March 21, 2019 Jeremiah 4:9-10, 19-28 Rev. Erin Counihan
I’m not sure why….
Okay, actually, I know exactly why,
But I wish it wasn’t so,
I wish we didn’t need these kind of threats.
I wish we could trust wisdom and guidance.
I wish we could accept good and faithful teaching.
I wish we didn’t need God’s terrible, emotional, raw appeals,
I wish we didn’t need God to scare us
To be convinced
And so I hear these cries.
“My anguish, my anguish,
I writhe in pain!
Oh, the walls of my heart!”
I hear them.
we need it, though….
Prayer: Lord, help us listen, help us to hear, help us to change. AMEN.
