Do you cry Lord?
With all of my tears, today I ponder a thought. Do you cry God? Do you ever? I’d say if you do, you are crying now. When those who turn and hate and hurt and destroy along their path – when they are, I’d say you cry. From the pain you see before it even is. I’d say you cry.
Except we know as you’ve told us, where you are there are no more tears. You show us how by your love. And even as we may cry now, cry out to God in its path. For we know there, there will be no more tears.
One day…as we come to you dear God, as you wipe away all our tears.
So Many Faces in This Flower
This time, can we work through the hate and jealous and despising judgments of others who are different from ourselves? We don’t like ones different – who look different – who believe different – who live different. Yet this struggles with what Jesus has given us to live and thrive and joy in. “Love one another as yourself”.
I truly feel where He intends is not to love others as much as we love ourselves, our beliefs, our lives. But to love others as they ARE OURSELVES. Stop and reflect that. Then how can we, when we put ourselves as the ones of others, how can we treat others with such anger and judgement and hurt? Look upon it all…all sides…all peoples. How would you feel if you had a life as some others may have?
Can we let us get it right? I can’t help but ponder, is God giving us a chance to? Can we let?
