The Riches of His Love

October 11th, 2010


Yesterday at church we were singing the worship song “Forever Reign” and tears came to my eyes when we sang the lyrics ” … the riches of your love will always be enough”.   It reminded me of the quote “The opposite of poverty is not wealth,  the opposite of poverty is enough”.   It reminded me of  the fact that my idea of what a home with “enough” looks like has changed both in the spiritual and the physical.

I saw the riches of God’s Love on display in the faces of so many children in Ethiopia.   I saw the light of hope.  I saw how God is providing for basic needs for these children through their sponsors and the volunteers at the churches.   They are learning about Gods love for them through scripture and through the ways they are being provided for by Christians who’ve never even met them.   They are learning about God’s love as they are fed, clothed, educated and cared for.

Oh God shower the riches of your love on these kids!  I am anxious to see how God will use our audience once again to bring His “enough”  into the lives of many children next week during our 26 Hours of Compassion.  Please join me in praying for this.

    I love that song! I enjoyed hearing your reports from Ethiopia, and now hearing the DJ’s talk about their sponsored children. I decided that I wanted to sponsor a child, for me it has always been a financial reason for not sponsoring or donating, but God has called me to do it now. I have every thing that I need and more, I know that I can go without a few Starbucks coffees or do thrift shopping in order to help 1 child who lives in poverty. I always have enough! Thank you!

    Yay Mary!!!

    Thanks so much for your comment. It’s so exciting to hear that you’ve decided to sponsor a child!!! You can go through the link at our website or call us next week when we are doing our 26 Hours of Compassion and we’ll get you all set up with a beautiful child. It is SOOOO rewarding to give and receive letters and the financial part does have a way of working out. (It can be a challenge for me, too).

    Bless you and thanks for your encouragement and for listening in during my journey!!!
