... "Stay close by my side ..."
we've heard these Words earlier in
|Prayer for the Week|
"Oh, God, we love You! In the face of our most confusing, painful, crushing times, even if we have to say so crumpled in a pile on the floor, we say we believe in You and we know that You are good and Your plan is good. When You don’t answer our prayers the way we want You to, we wobble, we have questions, we may be angry, and we are so hurt that it’s hard to breathe. But, we still call You Lord and we trust that You lean down so close to kiss our tears away, weathering the storm with us, and giving us Your indescribable, inexplicable peace. Help us to cling to You even in our pain and to be glued to You until the day we see You face-to-Face. Help us to praise Your name even when You don’t fix it because we love You and You are our God. Our good and gracious and loving Yahweh. Thank You for never leaving our side, Jesus. We need You and we love You. Amen."Laurie McClure
"You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!" (NLT) Isaiah 26:3
"The world weeps.
The world weeps, needing peacemakers who let the broken bits of their heart fill in all the cracked pieces & places in the world, us all becoming bridges."Ann V.
