Thy kingdom come............

As a mother of 3 small children I wonder what it would be like to loose one of them.  But I can't dwell there for long.because the despair would be too much.  Think about that.  We can't even imagine it.  That says something.  It is a feeling no mother ever wants to feel.  Yet so many have.  My heart aches so much lately for the mothers who have tragically lost their children.  I feel so inadequate to help.  I have 3 small children of my own and there are many things that I simply cannot be a part of, but that doesn't mean that I can't do "anything".  I can uplift, exhort, encourage and love.   I can remove myself from power to make a space for others who could use the platform better.  My goal is too help in such a way that my position disappears and my privilege vanishes.  While I may not be able to be on the front lines the way I interact, speak, love and serve may be able to empower those who hold the line.  Jesus come.  I long for your justice.  I long for you to linger in my words, to speak life and not death.  To lift up those who we have been trampled for so long.  Come and step on my back, take my cloak, and don't mention my name.  Know that you are loved and cherished.  An apology is not enough, the thought does not count!  Actions speak louder then words and humility cannot be fabricated.  We shall know the truth and it will set us free.  Open our eyes, open our hearts and free us from the love of power and control.  They kingdom come.  Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
