As we are lost, God is there for us. He longs to help us and respond to our needs. It is up to us to allow Him to do such a work.
Lord God, please help us love those in our family as You love us. Often times we learn about loving our neighbor and give to the needy, while our family suffers. I know God that those in need, need our help but our family does too. Help me learn to love my parents, brothers and sisters, wife and kids with Your love. May they no longer be left out but instead be sought after and cared for. May we be more in tune to their needs and respond in a big way. Give us over to truly know and understand more about their lives. This way, we will react and help them when things are going south. I am grateful for the Bible and the lessons learned from Solomon’s first wife in “Song Of Solomon 3”. I pray that as people read this chapter that they will be influenced by the love that was shown. Then, as they understand that their family’s needs are as important, may they respond to their needs in a similar way. I know that I need to do this more as well. As I look around my family, I can see that each one of their lives are in need of something. That is why I need Your counsel and guidance. Whatever their needs are now, let me find them out and help care for them. May Your peace rest upon their souls. I love You Lord. Amen.
Song Of Solomon 3:1-4 (KJV)
1 By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
2 I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
3 The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth?
4 It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.
