My Heart is Your Heart

Only after fully, truly
Giving myself
Over to God and surrendering my
Heart to the
Baptism of His Spirit was a raw, new
World of emotion
Revealed in all its splendor-filled
Beauty and pain.
My words flounder and fail to
The absolute fulfillment, yet heart-wrenching
Of this joining of my heart with
God’s heart
for the Bengali people. A world where a
Seated at a street corner causes my chest to
Full and let loose a flood of tears and prayers
for this desperate
Piece of humanity. My prayers never ceasing,
Never easing for a corrupt country tearing
The heart-strings of its Creator.

  1. This . . . is beautiful.

    And even more so, that they must live that way WITHOUT a Savior.

    Thank you for going in His name.
