A few weeks ago I prayed that the Lord would remove my sometimes cynical spirit, and that He would allow me to live out the “let my heart break for what breaks yours”. Since that time I have found out about 2 people in my life having terminal illnesses and 2 couples that we are friends with are divorcing. I am absolutely brokenhearted for all of these situations…..I think that God “broke” me so that I could be much more compassionate and prayerful in these situations than I would have been before. Don’t get me wrong, I am a prayer warrior, but sometimes I get so caught up in my own life and the lives of our family that I sometimes don’t give the time to prayer for friends and extended family that I do to the issues at hand in our own home. This past several weeks has been different.
