I recently found a quote that I quite like. It goes like this:
"Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice in the world when He could do something about it...but I'm afraid God might ask me the same question." Anonymous
"God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house, God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her chlild with a virus that will end both their lives. God is in the cires heard under the rubble of war, God is in the debris of wasted oopportunit
This haunts me. I lose sleep over this.
How much is enough? How much should we do? When is it enough? Is it ever enough?
I've got to do something. I wish God would show me what that is. But I have to do something about this terrible injustice. I am having a hard time living with this knowledge.
This has been on my heart for months now but I haven't known how to share it with you. I'm not sure what I've said is appropriate
"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for ophans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you." James 1:27
I don't want to allow the world to corrupt me. God, show us what we should do.
I wanted to share this because although many of you have followed our previous blog, many of you are newer friends. This goes back to February 8, 2009 when I finally had the courage to post it. It had been on my mind for quite some time. The cool thing you can see when you read it is that at the time, I was searching and asking God to show us what our next step was to be. He answered us since then. God does answer prayer. It's adoption for us once again, but we will continue to ask what our next step after this adoption will be. Retirement is not an option for us. Too many in need. Keep speaking, Lord. We're listening.
Hope me adding this old posting doesn't confuse in any way. Please let me know if it does so I can clarify.
