God Broke My Heart

Some might say that I serve in Summit Kidz because I am just a big kid at heart. Or some might say that it is an outlet for creativity. Or it might be said that I serve so that I can teach.

Maybe that is how it all began, but one moment in time changed all that. One moment on a Sunday morning when a little girl let me tie a salvation bracelet on her wrist as she sang "Arise My Love." In that one moment God broke my heart for children.

My heart is broken...

-For the child who has never heard who Jesus is and how much He loves them.

-For the child who has never been to church or even know what that is.

-For the child who will go thru so many struggles alone wondering who even

-For the child who is bombarded by images on tv (and some even in their own
lives) of hatred and violence and think that it is normal.

-For the child that will go to bed tonight hungry.

-For the child who longs for an unconditional love from anyone.

They are screaming "SEE ME! HEAR ME! LOVE ME!"

Who will tell them that God does? Who will show them His love is real?

We should be doing everything possible to reach out to children today for Christ. Tell them about the Son of God who loved them so much that He died for them! Tell them that forgiveness is possible thru Jesus and He will always be there for them! Tell them that they have a place in His house!

It is time to boldly proclaim God's love to our children today!

I will stand for these children and tell them every week how much Jesus loves them. I will kneel for these children and pray that they open their hearts and accept Jesus as their Savior. For the children that are there, for the ones to come, and the ones that may never come.

They are why I do what I do. My heart is broken and I will never see a child the same again. Thank God.

  1. This is an awesome post and an awesome testimony. Spurgeon wrote:

    "Unless you have a very clear sense of the utter ruin and spiritual death of children, you will be incapable of being made a blessing to them. Go to them, I pray you, not as to sleepers whom you can by your own power awaken from their slumber, but as to spiritual corpses who can only be quickened by a power divine... May you never be content with aiming at secondary benefits, or even with realising them; may you strive for the grandest of all ends, the salvation of immortal souls. Your business is not merely to teach children to read the Bible, not barely to inculcate the duties of morality, nor even to instruct them in the mere letter of the gospel, but your high calling is to be the means, in the hands of God, of bringing life from heaven to dead souls."

    In order to serve God's purpose in reaching children, we must understand and mourn their present state.

    Thanks again for this great reminder!
