Let me my love see the world outside of me...

Over this past weekend in St. Louis the Lord really began to open my eyes again to the suffering that's going on in this world. It's like for a season I had been blinded by my own selfishness and was just living in my own little world. On friday night there was a song that was sung and all they had to say was "let my love see the world outside of me" and that did it for me. All of a sudden my ears heard, my eyes saw, and my heart was moved.
You know the bible talks about it this way...

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

It's time we as christians stand up and realize we CAN and SHOULD do something to help. A lot of times you may feel like "What can I really do? I'm only one person"

Romans 5:19 says "For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous."


It's time that we as the body of believers who were designed and fashioned to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ here on this earth begin to make ourselves aware of the injustice and suffering going on around the world. Nothing moves God's heart more than one of His children suffering.

It's time we use what we have and be a voice for the voiceless!

*be looking for statistics and real life stories that I'll be posting.

I think alot of times I feel so helpless against all the sadness in the world so I try to pretend it's not as bad as I have heard. The least we can be doing is praying. It's one of the most powerful weapons we have. Thanks for the reminder Ami. I love you mucho!
