My Writing Corner

My Writing Corner: The Stranger

Though I haven’t had time to write, I thought this would be a thought-provoking story to post. It is by an unknown author.

The story talks about something that goes on in many, many evangelical American families today who are caught up in the webs of the pop culture, media, and worldliness. I thought it was a good representation of the reality.

I can gladly say (and I humbly praise the Lord) that this is not the case for me and my family (and I’m sure for most of you girls too!)

Leave a comment and let me know what you think after you read the story.

  1. A Sinner’s Prayer
    =================

    Lost and adrift in a sea of despair,
    I search all around me but no one is there.
    No-one can hear my cry of pain,
    Still I hide my tears under cover of rain.

    So many times I’ve reached out for someone,
    But no one is ever there.
    I try to be strong but I can’t for long,
    And now I don’t even care.

    I’ve heard it said You are kind, Oh God,
    Full of mercy and grace.
    Have pity on me Oh God,
    As I try to seek Your face.

    Have mercy on me, Oh God,
    And wipe away all my sin.
    Hear my prayer and cleanse me Oh God,
    Cleanse me deeply from within.

    Breathe in me new life Oh God,
    As I kneel before Your throne,
    Have mercy on me Oh God,
    And show me the way to come home.

    Amen.

  2. I think I have read that story before; it is very thought provoking! I’m very thankful that the Lord led my parents to determine, shortly after their marriage, that our family would not have a TV. Thanks for sharing, Becky!
