I love music. I love listening to music, I love playing music, I love watching music, I love almost any kind of music. Pandora is on more than the TV at our house. One of my favorite artists is Third Day. Some years ago they released a song called Cry Out to Jesus.
Here is the chorus for those not familiar with the song.
There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
And love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He’ll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus
The words to this song got me thinking about those kids in foster care and those adopted from hard places. Imagine how much they could heal in our homes if our homes were places where the helpless could find hope and the weary could find rest. Where the broken hearted could be loved. Where grace, forgiveness and mercy were freely given. Because if our homes are places where these kids can find hope, rest, love, grace, forgiveness and mercy healing is a natural result.
