    CALVARY'S TREE

    Are you weak and heavy laden
    Are you cumbered down with care
    Does the weight upon your shoulders
    Seem like more than you can bear?

    Do you struggle with life’s burdens
    As you travel on life’s road
    Do you tend to bend and buckle
    Under such a heavy load?

    My friend, just think of Jesus
    How He suffered and He died
    For our sins and our transgressions
    He was whipped and crucified.

    Imagine how He stood the pain
    It cut right to the bone
    The anguish that He must have felt
    Up there, so all alone

    Each strap that lashed across His back
    Brought pain beyond belief
    While soldiers laughed and scorned Him
    How He prayed for some relief.

    A crown of thorns was laid to rest
    Upon His weary head
    While angry crowds cried crucify
    He suffered and He bled.

    My friend, just think of Jesus
    He was such a wretched sight
    They bound Him to a rugged cross
    He died without a fight.

    The nails were driven through His hands
    He moaned in agony
    Yet, He would do it all again
    He'd give His life for me.

    So my friend, just think of Jesus
    When you grumble and complain
    You’ll see Him there on Calvary
    The place where He was slain.

    That lowly figure on the cross
    Will slowly come to life
    You’ll see the anguish in His eyes
    The torment and the strife

    You’ll see the sweat upon His brow
    The burdens that He bore
    All the things that bring you pain
    Won’t matter anymore.

    Really brings things into perspective!

    I know at one of my lowest points (with pain) I cried out to God -partly in anger / partly in fear...
    "How much more will I have to suffer (physically)?"

    and I felt the presence of God and He answered me right away with this :

    How much did Jesus suffer hanging up there on that cross for you?

    PERSPECTIVE...

    He took those stripes for my healing and yours....

    By His stripes we are healed By His stripes we are healed
    I claim victory over this disease for all of you By His stripes I confess I am healed
