Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection."

Lord, my heart hurts…

October 7, 2013 - Author: Bernadette Saddik

I’m afraid this post doesn’t offer many possible answers or ways to clear the fog. Just a lot of questions. Questions I’ve been praying about the past few months. For that, I apologize. It won’t become a habit. Please, as always, you are welcome to comment!

Thoughts spinning
Voices swirling
Heartbeat racing

Too much!

What do You want of me?
How much more must I bear?
Dare I utter the cruel words-
“It’s not fair,”?

What do I know of fair?
If fairness existed right now, then I’d have a lot more problems.
But how does one handle grace, well, gracefully?

The plates come crashing down.
Does it even mean anything?
Why should I care?

Please, tell me how education matters?
Why people matter?
What…doing, being!…matters?
Where is that fine line between buying the lottery ticket, and letting You take care of the rest?

Lord, I really don’t know.
But I take comfort that I don’t have to.
All I need to hold on to are Your words.
Those beautiful names who You are.
