through new lenses

a few conversations in bali left me feeling burdened n pretty heavy hearted. reminded about what a privilege it is to be able to travel, to be able to spend $8 on a burrito bowl without thinking twice, to pay for the services of others and even tip them..?

today i caught up with KJ who asked if while doing this work, i wonder/ ask where God is and why He let some things happen to others. i said i didn’t, but i think i lied.

what a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer

have we trials and temptations?
is there trouble anywhere? 
we should never be discouraged – take it to the Lord in prayer

can we find a friend so faithful?
who will all our sorrows share
Jesus knows our every weakness – so take it to the Lord in prayer

may my heart grow to be a little more like Yours each day.
may it be burdened for the people You love, may it drive me to action and service, and i pray You sustain me – only with Your grace and love.
