Ouch Lord, why do you always lead me to Scriptures like these? What am I to do? They don't want to eat with me and I, don't want to compromise. Look around? All I see is people Lord. Some are smirking and mocking me. Some are rolling their eyes when I look their direction. What am I supposed to see? I hear people talking gossip and cursing and making fun of others, all things I don't want to participate in. What do you see Lord? What am I supposed to see?
Love! How in the world do you see love in these people? I know your blood was shed for their sins. I know you died to save them. I know you want to reach them. Yes, now I see. Oh God, these people are so precious in your sight. Help me not to weep. Not here. Not in front of them. They'll think I'm crying because I'm sitting alone and they're teasing me. Oh God, I can feel your love and compassion for these people. God please, don't let these tears come to my eyes. This is embarrassing. I'm about to cry. Oh God, your love is overwhelming me. Oh God, I can't help but weep. Now I'll never be able to reach these people. They probably think I'm a major nerd. Pray! You want me to pray. I'm feeling so much right now. I feel your love and compassion for these people. I feel totally humiliated that I'm crying. I feel frustrated that I don't know how to reach them with your love. And now, you want me to pray.
Okay, I'll get on my knees and pray, but I'm sure, a teacher will come and probably take me to the school psychologist and advise my parents to get me some psychological counseling.
“Lord, help me pray. Father God, you love these people so much. They are so special to you. God you know the hurts and pains they have. Inside they are like sick people who need a doctor. Doctor Jesus, you came to save them. I ask you for each one of their salvations. Touch them in a special way. Heal them inside and out, wherever they need your healing. Fill them with understanding of your love for them. Open their eyes to see who you are. Lord, you did it for me, and I'm nobody. So I know you can do it for them. God let them know how special they are to you. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.”
Lord, I'm afraid to open my eyes. I know everyone must think I'm crazy. Grant me the boldness to get up off my knees, open my eyes and face these people.
Wow, everyone is looking. I was hoping some wouldn't notice. I suddenly feel like laughing.
“I'm sorry everyone. I suddenly saw how much God loves you and was overwhelmed. I know you all probably think I'm a nut case, but I'm not. I'm just a Christian who feels God's love for you.”
Wow, their reaction's not as bad as I thought it would be. Some are laughing and some are mocking, but some see. They actually see. I can see it in their eyes. Oh Lord, I see love. Help me guide them to you.
