Nobody Weeps Like a Prophet

This is an awesome post/poem that I pasted from Tim Challies.  Enjoy a section, but go read the rest to know how it ends (here):

No one weeps like a prophet does. Why does he weep? He weeps because  

He sees the eternal.

And others don’t.

Where others see gain he sees loss Where others see strength he sees infirmity Where others see security he sees frailty Where others see life he sees death

“Then the man of God began to weep…”

“Why is my pain unending and my wound grievous and incurable?”

“It is enough, Lord. Take my life.”
