"Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

Olga

This post was written by another AP. You can read her journey HERE

Sweet Olga has gone to live with Jesus. She was a precious little girl who lived in the same orphanage as Matthew and Michael. She was transferred out of the baby house to an institution due to her age and lived only a few short weeks once there. Please, please pray for the kids left behind and especially those who are fixing to be transferred. Their lives depend on it. Dance with Jesus sweet Olga, dance with Jesus!



I wanted you all to read that post from that mother so you know that this happens..a lot in fact. It is heartbreaking. We all need to remember what God's Word tells us to do. We must care for the orphans, widows and fatherless. If not this happens! We can't sit by in our comfy life pretending that we dont see, pretending that we arent called because that is bull! We are all called. God didnt say some of us out here care for the widows, orphans and fatherless. You know this world reminds me of that song If we are the body by Casting Crowns.It makes me MAD!

But if we are the Body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His words teaching
And if we are the Body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way
There is a way

WHY ARENT WE? Prayer is great but why wont we move?! Why wont we do?! Faith without works is dead right?! C'mon! People are dying! We need to go to the hospitals and hold the babies, go to the store and buy backpacks and fill them and give them, go to the orphanages in the other countries and hold the babies, love the babies! Play! Talk to a widow! Feed the homeless. LOVE! LOVE! Why wont we move? Because were comfortable! God please dont make us uncomfortable. Ill go on a missions trip to the Bahamas but not to Africa, too many bugs and what I would see there would be uncomfortable to look at!

We need to Wake up! We are in the end of days and Jesus IS coming soon. When He comes and we say, well I started a ministry to help orphans, we never did anything but it was started and the name looks good. Or I started a ministry to help people but the building I wanted it in never came up for sale so we just couldnt do it anywhere else or how about. I really wanted to but didnt have the money?! Or time. Maybe after we are out of debt, yeah, or when the kids are older so we do not deprive them.

There are babies on this floor of the hospital we are on right now that have not had anyone come to visit this whole week, not even mom and dad. The nurses say no one ever comes. But forget about them because we have more important things to do we have to save for retirement and take the girls to ballet and the boys to soccer. Now is not the time to hold babies now is the time for my own kids and those parents should hold their own babies!

Im not sitting here writing this saying I am perfect, I am guilty of this myself. I want to be comfortable just like the rest of us. I want to hold my own babies and stay in my warm house and not go to some cold and distant dirty place to hold stinky babies that droll everywhere. Yuck. But maybe I should get over that so Jesus is proud of me. So that people see Jesus in me and not this world.



Be blessed

  1. Amen Friend! I am also guilty of this but I am striving to move farther and farther out of my comfort zone into the blessed unknown!
