Share Trouble


The prequel to Revival Time (and Space)

It’s hard to share
In the troubles of others

When their trouble
Reminds us
Of too much of our own

The pain ungrieved
Unsurrendered to God
Is like a dam waiting to burst

One more drop
Might destroy us

The Lord knows
We are finite

He doesn’t ask us
To carry the sins of the world

But He does challenge us
To become
Our brother’s keeper

To drain the swamp
Empty the dyke

Let go of the pain
We’ve been holding so tight
Behind closed doors

Trusting Him enough
To let Him share
And redeem
Our troubles

So that we have room
To do the same
For those
Who know Him less
