Sometimes, I would just like to pack my bag and start walking.
For what, exactly? I’m not sure. I know there is more to life than behind these four walls I know so well. There are people suffering. I want to connect with them. I want to understand them. I want them to know they are loved and being watched over. I want them to know that their suffering is more important than my comforts.
Our Earth is rotting, wars are brewing, corruption is rising. The poor is still begging for food, for warmth, for drink, for shelter. My belly is full and my bills are paid–but my heart still longs for more. I can relax in knowing that the true nourishment comes from Him.
Whether we know it or not, we look for Him every day. We don’t have to be a part of a church or community to know him necessarily, either. He is with us, always. It just takes a knock on his door and a willingness to understand. For only He knows the blueprints. We must take care of each other and stand up for His world.
“I, the Lord, command you to do what is just and right. Protect the person who is being cheated from the one who is cheating him. Do not ill-treat or oppress foreigners, orphans, or widows; and do not kill innocent people in this holy place.” ~Jeremiah 22:3)
