Shattered Rescue

My heart is broken.

I have long been extending the rope of Truth to
a friend caught up in the floodwaters of lies.

My friend didn’t recognize Truth as a rescue
but heard the voice of love and drew closer.

Then along came a loud maniac in a speed boat,
separating us by pushing this friend away from Truth
and deeper into the river of deceit.

I am left weeping on the shore as my friend spins dangerously
out of control in the rushing waters, utterly unaware
that this river is swiftly running toward fatal falls.

My heart’s cry and fervent prayer is that there will be another friend downstream who will love enough to extend the Truth rope
and that my friend will recognize rescue and grasp the Truth with both hands…never letting go…because life truly does depend on it.

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
John 14:6
