In Mourning

“And Samuel went no more to see Saul until the day of his death. Nevertheless, Samuel mourned for Saul, and the Lord regretted He had made Saul King over Israel.” 1 Samuel 15:25

How often do I mourn for those who are disobedient?

Lord, we desire to not just write someone off who has turned away from You, but to grieve for them in prayer. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Grieving for the Strayed

Sure of what they’re doing
there are those who have strayed

feeling they are right
but they have turned away

this is not a time for anger
or self-righteous pride

but a time for mourning
staying at God’s side.

* Note *
The next chapter starts out . . .”Then the Lord said to Samuel, ‘How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel’?” 1 Samuel 16:1
hmmm . . .egg on face. ” 🙂
