Vision. We need you.

"But we have this treasure in jars of clay,
to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us."
2 Corinthians 4:7

If anyone is reading this,
Can you please pray for us.
We need vision.

My heart is just besides myself.
As I do my daily duties and carry on with
'Life as we know it', there is a constant dripping in the back of my mind.

The Orphan. The Child. The Boy. The Girl.
Hungry. Crying. Cold. Afraid. Lost. Scared. Confused. Blind. Deaf. Sick.

My hearts bleeds inside.

It all sounds so grim.
For so many precious little lives.

But my life keeps going on. It just seems wrong.

We need vision.

I will never be the same.
I can not go on in life thinking it's about me anymore.

Jesus, we need you.
Jesus, I need you.
I know you care.
These are Your children
And You love them.

Would you please use me?
Would you please use us?

I know I'm not a perfect parent.
I am SO far from even being a good parent.
I am a selfish, wretched sinner that needs your touch daily.
But I trust you for your grace. Daily

All this to say, dear reading friend,
Would you please pray for us.

We need a vision from heaven.

So many things we need to KNOW!

Not OUR will, Lord, but YOURS!

"We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; ,,, So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison"
2 Corinthians 7:16-17

Word from the Lord- to myself (and you perhaps) ♥

JESUS must be Glorified!
JESUS must be Worshiped!
JESUS must be Magnified!
JESUS must be Honored!

It must be about JESUS!


If it's not centered, birthed, bathed and pursued
by and for JESUS,
than it's worthless.
Without Jesus and the Cross, nothing matters.



James 1:27 ~ If your religion is ANYTHING BUT
Christ-centered service to the needy, poor, less fortunate,
hungry, naked, thirsty and heartbroken than your "religion"
is in VAIN!
No feast or old-testament tradition will matter on Judgment day.
Jesus will look at you and ask,
"What did you do for MY names sake."

Satan's BIGGEST trick today is,
"Get them off the Lord and onto foolish practices,
all in the name of ‘obedience to God’."

You’ve fallen into the hands of the Enemy!

Oh that my eyes would be fixed upon Him.

"looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith,"
Hebrews 12:2

Proverbs 24:12

This is just too huge to not post.

Something is happening.

God is moving!

My prayer, "Lord, will you move us too?"

"...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
