I have a stack of bills. A few papers that mention collection notices.
I want to scream and cry and pout. I was flipping through as many websites on different financial options and banging my head against the table for all the December photo shoots I turned down so I could spend more time with the family- because right now, that extra money is LOOKING DANG GOOD.
But as I went going through one of the websites tabbed at the top of my screen- I came across this photo. And my heart wept.
It doesn't sit well, does it? I'm filled with the urge to rummage through the cabinets, get all the food and formula we may have, grab blankets and all the extra money we have and swoop these two up. Hold them and NEVER LET THEM GO.
But this is an image on a screen that I can't penetrate. Why? Because I am comfortably sitting in my computer chair, looking at my oversized computer monitor and not out there loving the least of these.
Right now. At this very moment. I need to be still. I need to be thankful. I need to shut up. I need to prioritize. I need to let go. I need to rethink a lot of things. I need to be patient.
Right now. At this very moment. I NEED JESUS.
Right now. At this very moment. Millions of others do too.
