"Worth Watching....."

I'll just watch this while I am organizing my home office....or at least that's what I thought. But then I was watching, and listening, and the tears wouldn't slow. I am so thankful for the blogger(Ann Voskamp) who recommended watching, with the words "worth watching". They seemed harmless enough. But this "worth watching" video, has reached in and grabbed my heart and squeezed it tight.

Just yesterday I listened to a friend tell me that Africa just wasn't her thing...she doesn't feel bad for the people there. I was stunned. What I think she meant is she does not feel compelled to have compassion on a people that she does not see, that it is not her job.

I didn't know it at the time, but I do now, EVERY Africa is my thing. If I am to call myself a Christ-follower, then it has to be...because Africa is Jesus' thing. When we are given the "great commission" in Acts 1:8 "and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." and "Go ye into all the world" Mark 16:15; Not only Africa, but wherever there is suffering, hunger, disease, and people, children dying, some never hearing the Gospel...that compels to want to reach them, because after all that Jesus has done for me how can I want to do any less. I don't know what and I don't know how, but I know...YES! Whatever it is you want me to do Lord, YES.
