The world often disappoints.
The world can make me question myself.
The world is capable of walking away when I desperately need someone to walk toward me.
The world gets overwhelmed and distracted.
The world has messed up priorities.
The world grows weary.
But, my God never disappoints. His love never fades and his grace is sufficient.
My God is always pursuing me, always pressing in to my soul.
He is not overwhelmed by anything. He is never distracted and his priority is always love.
My God does not grow weary.
But, here’s the thing. My God calls me to be flesh to his Love here in this broken world. He wants me to be part of his provision. He promises to equip, strengthen and sustain me to do this work.
On my own, I am the world that so often causes pain to those I love.
So, I drop to my knees and plead with heaven.
Make me an instrument of your love and grace.
Let me not be hardened by the pain of this world.
Make me a wife, a mother, a friend, a human being that reflects not the world, but you.
Please, please let them see you in me.
