Love 146

Isaiah 59

13...rebellion and treachery against the LORD,


turning our backs on our God,

fomenting oppression and revolt,

uttering lies our hearts have conceived.



14 So justice is driven back,

and righteousness stands at a distance;

truth has stumbled in the streets,

honesty cannot enter.



15 Truth is nowhere to be found,

and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

The LORD looked and was displeased


that there was no justice.

16 He saw that there was no one,


he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;



Jesus, what is my response to this to be?  What is all of our response to be?

Right now, I am just stunned. Seven years old...

Powerful. I'm speechless other than that...

I'm stunned and speechless as well. I just saw this yesterday and have been sick to my stomach. I don't want to just send a monthly contribution because that's not enough. I've been on my knees about how God wants me to respond. Love146.org said the least I could do is pray and spread the word, so I'm doing that for now.

As my friends, let's covenant that we will seek God in what we are to do with this knowledge.

I've known for the last several years that this was a problem. The saddest thing is that there are people--Christian people-- who don't believe this is really happening. It's so ugly and painful to face that they turn and embrace denial instead. Those of us who have been shocked out of denial have to do something... What something? I don't know, but something.

Ugh!

You're right Marni. Seek God and listen to what he would have us do.

It's not just the horrors these babies endure. In and of itself, that's enough. It's the verse I read in Isaiah. God is appalled that we (His people) aren't intervening. The conviction is heavy for me.

that's awful. I don't really know what to think right now, other than that this is awful. I think I'm having difficulty processing it, because it's just that horrible...

God asks, "Who will go ..." many times ...

Unfortunately it's not just foreign countries but here as well. Absolutely sickening.

I want to close my eyes, stick my fingers in my ears and scream. I don't want to believe this exists, but know it most certainly does. Pray. Give. Reach out. I must help.

WV: "chills" No kidding.
