Watch this.
click here.

This is what we are missing. 
We sit in pews and wonder why nothing is happening.
We tell someone 'I will pray for you', go home, and forget.
We watch TV. Images of starving children, Video of out-of-control bushfires, The sounds of screaming people running in midst of a war-torn country. And we sit dry eyed and say 'oh those poor people'.
Do you really think that is what God is doing?
Does He sit in heaven, and see that beautiful child He created starving to death and think 'oh dear...'.
I think not.
Imagine a parent, whose child has passed away at a young age. How much does that parent weep for the child they have lost?
We are unrighteous. God is perfect. We mourn over death of our loved ones - how much more do you think God does so?
We HAVE to catch His heart.
We cannot live and profess to be Christians and not catch His heart.
Father God, break our heart for what breaks yours. May we weep tears for those children who starve. May we weep tears for those who run from the enemy who strives to kill them. May we weep for those who have no hope. May we weep for those who don't know you. Father, but may we also get off our seat and DO something about this. We pray in your precious name, Amen.

Hi Rachael,

Thanks for that post!! It is sooo true.
But I've always asked: What can I do besides pray for those people?
But that's part of finding out what God's destiny is for me I guess.. :)

Rachael, you are so right. It's so hard when you think, "I want to help them...." and then you ask yourself, "but how?" and then you forget about it. Thank you sooooooooo much for posting this!
