Haiti

wonderful people

beautiful language

great need

 My heart is broken for their suffering, I asked God how do I help? What can I say?  All week I saw things that are overwhelming for us American’s to imagine.  I have listened to many who have visited and my heart was broken from just hearing.  Everything they said is true and more.  My heart has been convicted by my selfish thinking.   Here I sit back at my computer and looking back. I have determined in my heart not to go back to the way I was before I went to Haiti.  Can it be possible? I don’t know, I have asked God to hold me accountable to the change.  You may wonder what kind of change I am talking about? Well, it’s a  deeper compassion for humanity, a thankfulness for all the blessings I have and understanding the great responsibility we have for being so blessed.  My heart was broken so greatly, I wept with out control at times.  It was the last evening that I realized how broken my heart had become. I was reading Luke 20.  Jesus (our capstone, my rock) said in vs.18 ” Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.”  As we all fall in “great need” on Jesus, we will be broken. It is such a good thing for us!  Jesus walked first hand in the “humanity of great need”, He knew how desperate we all would be to be broken, so we didn’t have to be crushed!   Jesus is the answer for all humanity it doesn’t matter what people it is. Jesus can be their capstone to hold them together!! In the midst of a country of rubble, many people are being broken. Praise our Savior for His great love for us all!!!!!!!
