I have problems, struggles and uncertainties in my life that are painful. Yet as I sit in my warm and comfortable study this morning gazing out at God’s beautiful creation, looking at pictures of those who mean the most to me, and listening to praise and worship music that pours God’s grace into my soul, my heart is drawn to those who are not so fortunate. Families in the Ukraine uncertain about whether they will live or die and what their future will be like. People I encounter every day who are trying to mask the deep depression that threatens to swallow them. Children in the Arkansas Delta in Arkansas who face a lifetime of struggle with odds stacked against them. Churches filled with so much polarization and in-fighting that their souls are withering away. And my heart breaks. And I call out to God on their behalf. And I pray, “Lord, Jesus, show me how I can reach the person you need me to touch with your love.”
