What do you think when you read about the very public downward spiral of Britney Spears? What thoughts do you have when you see her drunken tirades, over-exposed body parts, trips in and out of rehab? And today, when you read she allegedly tried to hang herself, what are you thinking?
Here are my thoughts...
- Where are the people in her life that will lift her up rather than pull her down?
- Why isn't there anyone around her that will tell her how much she matters, how precious her life is?
- How does a daddy watch this happen to his little girl?
- Is her life so public that it is impossible for her to get real help?
My prayer: Oh God, bring someone into Britney's life that will speak truth into her; someone that will love her for who she is, not for what she has or how she looks; someone who will lift her up toward you; someone who will give her hope and purpose for living. I pray this not so that Christians' around the world can claim her as their most recent poster-child (oh God, please no), but so that she will understand how precious she is to You and how her life matters.
