This song is on my mind and in my heart today.
There are so many hurting people all around us. People that need to cry out to Jesus ... and people that are just too tired and too weary to even cry out. May we be their voice today - cry out to Jesus!!!
There is a lady in our town that has been thru more grief and heartache these last 3 weeks than what many people experience in a lifetime. 3 weeks ago, her grandfather died. 2 weeks ago, her son earned his wings. And this past Saturday, a final good-bye upon this earth to her daddy.
Having gone thru the heartache of grief and loss - my heart and soul cries out for her.
There is another lady in our town whose son was murdered. Planned and attacked. Left in the street to die. In our small town. She is a testimony of faith in our God in the face of this grief.
A family member has been missing for over a year now. There is a "person of interest" in the case ... but no answers for the family. To be a mother and not know if your child was alive or not, hurting or not ... where. O cry out to Jesus! He knows.
Just read a news story yesterday about a group of Boy Scouts leaving a camp in Wyoming heading back to the wildfire ravaged Colorado Springs ... met head on with an RV ... lives are lost ... changed. Grief and sorrow at the tragedy.
Obamacare ... a real concern to those of us who do not have health insurance, and cannot afford to pay for it. Yet, we do not qualify for government assistance either. I know that God is in control - I keep breathing in and breathing out. Reminding myself to cry out to Jesus!
Hopes that are deferred ... making the heart sick ...
Dreams that die ... and leave us with nothing but empty hands and lost minds ...
Words that are spoken in anger ... needing to be forgiven and forgotten - but they haunt and they torment ...
Bodies that are weary and tired ... sick and aching ...
Burdens and cares that just get too much to bear ...
CRY OUT TO JESUS!!!
CRY OUT TO JESUS!!!
Be the wind beneath my wings -- and I will be the wind beneath yours.
Pray for me ...
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
