But Jesus said, “Let the children come”
Matthew 19:13-15 One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could lay his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him. But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” And he placed his hands on their heads and blessed them.
For anyone suffering today, especially the children of Ukraine.
Blessed are the ones who do not bury all the broken pieces of their heart
Blessed are the tears of all the weary, pouring like a sky of falling stars.
Blessed are the wounded ones in mourning, brave enough to show the Lord their scars
Blessed are the hurts that are not hidden, open to the healing touch of God.
Blessed are the one who walk in kindness, even in the face of great abuse
Blessed are the deeds that go unnoticed, serving with unguarded gratitude.
Blessed are the ones who fight for justice, longing for the coming day of peace
Blessed is the soul that thirst for righteousness, welcoming the last, the lost, the least.
Blessed are the ones who suffer violence, and still have strength to love their enemies
Blessed is the faith of those who persevere, tho they fall, they’ll never know defeat.
The kingdom is yours, the kingdom is yours.
Hold on a little more, this is not the end.
Hope is in the Lord, keep your eyes on him.
