My heart is full. There's always things happening around me and life doesn't stop. :)
http://lisas-pics.blogspot.com/2010/12/what-does-it-mean-to-wail.html The wail that God had given me was for the young girls trapped on the streets of our city being commercially and sexually exploited. Young girls that are trapped in a horrendous lifestyle that they did not choose of their own free will. My heart also cries out for the kids that are trapped on our streets, or are in homes that are extremely abusive, dominated by addictions. These kids have to grow up much faster than they should and are often the parent to the other kids around them. Every now and then, circumstances have happened around me where the cry just rises up and the wail comes out with full force. At this point I need to allow myself just to weep, to weep over the hurting, the lost, the broken and the helpless. I need to let my anger and hatred at the devil and the horrible evil that entangles so many who are kept trapped in lives of defeat and betrayal....be poured out at the feet of Jesus. So I wept on Friday.
to a bed, injects her with drugs for a week and by the end of the week has turned her into an addict who is willing to do anything for him in order to get the next fix....including prostituting her body over and over again to make money for him?? What is wrong with the middle aged and senior men who demand this type of entertainment? And very sad to say, what is wrong with the evangelical church men that are looking for this twisted type of entertainment as well. What is wrong with the pastor who has been married for many years and decides he married the wrong person and runs off with his church secretary who is young enough to be his daughter? What is wrong with a mother who chooses to take part in sexual activities with her teenage son's friends? What is wrong with the man who believes that just because he paid the money that he has the "rights" to do what he wants sexually to an 11 year old girl?? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?? So yes, I wept today because every single one of these situations are actually happening on our streets and in our churches. I wept today and poured it all out at the feet of my Lord.
Don't you see my friend? The walls are broken down. The spiritual walls are broken down and God needs courageous warriors in Him to stand up and fight against the evil and to start rebuilding the walls. Don't you see? Jesus is the only answer. When will the world realize that we need Jesus?? He is the only one who can save, He is the only one who can give us an eternal life out of a life of hell, He is the only one who can forgive the worst of sinners, and He is the only one who can set the captives free!!
"Let's go out...perhaps the Lord will help us, for nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win a battle whether he has many warriors or only a few!” Here in 1 Samuel 14, Jonathan is talking to his armor bearer when the two of them were outside the Philistine army's camp. It was just the two of them and Jonathan felt the Lord wanting him to stand up to them and fight....even if it was just the two of them. They killed 20 Philistine soldiers right then and the rest of the army was so afraid that they scattered. All Jonathan did was believe that the Lord could win the battle against his enemies and he took action. Does God not want the same from us? Does he not want us to stand up and fight the battle, only if there are a few courageous ones who will stand with us at first? If there are a few that would stand up to ruffle the feathers of a few, would the rest scatter in fear knowing that our battle will be victorious? You see, Nothing can hinder the Lord. He has already gone out before us. He is leading His warriors. Who will stand with Him? Who will go? Who has the courage to say "Send me Lord, I will go."
And as I continue in the journey of finding out what the Apostle Paul meant when he said "To Live is Christ......and to die is gain" - I know that God will show me and others where He is leading us and what He wants us to do is to completely, fully, wholeheartedly, unashamedly, and unfearfully.....live for Him....and to be obedient and to be willing to follow where He leads.
