My heart hurts God. I know that yours must, too. I ask that You would protect my brothers and sisters that are being persecuted around the globe, Iraq specifically. There is so much brutality and devastation. Forgive me for taking my freedoms for granted, forgive me for being so comfortable that I let even a moment slip up while letting Your Grace go unacknowledged--yet it is the very thing that they are being slaughtered for: acknowledging--professing--Your grace and Your Truth. Help me to live with reckless abandon for Your Gospel. God, end this mess. Bring Justice. Come soon.
