I had a hard time sleeping last night. Our First Wednesday service played over and over in my mind. It's an overwhelming reality to know that before the sun rises, hundreds will die for the cause of Christ.
The truth can be paralyzing sometimes, can't it.
If you are anything like me, the stories of martyrs can bring frustration..helplessness.
I feel worthless.
Here is what God has whispered to my heart today...
"Do I not require the same sacrifice from all who are Mine? Do I ask one man for everything and another for nothing? To love Me is to give Me everything. It is not in your moment of death that you give it all...it is in the moments of life that you choose to lay everything down. Offer yourself as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to Me."

A conversation with Anjali yesterday went like this...
Anjali: Why are you getting that sweatshirt?
Me: Because I don't want to be cold.
Anjali: I don't want to be cold either. God, would you please help me to find my sweatshirt?
Anjali then walked into her room, opened her closet, and said, "I found it!!! thank you, God!!"
About five minutes later...
Anjali: mom, will you zip up my sweatshirt?
Anjali: thanks, God.
Me: I'm not God, silly. I'm mommy.
Anjali: No, I was thanking God for helping you zip my sweatshirt up.
Anjali knows something I sometimes forget...All good things come from God....all of them.

Just something to think about.
