Does it break Gods heart when a crying child falls silent because they finally understand that no one will answer?
Does it break Gods heart when He says to us "GO" and we say "not now"?
Does it break Gods heart to say to us "Be my hands and feet" and we say "not me"?
Does it break Gods heart when the lonely finally give up, when the least of these are forgotten, when we refuse to take the hand of our enemies and bring them out of the depths of their struggles?
Does it break Gods heart when we turn from Him again and again fearing our problems are bigger than our God?
Does it break Gods heart when we stay silent about our Love for Him, our Joy in Him, our Peace from Him, our salvation because of the death of His beloved Son?
Does it break Gods heart to know that what is dearest to His heart leaves ours unaffected?
The cry of the orphan, the loneliness of the widow, the suffering of the prisoner, the hunger of the poor, the hopelessness of the unredeemed? Do they break your heart like they do Gods?
I pray for myself, my loved ones, and for my dear friends that read this blog:
May that which breaks the heart of God break your heart as well!
1 John 3: 16-24
