Drinking from his cup of sorrows

Drinking from his cup of sorrows 

Written By, Dean Masciarelli

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

When we face trials; and 
overwhelmed by sorrows;

And we feel like 
tortured prisoners;

Because of all of the challenges;

We don’t expect that anyone
will understand our feelings;

More or less all of our emotions

But Jesus does; because he faced 
many trials; and afflictions;
up until his last and final hours;

That were far more 
than anyone of ours;

Because his cup was 
to the brim with sorrows

And when his beads of sweat had
fallen to the ground it was
like blood flowing from his eyes
Because of his deep felt sorrows

And that’s why he reminds us; 
be not afraid for he is with us;

Through all of our troubles; even in 
our deepest and darkest hours; when 
seems to be knocking on our doors;

So that we can understand that we can rise 
above all things ;by drinking from 
his cup of sorrows; so that we can enjoy 
an over abundance of his love and an  
eternity of everlasting happiness and joys.
