That has been my prayer. One of my favorite songs says, “….break my heart for what breaks Yours….show me how to love like You have loved me……everything I am for Your Kingdom’s cause….” I truly want to see the world as the Lord sees it and love others the way that He has and does love me. Since I have started praying for this, the Lord has put me in situations to see Him minister to others and show me how we can minister to others. Over the last two months I have gotten the privilege of people who are suffering under the trials of this world to share with me and I have seen how hard this life can be. We were in the middle of all of the tornadoes in Alabama that came through and we drove up on houses where a tornado had just ripped people’s houses and lives apart and they were just standing with their hands on their heads in shock. In trying to prevent a latino woman from having an abortion, I saw young women coming out of the abortion clinic crying because they had just had an abortion. It was a sight that I think I will never forget and it broke my heart.
Now the question is, what do I do…. how do I respond to Him breaking my heart for what breaks His? The first thought that comes to my mind is LOVE. God loved me when I was unlovable. He has given me hope in His love and His promises. I have faith in His character. He has granted me grace in my most difficult times to endure and even worship Him when the world thinks otherwise. Therefore, I am to extend His love to others. I am to share His hope and promises with others. I am to share and teach others about His character so that they too can run to Him in their time of need.
My challenge to you – Will you open your eyes to see as He sees and love as He loves? Will you allow Him to break your heart for what breaks His? Will you help others by sharing the ultimate gift of salvation through Christ and not keep it to yourself?
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 ” 16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”
Please listen to this song and be challenged to love people right where they are and love them with the love that you have been given!!
