To Burst Open Again

Cold-hearted child
Music gone wild,
afraid of the unknown

She cries and cries
lifts up her eyes
for children who do not show

Like a dried-up river,
she used to burst open,
but now she has withered away.

Jesus, it is my prayer
that the water wells up once again
I need You, not you

Return me to my love at first
Let me experience a second, a third burst
For You, my King, my everything
Let my love for them
burst open again

Prayer for #Alabama

At least 6 people have been killed in the storms they have been having in Alabama. While this has been a horrendous tragedy, Jesus is still on the throne. Please pray with me for those who have lost their homes, livelihoods, and loved ones.

“Dear Jesus,
Thank You for being a God who cares for us and who is also Sovereign. We pray now that You would protect those who have lost everything in these storms, and that those who are injured would be made well. Comfort those who have lost a loved one (Psalm 34:18). Please bless these communities that are going through so much.
In Your Name we pray, Amen.”

If you feel so led, please donate for those who have lost everything through The Red Cross.

#StopAsianHate: Post by BeautyBeyondBones

In light of the heartbreaking mass shooting against asians in Georgia today, I wanted to share my friend Caralyn’s post about asian hate. It breaks my heart to see such a thing happen… may Jesus comfort those who have lost a loved one, and may He bring the perpetrator to Himself and to justice.

Please keep these people in your prayers.

“No Country” by John Mark Mcmillan

Dear Friends,

Listening to this song, I can’t help but think of the refugee crisis in Nigeria and Niger. I pray that it blesses you, and puts those who have “no place to call [their] country” on your heart for prayer and to help practically by advocacy and donating.

With Love in Christ,
