Inside my heart...



Inside my heart I often ponder and dream.

While I care for my beautiful family and enjoy the blessings around me, deep inside my heart I know there is so much more to life... so much more.

My heart aches for the lonely, the hungry and needy. I often think of the abused, abandoned and the lost.

And I know one thing... I cannot just think about them and then go on with my own little life.

So, inside my heart I often cry. I dream of what I can do to help, I give what I can and I talk to my children about what they can do to help.

And I pray.

Sometimes I feel guilty to live in such a plentiful land with such freedom and grace, and yet even in this land of plenty there are so many also who are suffering, lonely and in need.

It is easy to become overwhelmed with it all... but it's amazing what a difference one helping hand can make.

Inside my heart I hope that I can make a difference.

"Three things will last forever — faith, hope, and love — and the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13)

  1. I can totally hear what you are saying. It's like that Brooke Fraser song which talks about how we know, we've seen and now we're responsible.

    Awesome post Kristy!

  3. My heart resonates with what you have said too, Kristy.

    I remember a prophectic word you got in Bible college about helping the vulnerable and lonely. I think the visiting preacher was called Alan but I can't remember his last name.

    God will show you His plan in this for you. :)

  5. What a beautiful post. Sometimes when I'm feeling sorry for myself I think of others who have so much less and live in so much pain, and then I realize just how blessed I am.

    What God sees in your heart is truly beautiful. Reminds me of Samuel's reply when questioned about his joice in chosing one of Jesse's sons to be King, man looks on the outside but God looks on the inner.Truly an awesome post

  9. I can totally hear your cries, I too cry in my heart for the homeless, helpless and less fortunate ones. God has placed something there for me to help these people I have yet to find out what he wants me to do exactly. I drive past the ones in christchurch and my eyes tear up alot. When we were overseas last year I felt so helpless because I didn't have money to give them all. Mothers and babies on streets begging for money.What I told the kids to do and myself is pray for every person who needed our help. This gave me peace because I knew God was the answer, God was who they needed.
