Sometimes i just completely lose my hope in people. I guard myself to keep from experiencing pain and to be honest – I have a hard time in the “grace” area. Sometimes people just flat out get on my nerves! I struggle in this area big time. (i’m just being honest with you.)
However, nothing breaks me and humbles me more than when I see the body of Christ work together in love for complete STRANGERS.
We are all pretty messed up. I’m the first to raise my hand on that one. But people’s hearts, no matter how shattered they are, can be sooooooo beautiful.
I am drenched in tears right now. A little while ago I posted a status on FB about a young woman who lost her husband this week. She desperately needs help with paying some funeral expenses. I have ALREADY received a few donations for her family and I believe God is totally going to pull the heart strings of His people to bless this girl.
People who come together can truly make a change, a difference, and a grieving widow’s heaviest load a little lighter…. that’s the heart in community. That’s God in the midst of this crazy world showing up and taking care of business.
I cry because it softens the hardness that tries to place itself on me. I smile because it punches the devil in the face. I see that people are still good. I see that people are still connected. I see HOPE. I see the love of Christ shining through a DARK moment.
My God is not dead … He’s alive and He’s clearly on the move.
