Lord, break our hearts!

Have you ever prayed this prayer, “Lord, break our hearts for the things that break yours?”  Well, take a look at this video and allow God to answer your prayer.  This was originally posted by Christmas Change.  If this doesn’t move you, like really move you to do something, then…well…just watch it.

I’ve prayed that prayer many times in my life…it is dangerous!  Because when God truly breaks your heart for something…you’re ruined for the ordinary world.  That’s how I feel.  But I wouldn’t change it in a million years.   I just pray that He continues to break my heart.  I too can fall into depraved indifference.  I hate it.  I want my minutes that are allotted to me to make a difference for eternity in the lives of many.

So, my flight to Haiti was cancelled as was the mission team that we were supposed to host.  We will reschedule them for spring break.  But, I am very excited because I got my flight rescheduled for this Friday and returning on Thursday.  So, Lord willing, I will get down there before Christmas and have the wonderful opportunity to distribute all the gifts that have been purchased for hundreds of children.  I will also be able to give out gifts to all the orphaned kids that we are ministering to.  I am planning on having a little Christmas party for the kids in the orphanage.  I am so excited to be able to spend some time with these children.  To me, I would not want to be doing anything else in the world besides sharing the love of Christ with those kids that are often most forgotten about.  But I’m no different than you.  I just simply prayed that prayer and He answered.  No extraordinary people here…just ordinary people who serve an extraordinary God.
