Why is there pain?
Why is the heartache?
Why is it that, the people who are already beaten down, continue to get hit with so much more?
This is especially hard for me when it’s a little child.
It’s hard for me to understand this sinful, imperfect world we live in.
Sometimes I honestly become a bit angry.
I feel as if the prayers I utter are coming back un-answered.
Which I know isn’t true.
I know how powerful prayer can be (James 5:16).
I know that you see the tears of your creation.
I know that you, to, look forward to that day when there will be no more tears (Revelation 21:3-5).
And so I wait.
Sometimes in doubt.
But all the time looking to you to provide.
To provide for me, but more so, to provide for my dear friends who are hurting.
At times I feel so helpless.
I feel as if there’s nothing that I can do for them.
I feel as if saying that “I’ll pray” isn’t enough.
Lord, please help me be enough.
Help me to be the friend and prayer warrior that you created me to be.
And help me to trust that unanswered prayers will be answered, in your time.
“Then I heard a loud voice from the throne: Look! God's dwelling is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will exist no longer; grief, crying, and pain will exist no longer, because the previous things have passed away. Then the One seated on the throne said, "Look! I am making everything new" (Revelation 21:3-5a, HCSB).
