I am here
Father, I pray that all war on this earth would end
That we would all live in peace and harmony
We have to stop this killing of the soul
To know that only in loving You can we truly be made whole
I turn the TV on and the stories are all the same
Of hatred and indifference, of poverty and pain
I see the crying mothers holding dying babies in their arms
Children searching through a garbage dump for rotting food
Teenagers selling their bodies to survive
The growing sea of hopelessness and despair
People in the hell of their addictions believing no one cares
The abused who ask as they cry out in their agony, Please, won’t anyone love me?
Lord, what can we do when so many are suffering? Then, He speaks to my heart to say this word to you, that you can be there for all those who are dying a little more each day, for all who search for hope and a meaning to their life.
People of the earth, hear me as I say to you, the problems are many, the solutions seem so few. But this one thing all of you can do. Love everybody as I always love you. The critics will say it’s too simple, that the problems of this world are too complex. That’s when I want you to look them in the eye and say, “We can always give everyone a gift that never needs repaid. It’s the gift of love that can be in every heart, that gives each struggling soul a brand new start.”
There can be a brand new hope that lives in the hearts of those who cannot cope, who cannot see the light in their darkness and despair, who feel that no one cares. When they say to you where is love answer them this way; it is in my heart who cares and will never go away, who says I’ll be that strong arm as long as you need me. That’s the call of love that will set us all free.
The love of God is for the rich and for the poor, for all who can’t find their way to Christ the door. For in opening that door you will get a gift no amount of money on this earth can buy; it’s the gift of love that comes from Father Adonai.
So brothers and sisters, this is my prayer for you, that when a hurting soul comes to you and says, “There is no love in this world for me, you will say the three words all the suffering long to hear. I AM HERE. I AM HERE.

About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. CandidateI enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
