love them like Jesus

There is so much pain in the world. We all know someone who's hurting. At any given time there are numerous people we could (and need to) be praying for. People we should be standing beside, helping them get through the dark shadows.

However, sometimes we can be at a loss. How do we help them? What can we say?

Lord, give me wisdom..."Love them like Jesus."


the love of her life is drifting away
they're losing the fight for another day
the life that she's known is falling apart
a fatherless home, a child's broken heart
-
you're holding her hand, you're straining for words
you're trying to make sense of it all
she's desperate for hope, darkness clouding her view
she's looking to you
-
just love her like Jesus, carry her to Him
His yoke is easy, His burden is light
you don't need the answers to all of life's questions
just know that He loves her and stay by her side
love her like Jesus, love her like Jesus
-
the gifts lie in wait, in a room painted blue
little blessing from Heaven would be there soon
hope fades in the night, blue skies turn to gray
as the little one slips away
-
you're holding their hand, you're straining for words
you're trying to make sense of it all
they're desperate for hope, darkness clouding their view
they're looking to you
-
just love them like Jesus, carry them to Him
His yoke is easy, His burden is light
you don't need the answers to all of life's questions
just know that He loves them and stays by their side
love them like Jesus
-
Lord of all creation holds our lives in His hands
the God of all the nations holds our lives in His hands
the Rock of our salvation holds our lives in His hands
He cares for them just as He cares for you
-
so love them like Jesus, love them like Jesus
you don't need the answers to all of life's questions
just know that He loves them and stay by their side
love them like Jesus, love them like Jesus
