If all you can pray is Jesus, this one's for you!
Sometimes it just doesn't seem like prayers are being answered. Sometimes we are reduced to uttering, "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!" Sometimes we are reduced to moaning, "Jesus, Jesus! Jesus!" Sometimes we can only cry out, "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus," in the middle of the night, the night of deep sorrow of the soul. The night that breaks in to an unknown day.
Jesus, do what's best for our loved ones. All of them. Jesus send them home to You again, Jesus.
Jesus seal up ungodly entrances that they've allowed into their lives, Jesus.
Hedge them in, Jesus. Show a way where there seems to be no way, Jesus.
Sin is sweet for a season and then the sour sets in. The utter nausea of regret comes, the "How could I do this?
"How could I sink so low?"
"How could I break my Savior's heart?"
"How could I turn away from my family?"
Show us how to live, today and live well. Show us how to love today and love well.
Thank you, dear Lord for this promise: "But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:" Romans 5:20.Show us how to live, today and live well. Show us how to love today and love well. May Your grace forever win in our lives, today.
