The Way of the Cross Leads to the Cross

If I ask to be delivered from trial rather than for deliverance out of it, to the praise of His glory,
 if I forget that the way of the cross leads to the cross, and not to a bank of flowers, 
if I regulate my life on these lines, or even unconsciously my thinking, 
so that I am surprised when the way is rough, and think it strange, 
though the Word is 'think it not strange, count it all joy', 
then I know nothing of Calvary love.
