Be Still Sunday–You are MORE

My friend Kim originally posted this….

Every time I've turned on my radio, be it in the car or at home, this song has played for the last two weeks. It's been running through my head day and night.

"You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade. "

I think of, and am prompted to pray, for several people whenever I hear it. Adults and children. People who have been hurt. People who have believed lies. People who are searching. People who need to be remade. People who need to know that it's only when they surrender their lives to Jesus ... can that happen.

People He created.

People He loves.

The very people He died for.

There is so much more I want to say to the flip side of this, but for fear of offending my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ (because that's not my heart), I will not.  But I will say, that being silent to an issue is not an answer. The Word says that once you know ... you-are-responsible.

Last year I shared about human trafficking, the number of people living without water, 147 million orphans, and the need for the body of Christ to come alongside of all those hurting – to truly disciple the young (teens need us more than just to entertain them – they need to be lifted out of the mire and shown what it means to sacrifice this world and truly live like a child of the MOST HIGH GOD!!!!), newly married and those with broken marriages, and train parents how to raise up strong arrows for His glory.  

So, if you read my blog last year – you now know too…will you please pray about coming alongside those who need you most – it doesn’t have to cost you a dime…but it will most certainly cost your time…PRAYER is the greatest gift we give each other. Everything needs to begin and end with prayer.  God will speak to your heart and show you exactly what He has for you this year and how you can be a part of shining His light, love, hope and glory to those around you and throughout the world.  

How will they ever know we are His if we never go?  Who will rescue the lost and lonely?  Who will stand up for the widow?  Who will love on the broken and help rescue their souls?  

Help them to know His love…one act of love at a time…will cause a ripple effect that can truly begin the change around the world we all talk about and pray to see.  

It begins with you and me…only by Your love they will know we are YOURS!!!!!!!
