So many lost people…

So many people hurt, so many people going through trials, so many confused people, so many misled people.  Its not hard to see them, just look around where ever you are, and its there.  Some may never speak a word to what they are going through, but the eyes are a window to the soul, and its there..darkness, hopelessness, rejection, shame, loneliness.

I know how this all effects me, from time to time, I just have to cry out for them…I feel their pain.  Thinking of how much more our LORD sees and hears and looks into thier darkened hearts, and what that must feel like to HIM, the Creator, knowing that HE created a way for them to come to HIM and have the darkness turned to light.  Either it has been rejected or….we the body are not doing our job in letting HIS light shine through us.  SAD.  Don’t believe for a second that all have heard the Good News and have made a choice, I don’t believe that.

Lord, the ones of us who are trying hard to work in the harvest fields are tired, we get weary from friendly fire(that by the way is not so friendly), we are becoming desperate for the lost to hear and know you, please send help…encourage us…minister to our wounds, and give us strength. Help us, we are so selfish, so self centered in all we do.  We need to be emptied fresh and refilled with more of you.  I know you know, and I know that nothing escapes your eyes, refresh us. Your grace is sufficient for us, help us to remember it always.   Everything is about you, and nothing is about us.

Note to “Self”

 

Self, you have become extremely annoying and overtly distracting.  Seems to me you were supposed to be dead, but when I least expect you..there you are with all your ugliness!  So what ever it takes, and however long the battle, you- Self can’t win.  You see…

I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  Galations 2:20

I am limiting my time this week on blogsville, I will still be around just not near as much…I am battling “self”, and not quite understanding how something that is dead, still has so much strength.  Do you battle with Self, is this something that will never end on earth?  If so, then what does Galations 2:20 mean…? 

Thought of this video and you can go there and see it Mercy Me- so long self
