MY HEART CRIES OUT

A Poem by Paul David Tripp

My heart cries out, but I am not afraid, discouraged, panicked, forgotten, alone, dismayed, or doubtful because in the din of a million voices from every place, in every situation, young and old, crying day and night in weakness, in alienation, in fear, and in distress, you are not overwhelmed, you are not distracted, you are not disgusted, you are not discouraged, you are not exhausted. But you listen, you hear, you attend to my cry in tenderness of mercy, in patience of spirit, and with generosity of love. You listen to my plea and you never turn away. But with power and wisdom and the tender heart of a Savior, you do this amazing thing-you answer.
With power and wisdom and the tender heart of a savior, you do this amazing thing-you answer.
THINK

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. (1 Peter 3:12)

PRAY

When do you cry out to the Lord? Do you ever slip into thinking that the Lord might not be able to handle your situation?
