Wandering (revised :)

Wilderness
No way out
Traveling
Searching
So long
Alone
Thought I found
A home
But no
Still alone but for
Carrying them
My own
To care for
To feed
And clothe
My own
Thought I knew
The way
But no
Still lost
Carrying them
My own
I love them
I heard it again
The old story
A Savior came from Glory
Maybe I should listen
Maybe I should
Cry
Save me
Jesus
There it is again
I don’t get it
Yet but
I’m listening
To the love song
You sing to me
I’m listening

As intercessors, we pray on behalf of others, and we may confidently keep praying for them as Jesus has instructed us to do in the parable of the unjust judge in Luke 18:107, because He hears our prayers for others even though sometimes we must wait a long time for the answer.

    • Greetings, Trisha. You are right that God never gives up on us and He never stops caring. Called to be intercessors, people that pray for others, we must never give up on those we pray for. We must keep loving and keep praying for them as though we ourselves were under their burdens. Thank you for speaking up for God. I didn’t mean to imply that our awesome God would give up on us, but only to encourage intercessors, people appointed to pray, not to give up. Blessings to you…

    Wonderful poem. God does hear our prayers. He hears every word. It is hard to wait on our prayers for others when we want so badly for them to unfold before our eyes. Yet God’s plan is greater than we can understand and as we wait he builds our faith.
    God bless,

    What a beautiful way to think of the Lord’s words and message – as a love song! Wow, I’ve never thought of it like that before and yet it’s so apt. Everything the Lord teaches is about love. I agree with you, prayers are always answered – just not always as we expect them πŸ˜€

    Hope you have a great day my beautiful friend xx
