Tonight my heart aches for the people being persecuted, murdered, slaughtered, raped, beheaded, run out of their homes, gunned down….
Tonight my heart aches for the lonely, for the broken, for the down and out, for the unfortunate, the homeless, the addicted…
Tonight my heart aches for the estranged, the rejected, the lost, the ones missing, the ones taken to young, the ones that are not with us, the orphans, the widowed, the children who have no one and nothing…
Tonight my heart aches for the lost that do not know the saving grace of Jesus, for those that do not know His love, His sacrifice, His generosity, His hope, peace and embrace…
Tonight my heart aches for those that have known Him and walked away… that have turned their back, that have ignored the truth… Jesus the way, the truth, the life, those that think they have plenty of time to find their way back to Him, His grace is never-ending but time is NOT!
Tonight my heart aches for my children, my family, my friends, that they would come to know His amazing love, the depths of His peace, the hope that only He can give us….
I hope your heart aches too.
I hope if it doesn’t ache that it will ache
I hope that the ache will cause a shift in your life
I hope that the ache will grow so that it will never leave any of us
and that it will be the driving force in our days
I hope that when He comes back again that we will have
been faithful to share with those we can of the gift He gave us.
He is my Hope
