SHUNNED

I feel the aura of disgust from you.
I have become a despised thing.

Loneliness consumes my very being; the silence is deafening.
I am utterly alone among many. Oh, wretched man that I am!
When will I be accepted?

When will this distain for my very presence serve it’s sentence out in full and declare me free from the chains of contempt?

My face I cannot behold, for it is veiled in shame.
My hope has poured out of me as a fine wine has spilled upon the dust of the earth and is no more.

But You Lord saw me and had compassion for me.
You have rescued me from this pit of despair.
You have not turned Your face from me.
You alone are my salvation.

You alone have redeemed me from disdain.
This shame has been lifted from me in Your love.

My accusers are no more.

Pray for Others

Often when we see a post on Facebook, we really don’t know the challenges, difficulties, or joys people are going through.

They may post something in response to their current thoughts, or maybe they craft a statement or a photo to portray a certain image. We all go through stuff, good and bad.

What if we commit to say a prayer for the people we connect with in a day on Facebook. How would that change their day?

We serve an awesome God, and we can stand in the gaps for others. God bless you all have a great day!

 “But let the righteous be glad: let them exult before God. Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.” (Psalm 68:3)
