Yearns: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry

Jeremiah 31:20, “’Is Ephraim My dear son? Is he a delightful child? Indeed as often as I have spoken against him, I certainly still remember him; Therefore My heart yearns for him; I will surely have mercy on him,’ declares the Lord.”

Still remember.

The Lord does not forget us or abandon us but holds onto each of us in His heart waiting for the moments to open windows of restoration. Waiting for us to see His mercy instead of holding onto our hurt and grudges and resentment.

Like we often do in our personal relationships where we feel betrayed or judged or belittled by someone close to us. And the relationship crumbles even though we yearn too for mending.

Sometimes a separation may be a beginning towards mercy. Even when it feels like abandonment or a canyon that can never be crossed. It may become a respite that allows us some distance to process through a different perspective or a new way to relate instead of allowing the past habits to erode love.

We begin to see through His eyes, that each of us is a child beloved. Held in His ongoing prayers. We remember again with hope.

Lord, please protect our hearts from hardening against You and those whom You gift to us in our lives. Help us to walk together in faith and promise and trust.

Your thoughts,
