Broken Dreams


For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare
and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

—Jeremiah 29:11

As children bring their broken toys with tears
for us to mend,

I brought my broken dreams to God because
He was my friend.

And instead of leaving Him in peace
to work alone,

I hung around and tried to help with ways
that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,
“How can you be so slow?”

“My child,” He said, “What could I do?
You never did let go!”

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن​, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
