjoy Him here, glorify Him and belong to His Heart and meet with Him someday in the Heavenly Kingdom. The way is narrow that leads to LIFE, but the way is broad that leads to DESTRUCTION. I implore you to seek the Lord, to examine yourselves, to plead for His mercy to make you ready to be a prepared bride for Him, to be His inheritance, His reward for His sufferings.
