Let You Heart be Broken.

Sometimes I see something that touches my heart. Like this photo. (There are many more. Take a look at my 'Touch my Heart' board on Pinterest. )

It makes me think,  How can I help? What can I do to help them? I have so much in comparison. I live with my family in a nice home, I have plenty of clothes to wear, always something to eat and drink, and always shelter, warmth, and love. I am blessed. Now...how can I share what I have? I don't know. I really don't. But I found this song yesterday that really summed up all my thoughts. 

'Let Your Heart be Broken.'

Let your heart be broken for a world in need:
Feed the mouths that hunger, soothe the wounds that bleed,
Give the cup of water, and the loaf of bread-
Be the hands of Jesus, serving in His stead.

Here on earth applying principles of love,
Visible expression - God still rules above -
Living illustration of the Living Word
To the minds of all who're never heard.

Blest to be a blessing, privileged to care,
Challenged by the need - apparent every where.
Where mankind is wanting, fill the vacant place.
Be the means through which the Lord reveals His grace.

Add to your believing deeds that prove it true,
Knowing Christ as saviour, make Him master too.
Follow in His footsteps, go where He has trod:
In the world's great trouble risk yourself for God.

Let your heart be tender and your vision clear:
See mankind as God sees, serve him far and near.
Let your heart be broken by a brother's pain;
Share your rich resources, give and give again.

The tune of this song really adds to it as well. But I can't find it on YouTube, so you'll just have to use your imagination. Think slow, minor, passionate. After reading and singing and pondering this these words, I added to them:

'Lord, this song has touched my weak and wand'ring heart,
I am willing, waiting, help me do my part.
Teach me of Your ways, and give me of Your love,
May I spend my life preparing for above.'

When you comment:

1. My day will be brighter, my face smiling, and my heart blessed.

2. I’m likely to immediately go and explore your blog (if you have one) to find out more of your amazingness, and return the blessing.

3. I will then attempt to craft a response to you that will somehow fail to convey how much I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. I’m grateful for every word of encouragement you give, and don’t be afraid to share some constructive criticism also; there’s always more to learn. In short: thank-you! :)
