I am grappling with many things in my Spirit...

Orphan Care
Water Crisis
Life & Death
Sex Trade

and why God's people (self included) don't care more! 

Why we don't cry louder.  

...I sometimes feel like I MUST post something...or you 2 readers will forget about me. 

And with so much HURTING in my heart, and not knowing HOW to put that hurt into words...how do I share it with you. 

...I found out by "coincidence" {insert eye roll here-don't believe in those} that one of my favorite artists will be in my town for FREE tonight! Thank you Jesus! 

I was looking for a song to share with you...and it found me (by coincidence meeting both needs)

I need eyes to be my guide
I need a voice that’s louder than mine
I need hope I need You
Cause I can’t do this alone

Lyrics to Grace by Phil Wickham :
The sky is grey and the light is far
The sea is a rage within my heart
I turn my sight to the crashing waves
I cry in the night just to be saved

I need eyes to be my guide
I need a voice that’s louder than mine
I need hope I need You
Cause I can’t do this alone

Grace I call Your name
Oh won’t Your smile fall over me
I’m cracked and dry on hands and knees
Oh sweet grace rain down on me I need You grace

I pray for dawn a new day to live
I pray for mercy only Jesus gives
Though darkness falls and a million cry
I believe over all there’s a greater light shining for us

Come down and save me

I have a hard time with that as well. I want to save the world and I am starting to realize that I can't. That's God's domain. But the little things will change more than we ever realized.

"There is no such thing as doing great things in this world. We can only do small things with great love."
Mother Teresa

LOVE this! Love the song, and love your message!

I am sitting here trying to figure out what I can do. I don't have money to do anymore, I don't have the kind of job that will allow me to GO more than once a year, and I'm struggling with the heart and compassion to desiring MORE. So, I'm stuck.

And I hate that.

But I pray!

I agree, how does this happen, in the world???
