I Am Heartbroken

I have not written in my blog for months. Sometimes, it seems like I just do not have anything to say and other people are out there saying things better than I can. But today, I am going to say what is on my heart. Mostly because other people cannot speak for how I feel.

I am heartbroken. Plain and simple.

I am heartbroken because there is so much hate dividing this nation.

I am heartbroken because there are people who believe others to be “less than” when God tells us we are all created in His image.

I am heartbroken because people are responding to a rallying cry for racism and hatred.

I am heartbroken because we have left many of our minorities to live in poverty and despair.

I am heartbroken because we have so many politicians who allow themselves to be corrupt and self-serving, instead of serving the people who elected them.

I am heartbroken because many see the church not as a solution to the problems but as part of the problem.

I am heartbroken because many churches have lost their passion for Jesus and are not stepping up and letting people know about Jesus, who shed his blood for ALL of us.

But most of all, I am heartbroken, because I have sat by silently on the sideline and watched without being a voice for Jesus.

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,  I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’  He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” —Matthew 25:40-46
