Weeping: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry

Jeremiah 31:9, “With weeping they shall come, And by supplication I will lead them; I will make them walk by streams of waters, On a straight path in which they shall not stumble; For I am a father to Israel, And Ephraim is My first-born.”

“With weeping they shall come.”

Tears of grief, tears of loss, tears of astonishment, tears of mercy, and tears of hope, are often all mixed up when we come to the Lord. Confused—disoriented—wary and yet clinging to His promises.

Especially when our paths become muddled.

Yet, He waits for each of us to accept His direction. He will carry us as a beloved child. He replaces our fears with trust, our failures with His faithfulness. We have the opportunity to look to new plans with curiosity and hope instead of fretting.

He gives us clarity on His straight road. He closes false routes. He leads with love.

Thank you Lord for Your ongoing multiple streams. Not just one flow that if we miss we are lost, but ongoing streams for every moment of our lives.

Please keep our hearts turned towards Your words and listening to Your Spirit’s guidance. Help us to be as willing to bring our weeping and failures as well as our joys and successes.

Your Thoughts,
