This man of God is known as the weeping prophet,
He had a lot of heartache and no money in his pocket.
He didn’t have a wife or children, not even any friends,
He had nothing to do or nowhere to go on the weekends.
Jeremiah is the name of this lonely prophet sent by God,
He worked long and hard, but he didn’t get any applause.
He was sent to warn the people of Judah about what was to come,
They were going to be punished for their sinful actions that were dumb.
The prophet warned … and warned … and then warned some more,
But the people wouldn’t listen, in his face they slammed the door.
They would rather listen to the false prophet, Hananiah instead,
Since he had promised they were going to be alive and not dead.
Jeremiah’s burden was heavy, so he grew weary, angry, and tired,
But he never gave up or lost hope, and he never got fired.
Being one of God’s prophets, Jeremiah faced very rough times,
He was beaten and punished, even though he didn’t do the crimes.
” ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ “ Jeremiah 29:11

Jeremiah was the youngest prophet God used to deliver His words. If God can use Jeremiah, He can use “YOU!”
