Oh how My Heart is aching for the motherless and fatherless children; for those who never knew the love and genuine concern of parental caring.
All over the world the children and the youth are restless. What kind of a world will it be when they reach adulthood?
What will they do? What will they do?
Many now, have no one who cares for them. Many now, have parents who were abused and abuse them.
Many are lonely, bored and neglected; uncared for.
Who will care for the youth?
Who will care for the fatherless children?
As the world around them crumbles politically,economically, environmentally, spiritually, and emotionally, and people grow more selfish everyday, WHERE will the children have refuge?
In the great depression many were abandoned. In history, when there were plagues, wars, famines, disasters, they were abandoned.
The longing in their eyes and the poverty of their souls and bodies and spirits cry out behind those telltale, hungry eyes.
“Who will open their eyes?” says The LORD.
“Who will not refuse the longing?” says The LORD.
“Who will Care for My Children?” says The LORD.
“Who will go for Us?” says The LORD.
“Who will ease their pain?” says The LORD.
“Who will feed My Lambs?” says The LORD.
