Sharing Burdens

The devastation we've seen here in Nicaragua from the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Nate is heartbreaking. So many have lost everything they have. I feel small and insignificant and extremely humbled by it all. I see these mamas and their babies and the hopelessness in their eyes and my heart aches for them.

But our God is not small or insignificant and he is working in and through so many people with hearts that are willing to get their hands dirty and do something. To bring his hope to the hopeless and his light into dark places. And it's beautiful.

This is what I want for our lives: not to pity, but to suffer with. To walk alongside. To build our home in community with these people. To share their burdens.
