God has been knocking on my heart for a long time.
For YEARS, He has been urging me with these words:
"Find the children and bring them insulin."
I'm swear I'm not crazy.
At one point, a few years ago, Jay and I were even considering a mission trip.
We were ready to give up everything, pack the girls, and go find them.
It was during that time, that I ran across the Life For A Child organization.
I was drawn to this organization in a way that is hard to describe.
I devoured the website. I kept coming back time and again.
Passionately looking for more information.
I WAS ON A MISSION!
it seemed so overwhelming.
I felt helpless.
I felt like anything I could give wouldn't be nearly enough to put the slightest dent in the situation.
I began shoving all that information to the back of my mind.
The extreme conditions.
Children dying because they can't access insulin.
My heart broke.
I didn't know what to do with all the emotion.
I manged to ignore the tugging in my heart for awhile.
Until a few months ago.
I began seeing flashes of Sugar on the morning of her diagnosis.
I saw images of mothers holding their
kneeling on a dirt floor...crying out for mercy to spare their child.
I imagined the slow misery of a child gasping for air.
And no one responding to a mother's wailing grief.
These images (and many more like them) haunt me.
When I couldn't stand it any longer,
I launched a campaign to support Life For A Child.
In the days since, I have experienced some incredible things.
More proof that God is in control.
Some of it I might share.
Today's Joy: LOVE.
