Allowing God to break your heart

December 4, 2008


I am reading a book, The Dangerous Act of Worship: Living God’s Call to Justice. The book speaks of us being asleep and needing to awaken to the needs around us and to God’s call and commands regarding how we should live in relation to each other, especially those in need.

Yesterday I was speaking with a Christian in my community who said they have a hard time working with those in need because they don’t want to be exposed to the pain and suffering. The conversation was such a stark contrast to what I am reading in The Dangerous Act of Worship. It made me really sad. I pray that individual will allow things into their life that God can use to break their heart and shape and grow them.

Are you living with an awakened heart? Do you allow yourself to feel, be exposed to those in need, see suffering, and feel pain? Would you be open to God calling you to work with someone that would move you out of your comfort zone? Would you be open to God calling to to do something, move somewhere, or sacrifice something you current don’t want to let go of? Are you allowing God to break open your heart? Maybe like the Grinch our hearts can grow three sizes today!
