What's In Your Heart To Do?

What's in your heart to do?? This question pierces my mind....how can I even begin to answer all that God has put on my heart? I know it is a gift...it's a gift that he has called, that my heart is afflicted, that I wrestle with the injustice and poverty...it's God's grace to me.

Some days I find myself thinking about the future, the very near future...when we leave the field and move to the states for a little while. I have fears of moving back, fears that I will love it, that I will forget what God has put on my heart, forget what God has opened my eyes to see. Some days I find myself hoping I will forget, that I won't have to be afflicted any longer. Then He reminds me, it's His gift to me.

Some days I'm burdened by what God has put in my heart to do? I'm not capable, I don't have the right gifts, I don't always have the strength, I don't have the words to say...Today, I'm reminded again, this too is a gift. By his grace and his grace only and with his strength. He will do what He has put on my heart to do.

        2 Corinthians 8:11-15

So now finish doing it as well, so that your readiness in desiring it may be matched by your completing it out of what you have. For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have. For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened, but that as a matter of fairness your abundance at the present time should supply their need, so that their abundance may supply your need, that there may be fairness. As it is written, “Whoever gathered much had nothing left over, and whoever gathered little had no lack.”

I'm ready....

God has put on my heart

Isaiah 58: 10-11 - To pour myself out to the hungry and to satisfy the desire of the afflicted...He will make my bones strong.

Ephesians 1: 3-14 - The women of Haiti will know they are holy and blameless before Him...He is the redemption...They are forgiven....He has lavished upon them...They have an INHERITANCE.

Ephesians 3: 17-19 - The women of Haiti will be strengthened and powered through his Spirit...Christ will dwell in their hearts...They will completely grasp all HE has for them!!

1 Peter 2:9 - They will KNOW who they are!

To see the women of this nation FREE!!

To see their children have HOPE!! A hope of a future to look forward too!!

Find favor in my heart Lord..Hear my plea for your children!

What has God put on your heart to do??
