Tonight we watched some "invisible children" updates. Invisible children is a group started to raise awareness of the child soldiers in Uganda. If you don't know about this please look into it (www.invisiblechildren.com), it will touch your lives and stir many emotions in you. The stories of the children always overwhelm me and bring me to tears but tonight the story affected me in new ways. Tonight, I know that I can do something. I am ready to go wherever He takes me. I am standing with arms wide PLEADING/BEGGING/WANTING Him to USE me. I don't know what this looks like but He has a purpose for my little life. I want to see His kingdom come to earth. I want JUSTICE.
Tonight I was broken for innocent children. But I was given HOPE. I was reminded that life on earth is temporary. That one day we will be in heaven worshipping as ONE. These lyrics ring true of what I felt tonight:
Broken people call His name
Helpless children praise the King
Nothing brings Him greater fame
When broken people call His name
Lift up your heads
Look on Him
