Will she ruin her ballet slippers by wearing them around the neighborhood? What can the baby wear that won’t cost lots of money? Will the weather be warm enough to go without a coat? I’d hate to put a coat over such cute costumes.
These were the questions swirling around in my head the day before my children embarked on their candy filled jaunt through the neighborhood. I say “were” because now they are gone. They have been replaced. Replaced with a sense of concern.
I watched the following video on another blog today. I can’t get it out of my head. Now I’m asking myself, how can I make a difference?
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40 NIV
Oh, I wanna be a sheep.
In tears I weep and pray!!!
Posts like this are so hard to get the response from others but may God move with many blessings to truly make a difference for Sam & Ester and so many others…ohh LORD forgive us!
It makes what we worry about, seem so petty. So stupid. I'm worrying about where my childrens halloween baskets are, and about how messy the house is going to get this weekend. When there are MILLIONS of people who are worrying about whether or not they are going to make it through the night. Worrying about what and how they are going to feed their children today. It's awful, and it makes me want to sell everything I have, pack my family up and go DO SOMETHING for these people.
We are ALL called to do SOMETHING. I just have to figure out what it is GOD want's me to do, now that he has opened my eyes.
"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12
Isaiah and Anna watched it with me and Isaiah asked if we could go see them. Oh how I would love to take them in and am so glad they are getting help. This is absolutlely heartbreaking and humbling.
