Just found out about this ministry in Uganda. It is just getting started and looks really cool. Will you be in prayer for them? They are focusing on feeding and loving the poorest of poor in Uganda. I've been feeling led in a more specific direction lately. I feel especially called to feed and love on these children. I believe God has given me a gift of milk that His children are in need of. I want to share that gift. Chad and I have been praying about who to take a trip to Africa with.........maybe these servants?......I emailed them.......we'll see.
Interesting.....The music on this video is Chad's favorite band....David Crowder*Band.....playing his favorite song.......You Never Let Go. Side Note: Our family is going to see them in concert in Birmingham on Aug. 7. The kids are huge fans as well and they are so excited!
REALIZE Lord, make me an instument of your peace! Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light' and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. -Francis of Assisi
True Fasting Isaiah 58: 6 "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness [a] will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. "If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
11 The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
"Blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear." Matthew 13:16
"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12
"Give me your eyes for just one second. Give me your eyes so I can see, everything that I keep missing. Give me your love for humanity. Give me your arms for the broken-hearted, ones that are far beyond my reach. Give me your heart for the ones forgotten. Give me your eyes so I can see." lyrics from Brandon Heath
I am blessed to be loved, saved, and adopted by The King.
I am married to a wonderful man who loves and listens to God and me. I have been richly blessed with 4 amazing children who continually show me what undconditional love looks like and daily challenge me to grow. God has given me a passion for the poor, a heart for the forgotten children, and a responsibility to share His love with a dying world. I long to experience the heart of God.
