A cry in the night


“Arise, cry out in the night from the first watch of the night.   Pour out your heart like water before the Lord’s presence.  Lift up your hands to Him for the lives of your children . . .”  Lamentations 2:19 (HSCB)

 

What is it about the stillness, the quiet of the dark night that causes such unrest in the heart — especially when you’re  praying, imploring, pleading for God’s mercy on your loved one?   I think it’s in that moment Abba Father wants me to know HE knows my heart, HE knows my need, HE knows my hurt, and HE wants to mend my broken heart and HE desires restoration with His lost one — even more than my own desires.

HE will answer in His time and His way.
In the meantime, I trust — I persist — I pray
I keep pouring my heart out to HIM.

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever.”
Psalms 73:26 (HCSB)

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
