Come to earth to taste our sadness,
He whose glories knew no end;
by His life he brings us gladness,
Our Redeemer, Shepherd, Friend

Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus

He experienced the sadness of earth. There is insecurity here. What will happen in the future? How will He manifest His glory through me? How will I suffer? How is He making me? He knows. I do not know. There is a great deal of frustration in that. It's easy to despair. There is comfort knowing there is justice; there is satisfaction that this is not eternity. There is relief through tears; there is comraderie through grieving with believers. I am not content with this Hell on earth. I will be pleased when we are done.
