Could you please speak up?

A couple of posts ago I asked God to speak because I, His daughter, was listening.

Well, I am still listening…and waiting…and wondering…

I feel caught between two places and wondering where He wants me to be. There is something more He has for our family out there and I am just yearning to know what it is and when it is!! I have lots of ideas for Him to consider! :)

The last two years have opened our eyes in so many areas. I feel like I am walking around EYES WIDE OPEN. It many instances, it has been hard, to know how many children are suffering…A statistic I learned the other day is that there are at least 2 million children right now trapped into forced prostitution. 20% of all human trafficking worldwide are children! How does your mind even begin to wrap around that? Greg and I have begun to volunteer and work with The International Justice Mission and train to be Justice Advocates. The statistics are mind blowing and unbelievable.

Add in our awakening in the plight of the orphan, dealing with a father suffering from cancer, and other issues of life, we are experiencing a complete shift in thinking about life and what is or isn’t of the utmost importance. How can all of that not change you?

I have started to take classes at our local college. In prayer that once I am done training my children at home, that I will be ready to jump in with both feet into the troubles mentioned above.

Below is a video of one of my favorite singers, Sara Groves. This describes in detail where I am at.

  1. Yes, our eyes have recently been opened to human slavery as well! Our hearts feel very called for the orphan as well, and we know that our future will always hold these things- because they have been revealed for us to take action.......now for God to show us what action!

  2. I'm with you Charisa. Our pastor said this wekeend, 'If you're trying to figure out what do in your life, and you decide to major in protecting widows and orphans, you will never go wrong.'

    Beginning 2010, I won't have any kids to homeschool. Am praying about the next leg of my personal journey.
