here about the city, but I have decided to incorporate my love in my regular blog.
Detroit is more than just a cool T-shirt or a cool nickname 'the D' or some really great places to eat and visit to me (though it is those things)
How do I explain the feeling that if Jesus still walked this earth, that I am walking in the places He would walk? Because He came to save the lost. How do I explain my love for people I don't know? How do I explain the way my heart breaks when there is a need? That I see the sadness in their eyes. That when I see graffiti that says 'home is where the hate is' that I want to send more love than is humanly possible for me.
How do I explain a hope and a love that can only be Jesus? If you ask me to explain how I know there is a Jesus? I can only tell you what He has done for me. I just know.
I want the lost to know that they can be found. That home is not where the hate is, it's where the Love is. I want to teach each child that Jesus is not just a guy hanging from a cross or something that they should be afraid of, there is no fear in perfect love.
I went for a walk today, my first in a long time. I thought I'd hear what God had to say, but I didn't. Because I didn't stop talking, there is a season for everything, and the season today was to express my love to Him. I am thankful for a God who listens. And who speaks. I am not sure where He is guiding my steps, I've said my piece (though I am sure there is more to come) and now I will listen. And be obedient.
“No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NLT
This song often resonates in my heart. We must go.
