Incomprehensible joy

Incomprehensible joy

A Poem by Caroline B A Maguire

Jesus knew the worst ...and yet could see the joy in life!

Rejoice! Jesus said 
Before he was crucified?
How could He?
When did He first know 
I wonder
That the cross was to be His dismal fate 
As a child of 12 perhaps ?
A teenager?
When did He realize that the fate of humanity 
Lay on His shoulders? 
Incomprehensible to me 
That he could rejoice 
Knowing what He did
That the Father would put such a burden on His humanness
For here He was like us, frail, weak, a mere man 
Only after His death did He take on His Diety I believe
So he faced His cross daily
Oh the suffering He must have felt
Incomprehensible to me 
Because of me
To allow Him to say to me
Rejoice Caroline!
