I melt into his arms

O MIGHTY LORD, the world tells me to run, hide, do anything, but do not stop.

The world tells me, do not seek rest for your soul, it’s useless. There’s too much to do, too much to worry about.

The tempter haunts me. He tempts me to run away all on my own.

The voices shout, all is lost, danger is near, run, hide, hate. Old fears and unhealed wounds open up again.

I see bombs fall, smoke rise, and 6 million dead now from sickness. Bodies lie still on the street.

The hurt amplified by the insanity and vanity of the powerful, the corrupt, the bombmakers, the invaders, and the instigators gathering around to fan the flames of war.

We cheer for victims facing death and call them heroes with a meme.

We dance like children around a nuclear fire while the cost of living soars.

The devil plays us like a fiddle.

We all must answer for the blood of the innocents.

What shall I do then, O Lord? What shall I do?

What can I do in the face of such turmoil and pain?

First of all Lord, I ask you, I beg you, give me rest. Give me rest from it all.

It’s been two long years, and the light at the end of the tunnel grows dark again.

Let me rest in the place that restores me no matter the circumstance, no matter the pain.

I melt in your arms, in your tender grace.

And there you tell me, rest child. Rest easy.

You are loved beyond all measure.

Despite the betrayal, hypocrisy, and lies that swirl around like a hurricane, in the Lord Almighty, there is always rest.

Your soul is safe in the bosom of God. 

Then let my heart not be hardened, O Lord, despite the devastation, despite the hurt.

I see them pulling carts filled with cardboard piled sky high, digging in dumpsters looking for food or scrap metal.

Men, women, and children barely scraping by.

Let it not harden my heart, O Lord. Let me not look away.

And let me see your face in theirs.

May I not avert my gaze when you are there hurting right in front of me. 

Rise up, O Lord, rise up!

Strike down the tempter that tells me all is lost.

Cast out the evil one that says my hurt has no cure.

I reject the lies of the enemy, in the name of my Lord Jesus, who takes away the sins of the world.

By his blood, I am cleansed and restored.

This is not a fantasy or an easy way out.

It is the Good News of salvation for this once broken man.

You are the Resurrection and the Life.

May your Body feed me, O mighty Lord.

May your Body rise up, O blessed Lord.

May we pray and praise you like there’s no tomorrow.

May we rise up together to face the new, smoke-filled dawn.

Let us see with courage and clarity past the fog and deception.

Let us see you there, waiting for us to feed, heal, visit, and clothe you.

May we hold our heads high as our redemption draweth near.

In the name of our Almighty Father, his beloved Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit of life,

Amen.

  1. Thank you Vincent for another much needed word of encouragement in these current conditions of the world today. If the world hasn’t as yet demonstrated our dire need for our God and Savior Jesus, then this must BE the problem. Men think they’ve got all of this under their control, and we see just how much control that is when God simply says “Come to ME! Will we ever learn?

      1. I’m not afraid of my girlfriend it’s just a simple fact that I am just a little bit kind of concerned about the situation that she is in but I will give it up to God though.

  3. Thank you I really do appreciate it I’m not afraid it’s just that I will not tolerate a woman who is intelligent enough to do the things of what she can do on her own you see what I’m saying don’t give me wrong at all I love women I really do but

    Don’t put me in a predicament where you want me to choose between money and your love you see what I’m saying like don’t put me in a position where I have to choose between oh you want me to have your money or you think that I’m going to do something with your money that you want me to do with your money, you know what I’m saying like I seriously don’t want her money at all I don’t want my girlfriend’s money I really don’t and she’s making it out to seem that oh he just wants me to transfer money into the accounts so he can just run off and do what he want to do no I’m not like that I’m not like these people in this world who do that,

    If you want my help don’t act like and don’t put me in a predicament where I have to choose or you want me to choose or you have it in your head that I’m going to run off on you with your money you know what I’m saying,

    Like I want to see a person happy I’m not that desperate of a person to just steal from people especially their money I’m not going to steal a person’s money away from a person just because of how they act towards me and things of that nature if you want my help I’m going to give it,

    But I’m not going to tolerate a woman or a so-called woman that thinks that she’s better than everybody just because of what she doing this world yes she has a kid a daughter and yes she has the things that she wants needs and desires for and yes he’s very protective of her daughter I’m not going to disrespect her at any type of way any type of way shape or form or fashion and she knows that I mean I don’t know what else to tell her I don’t know what else to do but I’m not going to sit here and fake like everything is okay when it’s not especially on her side especially when her company management people is just don’t know or don’t understand what’s going on and they refuse to keep on not helping her now as far as she talking to them I think that she’s afraid to tell them what is really going on, but I’m just going to leave that up to God because God knows about what her situation is and I’m not going to keep on trying to do something that will not be able to get solved, I don’t know why she keep on telling me oh you need to not get upset what you mean not get upset you don’t tell me how to live my life or you don’t tell me how to feel you know what I’m saying you don’t tell me what to do I’m a grown man just like she is a grown woman and yes we have fears and failures in our lives and yes sometimes we misjudge things but I will not tolerate a woman or whoever that she thinks she is and yes Hollywood people are evil and nasty and disrespectful thinking that they are invisible all the time, thinking that they are better than someone just because they make a certain amount of money in this world money does not define of who You are, and yes money is the root of all evil, and I completely understand that,

    I just feel like that when you get money it misjudges or clouds your judgment about something that you should do I mean I don’t know what else to say and do for Jessica my girlfriend but I suggest that she needs to get it together,

    Please have me in your prayer and please pray for Jessica my girlfriend as well to get it together and do something about what she needs to be doing and having responsibilities both on her side and with me as well

    Thank you and you have a beautiful wonderful blessed day and our days to come
    Amen amen amen!! ✝️✝️✝️👑👑👑☮️🌎☮️🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿
