Endorsements

"Poetry is the expression of the heart and mind of a person. When that person reflects on the person and work of Jesus the expression is hopeful and redemptive. As an artist who uses words to express, I found joy in reading this work. This work connects with the human condition in a unique and awesome way."

- Lecrae, hip-hop recording artist

"Paul Tripp has been delivering soul reaching wisdom and timeless encouragement centered around the Gospel and Grace of Jesus, from which I have greatly benefited. In this current collection of meditations he artfully paints pictures with his words that resonate deep into our souls as he walks with us through the pain and the struggles of this world while helping us see the glory of God’s Grace."

- TobyMac, hip-hop recording artist

"As with a timeless hymn lyric Paul has the great ability to grasp the vast riches of biblical truth and distill it for us in creative, compelling and wonderfully practical ways. His writing has regularly shaped how we think as individuals, parents and song-writers. - Keith & Kristyn Getty"

- Keith & Kristyn Getty, modern hymn writers, including In Christ Alone

"As I read these meditations, I couldn't help but wonder if these were the types of prayers the Holy Spirit speaks on our behalf when our groans are too deep for words. My Heart Cries Out is a beautiful, honest, and grace-filled collection of reflections from a heart that has been near to the Lord for many years. Your heart will cry out indeed; cry out for joy and thanksgiving as you read the pages of this wonderful book."

- Trillia Newbell, author, Sacred Endurance, If God Is For Us, and God's Very Good Idea

Read A Sample Meditation

My heart cries out,
but I am not
afraid,
discouraged,
panicked,
forgotten,
alone,
dismayed,
or doubtful
because in the din
of a million voices
from every place
in every situation
young and old
crying day and night
in weakness,
in alienation,
in fear,
and in distress,
you are not
overwhelmed,
you are not
distracted,
you are not
disgusted,
you are not
discouraged,
you are not
exhausted.
But you listen,
you hear,
you attend to
my cry
in tenderness of
mercy,
in patience of
spirit,
and with generosity of
love
you listen to my
plea
and you never
turn
away.
But with power and wisdom
and the tender heart of a
Savior,
you do this amazing thing—
you answer.

For Further Reflection

When do you cry out to the Lord?

Do you ever slip into thinking that the Lord might be “overwhelmed,” “distracted,” “discouraged,” or “exhausted” by your situation?

For further study and encouragement, read Genesis 16.
