Katie continues her work and so I am her servant.......telling everyone I know about her journey and hoping that somehow, some way we can all make a difference. It has been said to me many times---"What about the needy here?" and I cringe when I here it...although I was one of those people before I was changed by everything I have read and experienced. I was one of "those" who didn't really "get it". God's people come in all shades all over the world. So who do we help? God leads us to that place. He doesn't want any of His people to go without and most of us have soo much to give--an abundance which keeps us from seeing Him and feeling His presence. I look at my "things" and know that I don't need any of it to truly be happy. These starving people wouldn't need all of my clothes, my decorations, the toys we indulge our children with. They need safety, and food, and shelter, and clean water. My heart breaks for them and I feel transparent with all of this "stuff". I want to feel Jesus the way that they do. And I pray that I will.
I will follow my heart.....I will listen to Him.....and I WILL make a difference.
