poem ~ through the heartache

Jesus went through the heartache 
even when he wanted to run,
Away from the Father
passing the cup to someone.

Jesus went through the heartache 
and darkest of days,
To fill the calling of God
so we could have forgiveness in all ways.

Jesus went through the heartache 
to show the world He cares,
Yet do you stop to notice
or stay stuck in your despair?

Jesus went through the heartache 
to give the world the hope,
That there is redemption
in the situations where you're trying just to cope.

Jesus went through the heartache 
to pay the ultimate price,
So you don't have to do it
there is no need for payment twice.

Jesus went through the heartache 
and the most difficult fight,
The result is this shows us
there is a gift in the pain of life.

Jesus went through the heartache
to show you it can be done,
If you cling to the Father
you'll experience fulfillment a ton.

Jesus went through the heartache 
as an example to you and me,
Of what happens when you focus
your eyes fixed on eternity.

Jesus went through the heartache 
and the challenge for three days,
To show you what true love is
and how you're connected when you pray.

Jesus went through the heartache 
and the loss of everything,
To give you a life of freedom
and all the things that it brings.

Jesus went through the heartache 
to release you from your chains,
The moment you discover truth
nothing else will remain.

Jesus went through the heartache 
even as impossible as it seems,
That someone could love you so
when rejection is a prevalent thing.

Jesus went through the heartache 
and yet the choice remains,
Will you accept and live with joy
or your voucher never claim?

Jesus went through the heartache 
because He loves you so,
The limits are non existent
for His power covers your soul.

Jesus went through the heartache 
so the promise He could bring,
Of abundant life to you and me
for the benefit of everything.
