Jesus, Saves Us by Grieving Incarcerated parent
Hello From the INside :
I wrote this when Alice Johnson was released and we thought
maybe we were being "blessed".
I wrote it before my daughter was lost to Covid-19 this year
I also wrote it before the "FSA was to be used for those
INside to benefit and reduce long excessive sentences."
One day lost in so many ways...I cried out to the Lord.
Lord, I would say, "I can't afford to waste yet another day."
The Lord from on high said to me, "So don't cry to me
just kneel and pray."
Lord, I said, " I believe in my heart in what I say, but I can't get my mind to follow."
Sometimes I say Lord "the words feel so hollow. Lord, there is nothing there."
I just grip my hands harder with a heaviness I can't explain. I rack my brain
to say cautiously so as not to be upset "Lord don't you care?"
The Lord said, "Of course, I care."
I wait and say with trepidation "Lord it's not fair. I pray so hard I
gnash my teeth together. Please I am begging you, Lord, to make
it clear. You tell me not to fear that you will never fail us but all
I hear is weeping and wailing everywhere."
My darling precious daughter said the Lord. "You of all people
need to understand since you have been locked up I have blessed
every word that has come from your mouth...to your hands from
your heart. So isn't that as good as any place to start? Remember
the most important thing Trust me because the daughter I sent my son
your brother Jesus to save YOU all...So Justice is up ahead."
But, Lord all I see is some rugged cross in my path."
The Lord shook his head back and forth in despair.
"Daughter you outa use more than just your eyes...that's
wise because if you look with a heart of faith."
The Lord pointed for me to approach that rotted old
wooden cross saying,
"There is the light, the truth and it's not in your way
of the path but it is the way toward your path."
"Lord so you say but still I do not understand."
The Lord pointed, again saying "daughter be not afraid
before you are the way move ahead not back.
That CROSS you see, next to that
TREE will give upon what you lack...
So never lose hope when you can't cope
God is there everywhere and no matter
what the situation he will always care
for you and me...Pray and see.
Have a blessed day
remember God will always make a way
