I am feeling sad tonight. The weekend has brought much bad news. A friend lost her father. Another has been diagnosed with brain cancer. Another fights overwhelming odds, and keeps on fighting. So many people are hurting. So many people feel alone, or scared, or heartbroken. Or all three at once. How to help? How to fill up empty hearts? How to comfort wounded souls? How to find words to offer that might bring a balm of peace? How can I be His hands and feet in a hurting world?
I've been praying, asking these questions as I go about my day. This is the answer I felt in my heart.
Start with what you have. Be willing. Be openhearted and generous. Give your time. And your money. Give your love. Start with what you have. Start here.
I don't know yet what "start here" means. I'm not sure. And so I'll click publish. And wait. And keep praying.
