Lamentations 5:21

Lamentations 5:21. “Restore us to yourself, Lord, that we may return; renew our days as of old”

Why an entire book on weeping for consequences of a nation’s sin? Because weeping is a necessary step toward repentence and repentence restores our relationship with God. So before a nation that has been neglectful of their God can return to Him, they must first be sorry that they screwed up. Thus Lamentations exists to emphasize that very important point. It is a call to knees. A sorrowful acknowledgment of wrong. And even though it has this mournful purpose, wrought with years of devastation and misery, it has these beautiful pockets of hope in God, of restoration, of hope for the future. They are sandwiched in the weeping so are easily overlooked, but what a great example of the beauty of God and that sorrow may last for a night but joy comes in the morning. We all must mourn and be sorry so we can make it right and restore our relationship with God. Then, what a beautiful world we would live in!❤

Restoration

There is a verse that says “If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.

With this verse in mind, I have an ambitious Spiritual goal of starting a revival and getting us Christians back to God. As we do our job, God will heal our land.

God gave me this song, which I have posted on YouTube as ” Lord, We’re Sorry.” Here are the lyrics:
Lord, we’re sorry when we’ve given to the devil gifts from You.
Lord, we’re sorry for placing ourselves as idols above You.
Lord, we want to humble ourselves, seek and pray and turn to You.
Now we ask You, Lord forgive us. Show us mercy, show us You.

Please forgive us. Lord, please heal our land.
Please, Lord help us. Lord, we need Your hand.

Lord, we humbly come. All of us as one.
Lord, we come to give our lives and country back to You.
There’s no greater need that we have on earth.
Jesus, save our lives. Cover our sins with Your glory.

Lord, we’re sorry when we’ve let our own agendas block our view.
Lord, we’re ashamed when we’ve spoken harsh words to some lambs of Yours.
Lord, we’re sorry for every path we’ve taken away from You.
Now, we ask You, Lord, restore us. Show us mercy. Lead with truth.

Please forgive us. Lord, please heal our land.
Lord, please help us. Lord, we need Your hand

Lord, we humbly come. All of us as one.
Lord, we come to give our lives and could try back to You.
There’s no greater need that we have on earth.
Jesus, save our lives. Cover our sins with Your glory.

That is the song God’s Spirit wrote in my heart, so I will be singing it every chance I get. I believe the time of the end is here. I believe that the Father has it all in His hands. However, I believe we must wake us and get ourselves right with God and show people Him in us. It should not look like the world. We should not be sinning, arguing, wrestling with addictions, selfish. We as Christians have a primary responsibility on this planet… Lifting up Christ and winning souls for His kingdom. Everything else is temporary.
