Love these words from a song I heard yesterday. They've been running through my mind the past 16 hours.
Though in the race of faith you seek relief,
Reset your gaze on Him who knows your grief.
Rejected by the ones He came to save,
Without complaint, His sacred life He gave.
Consider Him who chose a lonely cross,
Consider Him, and marvel at His loss.
Despising shame, Christ suffered in your place.
Consider Him, sufficient is His grace.
"Consider Him" words by Andy Gleiser
