A little girl fights for her life
She is bound by seizure after seizure
She doesn't understand why she feels as she does
but she knows that she is surrounded by love

The doctors look for clues
The tests are inconclusive
The parents worry
The church prays

And what we have here
is a "family" coming together
to ask for God's special touch
His touch of love and tenderness
to bring this baby back to wholeness

What is the best we can hope for?
Of course, we pray for complete healing
but what do we hope for?
If we have eyes of hope,
we hope for complete healing
All we really know is that the little girl is sick
and she needs the Great Physician

Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
Psalm 1

How does God get our attention
when we surround ourselves
with yea sayers and encouragers?

How does God arrest our thoughts
to return to Him
when we have sinned
and failed to repent to be made whole?

How will God confront you
when you assure yourself
that you are saved by Grace
and have no need to repent?

How does God take hold of us
in that day when we believe
that we have started over
and all things are made new
but we have not made things right?

He has His ways and His ways are Just
He has His ways and His thoughts are for us, not against us
He has His ways and they are well beyond what we would hope
to return us to the Righteous walk He ordains

Settle in for a moment
and check your soul
Is there sin that binds you,
clouds your vision,
causes you to reject Truth and those who speak it?

Wash yourselves with the Blood of Jesus Christ
for I tell you the Truth, if you belong to Him,
He will do WHATEVER
is necessary to return you to His Ways,
to intimacy with Him,
to a sacrificial, prayerful, Spirit-led
walk with Him
because He loves us more than life itself
