I'm speaking of those who we know could be so much happier if they just accepted some things in life. They could be happier if they accepted God in a fuller way. These folks seem to constantly make themselves unhappy and blame it on the world. Or they blame it on folks around them. They might even blame us. I don't even mind being blamed. I just want to see this person happy in the way I know it can be.
So, what is there to do when we've done all we can do? I guess the answer is to simply pray.
Pray now. Pray tomorrow. Pray always.
I may not ever see this miracle happen here on earth. Hopefully, I will see this person happy in eternity.
But for now, I am ON this earth. And it still bothers me and hurts me that I am helpless. Except to pray. Prayer gives us hope. And hope helps us to go forward each day.
Father, Sweet Jesus, Most Holy Spirit - please hear my prayer for this soul who would love you so much if you opened his heart. Meanwhile, please accept my prayers for what they are worth - hopeful pleas for a lighter spirit and trust that you are hearing my voice.
