Lord show me what you want me to do….
Yeah, I cried over this one this morning, then shared that link with you. My heart is literally broken. I know that everything is for God’s glory and I’m struggling because I just cannot see His glory here. I am a mess. I’m with you, wondering what I can do. I just don’t know.
And I’m thinking… Is this happing so we as the church stand up and act? I know it is a result of sin. I get that. I know there are bad people in this world.

I would love to get together and pray and brainstorm about how we can give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves.
[…] I confess that I watched part of this video clip and couldn’t finish it. I want too. I want to be aware and be part of the world that fights […]
