i see them hardening their hearts
disobeying Your loving commands
not caring whom they hurt
whom they damage in this hideous crossfire

i understand Your grief
grief over hardness of heart
in a way I never have before

You want to give them good things
they refuse it

i grieve
but not as You grieve
over the destructive choices made

Lord, keep me
help me to be broken before you
to live in godly humility
not lifted up in pride, thinking i am standing strong
when really i am oh so frail

Lord, give me wisdom
help me to choose Your ways
to observe with Your righteousness
to triumph in Your truth
to love as You love me
to be filled with Your peace
