Since that trip where God broke my heart for the hurting, the "poor", I have been looking to make a difference everyday. That statement sounds so generic, it makes me sick, in a way. Yes, I want to impact people. Here, there, everywhere. Doing what it takes to show God's love. It's that agape that compels me. I have honest, genuine motivations. But with this burden...it has been an avalanche of feelings, very overwhelming, if you will, as I deal with and process all the emotions that come along with this burden. In my mind it is like a giant rollercoaster of highs and lows, loop to loops, fast-paced, slow climbs, track of tears, the oceans of emotions that come with conviction, guilt, awareness, and now call to action.
I want to act on this burden. How can I not move my heart, my hands, my feet to action? But where do I start? I have sponsored a child with Mission of Mercy, because my support for Eskarlin she will have a better life, and it will make a difference in her family's life. My daily prayer is this....to be a part of something holy.
So now what? I am starting now....starting small or large.....looking for the "poor" among us.God guide my steps, thoughts, my actions, my words.
