Humbled. Today was a day that leaves me feeling humbled. First thing this morning our team took off on the subway to go pray at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. As we stood in Battery Park waiting for our tickets, I was struck with the significance of my smallness and God’s love for me. #humbled
Standing with these buildings towering in front of me, I remarked to one of the gals standing near how God was just giving me #perspective (my one word this year!) on just how truly small I really am.
It was surreal, like something out of a movie. Standing there looking at this 3D display of enormous buildings. Thinking about how many people live and work there right now, but also thinking about how many people over the years have lived right there. And how with this whole big world engulfing me, God had his eye on me. Just me. And his thoughts for me outnumber the grains of sand on a beach. How is that possible? It’s humbling. To think that the creator of the Universe is that big, and yet that loving. He can think about each of us that much, and love each of us…. We’ll humbled doesn’t even sum it up. And yet, I’m humbled to be a child of the King! And it was out of this posture of humility that I prayed today. Know that if I humbled myself and prayed, then God would do His might work, and boy did he!
What a privelage I am afforded to be able to worship and pray. As we stepped off the ferry and took in the statue of liberty and the Manhattan skyline, I was struck immediately by her eyes. It was if the Lord was saying, I want to show you what I see. More to come on that in a later post, but for now, wanted you to look at things from a “different” angle. Pray tonight that the Lord would show you what he sees. Specifically as it pertains to Human Trafficking. I’d love for you to share with me what he shows you!
Be Blessed friends.
