Why is it that we feel convicted to do things? Why is it that when you see a homeless person on the street you hurt for them, and put yourself into their shoes? The way they must be cold and alone. Why is it when you hear of children going unfed for days, you feel hungry to feed them? And most importantly, why is that when you ask the Lord to "break your heart for what breaks His" He ACTUALLY DOES IT.
Okay, that last one might be redundant because you are asking to have your heart broken. I guess I mean as why do I feel so much when sometimes I don't want to feel at all? I have been struggling a lot with these feelings that I so do not want. But to be what I know the Lord wants of me I will deal with these unwanted feelings with the help a God who is Almighty and Sovereign.
The church that the Lord has blessed me with here in Saint Augustine has introduced me to this song. I find myself singing it often times.
"And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours, and You are mine"
I am Yours, and You are mine. Wow, truer words have never been written. In world that is so lost we are comforted constantly. In a world where it is so easy to get caught up in things, we are convicted to continue on the path the Lord has laid out for us. Why is it that this world is so appealing to our human nature. Why is it that we want to be accepted by society so badly?
I have a lot of questions today friends.
