Lovingkindness

It’s no big deal?

She wishes this were true

Tell this to her battle

When she’s lost and she’s confused

Tell this to her mountains 

When the rocks keep coming loose

Tell this to her heart

When it’s battered and abused.

It’s no big deal?

She wishes it were so

Tell this to her giants

When they all begin to grow

Tell this to her ocean

When she’s in the undertow

Tell this to her storm 

When it’s all that she has known.

Let’s not judge and criticise

Let’s not refuse to understand 

We don’t know what they’ve been through

Or the battle still at hand 

Not when Jesus came to die

To save us from our pride

He took compassion on the helpless

He forgave and healed the blind

He made a way where there was none

To save us from ourselves

He took on our infirmities 

And He showed us how to love.

So it means a great deal 

When they’re pouring out their hearts

When their searching for some hope

A single light in all their dark

When they’re lost and need to be found

In Jesus’ way we must abound.

  1. First I want to apologize for the delay in responding. I did read this yesterday, but I guess I got sidetracked before I had a chance to comment. Second, I wanted to say that I do understand where you are coming from. A couple of times recently I asked the Lord what was wrong with me and why couldn’t I just be different. I am so thankful He loves us and cares for us and never leaves us. ❤️

    1. No apologies necessary! You are not obligated to comment on every post! 😊 I get sidetracked, too, or am just unsure what to comment sometimes. When someone is wading through grief it’s hard to say if that will ever fully heal. It’s may dependent on the type of loss, but there may also be some things that can shift our perspective or give us some comfort. I will share more about what I am learning about loss and grief in the coming weeks. I’m processing everything in smaller portions so it could take a while. Yes, I’m thankfull that He always cares for us as well. ❤

      1. I am looking forward to hearing more. Your posts have been a blessing to me. I love the idea of processing things in smaller portions. I think too often we try to take in too much and therefore can’t completely process it all.

      2. Yes, definitely. I always want to figure things out right now. Either out of impatience or curiousity. Overeagerness. ☺ God is helping me to temper this bit by bit.
