My Son, My Son


my son, my son
i know the road you take
the fragile path, the long sojourn
the weary ache and pang of loneliness
the despair you sometimes feel
when you sink beneath waves
of fear and emptiness
my son, my son
i know

  1. <3 [thought these words of His would be meaningful in light of this piece..]

    From Beth Moore's Praying God's Word Day by Day (today, 28th):

    The lead in threw me off a bit

    "If we keep fighting our own inner battles, we'll never have the strength to stand up and fight our true enemy."

    The body:

    "O God, how I thank Your for seeing my misery and hearing my cries" … "You are concerned about my suffering. Come down to rescue me, O Lord, and bring me to your place of promise (Exod. 3:7-8)."

    Didn't like the beginning of next part, edited to just

    "Who is like You, Lord – majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? Stretch out Your right hand and deal with my enemy, God! (Exod. 15:11-12)"

    He did for me today!

    "I thank you that those who belong to You are meant to be the head, not the tail! If I am obedient to You and do not turn aside from Your ways, You will not allow the enemy to keep me at the bottom. (Deut 28:13-14) Thank you for answering this and other prayers today Lord and I lift up "Your son" and pray the same for him. In Christ. Amen.
