FACE TO FACE: Intimate Moments with God 7/31

Scripture reading: Genesis 2:18–25

Lament for Marriage

So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence . . . and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will be heard in you no more. (Revelation 18: 21–23)

I saw a marriage yesterday, So beautiful—I had to pray:
“Lord, here I see your sovereign plan; A bride in white, a faithful man;The two are one, then one is three,
A fruitful, holy family.” And all who saw it celebrated
The wondrous thing God had created.

But as the music fades away A different picture comes today.
For marriage has been redefined! Man with man: it blows my mind. And women too, will now be wed Not with men, but girls instead. What once was holy, clean and pure Now has a very strange allure.

The architects of this foul deed,                                                           Defying culture, logic, creed;
They shut their ears and closed their eyes                                         And so pretended to be wise.

And what is tragic, what is worse,                                                        The people followed; oh the curse!                                                       And with one stroke of legal pen,                                                      We’ve normalized what once was sin.

There are some things you can’t not know!
Just ask the children what is so.
Or read your history—it will tell
How cultures thrive and do so well.

Or think of our anatomy,
And parts that fit so beautifully.
Or open up the Sacred Book,
It’s crystal clear: just take a look.

So join me in my plaintive song,
And grieve the triumph of the wrong.
The battle’s lost; but not the war!
Tomorrow we will fight some more.

God’s truth will finally prevail,
And all will see, he cannot fail.
But for today, I weep and pray,
“Have mercy, Lord!” is all I say.

 

If [the gay strategists] can redefine a key term like “marriage,” they win. Control language and you control thought; control thought and you control action; control action and you control the world. —Peter Kreeft

point to ponder • Same-sex unions are, by definition, barren; thus the more frequently they occur the more quickly will our civilization cease to exist.

prayer focus • Pray for those who are “in the trenches,” fighting for Truth. Pray in anticipation for God’s truth to prevail.
