This world is a great sculptor’s shop. We are the statues and there’s a rumor going around that some of us are someday going to come to life.
Last week I went to a protest regarding the ill treatment of refugees. What it turned into for me and the two friends I was with was a proclamation of our love for those facing persecution.
Jesus is about radical, redemptive love not only for refugees but for everyone. Our government might make our laws but they cannot stop us from pouring out our love on a nation that is parched and dry, and love can make a difference that policy and procedure can’t take away.
… The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-7 NIV)
So let my brokenness display your righteousness
‘Cause I can’t do this on my own
And Lord I will say yes out in the wilderness
I’m standing on your strength O Lord…
How can you explain the sun to someone who has never experienced it?
I feel numb. I feel isolated. I feel like I am never going to be good enough. The worst thing is that I know it’s my fault.
