Broken Heart

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”" Isaiah 52:7

So today is the day.  It is TOMS anual no shoes day.  People all over the world are taking off their shoes and walking in someone else's shoes, or lack thereof, today.  Millions of children have to walk miles barefoot to just get water.  Many schools won't even let kids go to school if they dont have shoes.  This is the third year that I have done this, and I must say it is the toughest.  The last two years, I would just walk around the hallway at school and then get in my car and go home.  However, this year I have to walk across campus, and I must say it is rough, literally.  My feet hurt so bad.  I wish that the pain that I feel on my feet today, I would feel everyday in my heart.  It is my prayer that Christ would break my heart for what breaks His.  I pray that the callouses would be on my feet, not my heart.  I pray that I might fully understand the pain that people in this world go through, the hunger, the thirst, the heartache, that I might be able to better serve them the way that Christ truly called us to.  I pray that I might not sit back and watch from afar, but that I would roll up my sleeves and get down in the dirt.  I pray that God will send me.  I pray that I will have the courage to go.

  1. My prayer for you is that you realize that while doing the humanitarian efforts of feeding, clothing, and serving, you would not forget what every person needs most - Jesus Christ. It is good to do those things because they open the door for us to speak truth and life to people. If we stop short of witnessing, we haven't truly helped them. What they need most is life eternal.
    I love your heart! I love your message! I love you! Momma
