Prayer of the Children
” The ability to accept God’s unconditional grace and ferocious love is all the fuel we need to obey him in return. Accepting God’s kindness and free love is something the devil doesn’t want us to do. If we hear, in our inner ear, a voice saying we are failures, we are losers, we will never amount to anything, this is the voice of Satan trying to convince the bride that the groom does not love her. This is not the voice of God. God woos us with kindness, he changes our character with the passion of his love.” - Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz
Can you hear the prayer of the children on bended knee, in the shadow of an unknown room?
Empty eyes with no more tears to cry, turning heavenward toward the light.
Crying, “Who will help me to see the morning light of one more day?
But if I should die before I wake, I pray my soul to take?”
Can you feel the hearts of the children aching for home, for something of their very own?
Reaching hands with nothing to hold on to, but hope for a better day.
Crying, “Who will help me to feel the love again in my own land?
But if unknown roads lead away from home, give me loving arms, away from harm.”
Can you hear the voice of the children softly pleading for silence in their shattered world?
Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate, blood of the innocent on their hands.
Crying, “Jesus, help me to feel the sun again upon my face.
For when darkness clears I know you’re near, bringing peace again.”

Indiana got a piece of my heart today. I’ve had the privilege of doing life with her for 3 years of laughs, tears, and a whole lot of awkward moments. Through making new friends and dating the boys. It has been such a joy to watch her grow from a shy middle schooler to a confident sophomore as the Lord continued to knit our hearts closer together.And as she left she did break off and carry a piece of my heart with her. It hurts, more than i could have ever imagined.
but this is not the end.
