I sit and try to process what I’ve seen. But yet, still no words.
The ramblings running through my mind are stripped void of any coherent thought. While the people of Guatemala stole my heart (day 1 pics here), I’m left feeling bare naked. Vulnerable. Stunned.
The need is great.
The need is vast and thinking of the complexity of the issues it all seems quite bleak. I wonder how I can possibly make a difference in a land unembellished.
One thing is for certain.
Once you have seen, you have a responsibility. Your heart wants to respond and Jesus asks you to, as well.
In fact, if you know the right thing to do and don’t do it, that, for you, is evil. James 4:17 MSG
As I’m stripped bare of all I thought was important, my heart begins to beat with a response. A response I’ll share more about in the coming days. But for today, I’ll treasure the stripped, bare, and rawness I’m experiencing in my soul.
Have you seen a need lately?
How will you respond?
