An ache so strong it consumes me

I long desperately tonight. Every single thing in me cries out for the peoples of this world to know Your name.

Jesus, I'm crying for you. I'm crying for your people, Lord, please.

Why do you have me here? When the only thing I desire is you and the advancement of your kingdom throughout the people groups living in the unreached nations, in the slums, God, in the deserted corners of the abandoned warehouse? I want to see Your name exalted in the regions that have not been touched with Your truth. Why do you still have me in America, Lord?

I placed my heart at your feet. I'm waiting on you to tell me where. Please tell me where. 

I wake up crying for your people who are lost in darkness and in a world without hope. Pierce the dark, God. Pierce it with your light.

I want to be there to hold a candle, if nothing else.

Isaiah 49:6-  "It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth."

Isaiah 52:7- "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, 'Your God reigns.'"

Nahum 1:5-  "The mountains quake before him; the hills melt; the earth heaves before him, the world and all who dwell in it."

Habakkuk 2:14-  "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea."

Haggai 2:7- "And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of hosts."

Mark 13:10- "And the gospel must first be proclaimed to all nations"

John 10:16- "And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd"

How can I ignore the call? Lord, Here I Am. Send Me.

I love your heart!

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is wait.
