To Burst Open Again

Cold-hearted child
Music gone wild,
afraid of the unknown

She cries and cries
lifts up her eyes
for children who do not show

Like a dried-up river,
she used to burst open,
but now she has withered away.

Jesus, it is my prayer
that the water wells up once again
I need You, not you

Return me to my love at first
Let me experience a second, a third burst
For You, my King, my everything
Let my love for them
burst open again

The Chibok Schoolgirls Kidnapping: 7 Years Later

Hey friends,
I feel so bad. I forgot that yesterday, April 14th, 2021, was the 7th anniversary of the Chibok schoolgirls being kidnapped. What I would like to do here today is reflect on this tragedy, my journey with it, and what Jesus has shown me.

A Letter to You

Dear Friends and Followers,

Tonight at church, the Lord convicted me. We were reading Revelations 2:

“I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”
(Revelations 2:2-5, NIV)

Long story short, my heart has grown cold toward following the Lord with all of myself. Much of this has been seen in how I write this blog; I do it dutifully more than not, without the original love I had for the Chibok girls. It’s gone away.

But I know that there is hope. I want to renew my love for these women and prayers for their freedom and healing. I want to break out of religious duty and write this blog with passion. Please pray for me as I turn away from my coldness and toward loving these people with all my heart.

Thank you.

In Christ,

Prayer for #Alabama

At least 6 people have been killed in the storms they have been having in Alabama. While this has been a horrendous tragedy, Jesus is still on the throne. Please pray with me for those who have lost their homes, livelihoods, and loved ones.

“Dear Jesus,
Thank You for being a God who cares for us and who is also Sovereign. We pray now that You would protect those who have lost everything in these storms, and that those who are injured would be made well. Comfort those who have lost a loved one (Psalm 34:18). Please bless these communities that are going through so much.
In Your Name we pray, Amen.”

If you feel so led, please donate for those who have lost everything through The Red Cross.

Praying for Boulder

Hey friends,

As a Coloradoan, my heart is heavy today to learn of the ten people mercilessly shot in Boulder, Colorado yesterday (March 22nd, 2021). I don’t want to give any glory to the shooter; I will not even mention his name. But I wanted to list the ten people killed yesterday, so that we may pray over their loved ones as they grieve.

#StopAsianHate: Post by BeautyBeyondBones

In light of the heartbreaking mass shooting against asians in Georgia today, I wanted to share my friend Caralyn’s post about asian hate. It breaks my heart to see such a thing happen… may Jesus comfort those who have lost a loved one, and may He bring the perpetrator to Himself and to justice.

Please keep these people in your prayers.
