#390: Sermon Haiku 35: Revelation 2:8-11

We, in fact, are rich
Because of knowing Jesus
Rich beyond measure
Learn to suffer well
Pain, misery, test our faith
Where is our focus?

God is still present
We are never forsaken
Even in darkness
Jesus, our model,
Suffered to the point of death,
Calling us to life.
Our pain prepares us
In a wounded world, to heal,
Binding brokenness.

A thorn in the flesh
Prevents puffing up with pride
Poking holes in self
Poking us awake
God speaks clearly, hear his voice:
Set your hope on Me.
Pain breaks through our fog.
