Called to care

Nothing makes me love a leader more than when they are honest about their struggle.

This past weekend I felt and believe that God was asking me (more like pleading with me) to CARE. I've heard Him ask me this before but this time it was different. It broke my heart. I listened.

He wants me to stop focusing on myself and where I'm at now and start caring for His kids (my siblings) the way He does. He has brought me out of a lot of darkness and I have come a long way from where I was when He found me and He's saying "Surina, please stop thinking about yourself and please think of My kids. Point them home."

I've been holding onto this rebellious spirit of "I don't care if people come to know Jesus or not because it's none of my business."
Well, He wants me to make it my business because others made it their business to come for me.

He put it on my heart throughout my whole retreat to stop long enough for Him to show me that His heart is that of a Father who is waiting to be seen by His kids and that I need to BE INTENTIONAL about the call He has placed on my life.
For me to BE INTENTIONAL about the story He has entrusted for me to share. His story.
He keeps reminding me that my testimony is His story NOT mine.

He wants so badly to reach His kids and He wants them to come home to Him. He is lost in the pursuit of them. He is their Father and He loves them.

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." ~Philippians 2: 3-4
