To Suffer (To Allow)

To suffer… to allow…
To endure somehow…
To allow God to work
And make us more…
To allow Him to increase
And us to decrease…
To allow His will to be
In allowing others to see
That allowing God to do
Saves me and you…
To allow the perfect One
To glorify His only Son…
To obey the One in control
That the 3 in 1
In us may be whole.
To suffer… to allow…
To endure… for now,
It won’t be long
Till all misery is gone.

When I wrote this I was struggling with why God allows us to suffer, allowed His Son to suffer, and at the same time wondered why we use the word suffer to mean something as trivial as suffering a hot day when Christ and the disciples suffered true sufferings. In praying to God, he taught me the biblical definition of suffer is To Allow.
For example, when Christ suffered, He allowed Himself to be arrested, beaten, put on the cross, mocked, pierced, and to die a cruel death. He did it for you and me. ❤
God suffered too. He allowed His Son to leave home, to hunger, to be betrayed, arrested, beaten, mocked, pierced, and to die a cruel death. He did it for you and me too. ❤
