“Oh, that I might have my request,
that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
That it would please God to crush me . . .” Job 6:8
I have been in crushing times when relief didn’t come like I wanted.
Lord, I can’t always understand what is going on in my life or the lives of loved ones, and so I cry out for Your mercy. And here’s a simple poem . . .
The Crushing Places
We may not know
what it was like
to be Job
in a place
so desperately thin
he’d ask God
to crush him
but for those that
that are there
we cry out
and hold them
