"We Are That Family" is a blog I read EVERY day. Something about the writing strikes a chord in my soul EVERY single day. The parenting, the ministry, the #yesinmymess mentality. I love it.
Today, though, was the most remarkable blog post. Please please please take the time to read it.
The Difference Between Their Daughters and Mine
I don't have daughters, but this situation in Nigeria has truly brought to light for me a resounding problem.I HAVE been posting #BringBackOurGirls everywhere and anywhere I could. But my heart knew there was more...
Kidnapped, abused and misused girls in third world countries is NOT a current event. It is real, it is every day, and it is not going to go stop until the whole world stands up for them.
Yes, I wrote a letter to my Senator, because I didn't know what else to do. But today, We Are That Family, reminded me that I need to pray. I don't know how I missed that, but it is exactly what I need to do.
Will you pray with me?
“God, we humbly seek your face and lift up the girls and women in
our world who suffer in bondage and fear violence. We ask that you would
set these captives free. We pray they would feel your strong arm of
love in the midst of their suffering. Please give me the courage to
stand against oppression. Bring back our girls. Amen.” (Reposted from We Are That Family.)
