Sorrowful No More


I am tired of SORROW.

It is all around us.

From funerals, to sickness, to disagreements.

I am tired of SORROW.

But I am not the only one

because so is HE,

because HE is the MAN OF SORROWS~

"HE was despised and rejected by men, A MAN OF SORROWS and pain and acquainted with grief; And like ONE from whom men hide their faces HE was despised, and we did not appreciate HIS worth or esteem HIM"*

So if JESUS is the MAN OF SORROWS

then HE knows our SORROWS

and HE wants them all~ "But [in fact] HE has borne our griefs, And HE has carried our SORROWS and pains;"*

And why would HE take all our SORROWS?

And why would GOD put this all on HIS SON~ "Yet we [ignorantly] assumed that HE was stricken, Struck down by GOD and degraded and humiliated [by HIM]"*

And then it all makes sense,

because it was never about HIS SORROWS

because HE made it all about our SORROWS~ "But HE was wounded for our transgressions, HE was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on HIM, And by HIS stripes (wounds) we are healed" *(Isaiah 53:3-5 AMP).

Therefore,
