This song has been going around in my head all this past week. Maybe it reflects my thoughts on where we need to turn to with what has been happening in the world and in our communities.

A member of our congregation passed away this week, he was a 46 year old father of 4. He had a non cancerous brain tumor that turned him from a vital healthy man into one that could barely talk and walk. They tried every treatment they could but his healing on this earth wasn’t meant to be, his healing will come in Heaven.

His illness has really touched our family, we are thankful that God has taken him from his pain and suffering but we think of his wife and children and I ask you to pray for them if you can.

The things happening around the world and locally should make us focus on God and the fact that He is there for us, we need not fear or worry or doubt,

“He Will Listen To You”

When the weight of this world crashes down on you
God will listen to you
When the sky turns black and your thoughts turn blue
He will listen to you

He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you

When the river of tears cannot be contained
He will listen to you
Like a drowning man in the pouring rain
God will listen to you

He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you

When the light explodes in a world gone wrong
He will listen to you
When your heart beats strong with a grateful song
God will listen to you

He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you

(Nickel Creek Lyrics)

Let us cry out to God for our nation, our family and people in need.

 Don’t hold back because He will listen to you.

Blessings dear friends.

Psalm 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry.

Psalm 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Psalm 34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

  1. How precious that He will listen to us! It reminds me of another song’s lyrics, “Oh, what peace we often forfeit, oh, what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer.” Thank you for this sweet post. I am deeply sorry about the loss of your friend. May God wrap that family in His loving arms and hold them extra close.

    Our country (and yours) are in need. We as a church are in need. You are absolutely correct. But the mighty army of the Lord will fight our battle as we cry out to Him. Thank you for this encouragement dear sister.
