The Struggle with the Cup

To understand our journey
Christ’s struggle with the cup
knowing his purpose
but not wanting to suffer
to trust in the Master
his Father, our Father
his Lord and our Lord
wanting to live
to not have to struggle
yet submitting to suffering
that we would live
so that we may live
to witness, in service
giving our all
over to God
that we would follow
the example of our Shepherd
drinking of the suffering
that others may live
seeing our witness
our journey through life’s struggles
faithfully walking
with our Savior, our God.
