"Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God."
Bob Pierce, World Vision founder
I love this quote and really want to be able to say it honestly, but oh it hurts so much!
There is so much hurt in the world....how can my heart not be broken by things happening not just across the world, but in my own backyard:
kids with no home to call their own
kids who yell, kick, and hit as their way to cope with abuse
kids who swear and threaten others because of ????
kids who have no one to love them
kids that are bullied
kids that feel like that they will never succeed
kids who don't get a good meal at night
kids with disabilities that struggle to learn each day
It is reality and it is not just far away in another country. I don't want to believe it. I don't know how to deal with it and make it better.
I feel like I am not enough...I am weak...I am unable...I am overwhelmed...
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
