There is a popular song playing on our local radio station these days. The song talks about living like we're dying. It hit me this week, as followers of Jesus, we need to also be living like they're dying. Because they are. And this is one of the reasons it it so hard on me not to be in Swaziland right now.
Lord, give me patience. Keep my praying for them and living a life that allows me to minister to them from here. Keep me from being sucked back into a materialistic lifestyle that prevents me from giving to meet the needs of others.Help me learn what I need to learn in the here and the now. But help me never to forget that You died for me so I can live for them.
