Anyone else ever feel like that?
Images that should shock me, reduce me to tears, force me into action leave me cold and dry as I flick the channel.
We are so very far removed from some of the things going on in our world.
I have been praying tonight for forgiveness for my hard-heartedness... so many suffering, while I sit in plenty.
And I am comforted by the memory that God draws near to the weak, the brokenhearted, but also challenged that he calls me to be light... to stand as a witness to Jesus in a world that is lost and broken.
So join me in praying for Syria, for the Ukraine, for the many places around the world where people, made in God's image, are suffering.
There is so little I feel I can do, and yet do something, we must.
Please watch this video... it brings the story of what has been happening in Syria a little closer to home.
If this was happening in our city, would we be so cold?
