But Christ – 2 Corinthians 4
(written: 28 April 96)
There is on each side pressure
But Christ does not allow us to be crushed.
At times great perplexity invades our minds.
But Christ leaves no room for despair.
Persecution may come,
But Christ never abandons.
And struck down as we may be-
Christ sees, and allows no destruction.
Though carrying death – Christ’s death - in our bodies,
Christ’s life may be seen, in that same life of death.
And as we die daily, life we have eternally.
What we see passes, that which we can’t lasts.
So we don’t lose heart,
For in each trial of life,
Christ bears a part.
