Groanings too Deep for Words

20131127-080730.jpgYesterday.A funeral. Of a friends child.Lost to us in circumstances unbearably tragic.Words cannot express.Later in the day.A moment of solitude in the car.The grief, the weight, the groaning, crowds in on me.How to pray? There is no way to fix this, to soften death's harsh blow.So I sitIn the silence.And in the groaning too deep for words.Holding the unspeakable before God.Crumpled there, crushed under its weightResting there, pressed by the weight of His His presence.Grateful for the Holy SpiritWho intercedes for us in our weakness.With groanings too deep for words.Maranatha, come Lord Jesus.
