THE CROSS OF SHAME.

When upon The Cross of shame I gaze,
I remember how God Works in Mysterious Ways!
There really is no reason in this world that I can see,
Why Jesus should have Hung and Suffered there for me.
Why He should have Silently, Patiently, Waited for death,
Until HE was Ready to Give His last Breath!

So many gathered there... so ready to hurl abuse...
Because they really couldn't understand... or see any use...
In all the Suffering that He was Willing to Undergo,
But HE, HE KNEW exactly who - and what - it would Show!
A criminal suffering at His Side, a roman soldier too,
"Here indeed was The Son of God!" they both KNEw!

Hanging... wracked with pain... each second reresenting prophetically,
The souls HE was Purchasing... Through His Blood... down through history.
HE KNEW THE EXACT TIME, IN WHICH HIS SPIRIT TO SUBMIT!
For it's God's Time that always makes the perfect fit!
My Saviour and The Holy Spirit and my Heavenly Father Love ME, what else can I conclude?
When MY name was graven on that Cross so crude!
