Places I’ve never been

My heart has been hundreds of miles away for the past few days. I have been able to keep my mind focused during the day, but at night my dreams are filled with sights and sounds of a place that I’ve never been.

I am dreaming of Haiti. Of standing on the harbors and watching cargo ships sail in and out of the Caribbean.

I am dreaming of walking the streets, the broken bits of concrete and broken hearts all around me. An island of people who need Christ and His love. Who need shelter.

Babies, born to mothers who can’t take care of them, that need to be held. Children who need to be played with. Families that need food.

My heart is full of them today. My prayers are for them. God, how can I be of use to them? How can I serve and minister to them from so far away?
