As I sit at my desk, listening to Christmas music and the sounds of my littles giggling as they play I'm reminded of all that God has done for me.
Meanwhile there are thousands of people half way across the world who are living in fear, very real fear for their lives. They sleep in weather beaten tents, if they can find them, and they flee homes they love. Homes that once provided safety and comfort. Homes where they raised their babies. They leave all that behind because ISIS is terrorizing their region and they have no choice.
This Christmas as you make your shopping list I urge you to consider donating to @_light_a_candle_ They are doing very hard work and trying to provide shelter and love to these displaced refugees. If you choose to or cannot donate money I beg of you to pray for these people.
Pray the refugees find love, hope and light. That despite their circumstances they have abundant joy. Pray that the volunteers are safe and that their families have peace. Pray for this crisis to end. That ISIS fall once and for all. Pray for God's grace to touch each and every person in the region of Northern Iraq. "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. "

"Then the mountains of influence will be fruitful, and from your righteousness prosperity and peace flow to all the people "
I love when a devotional leads me to Psalms ... I always hear God when I read them. Such a timely word for me, my family and our nation. When the influencers are righteous, strong, courageous the outpouring of prosperity and peace cannot be contained. Just as a stream trickles down from the top of a mountain so do the values, ideas & morals from influencers. Each of us are in a sphere of influence so we must be careful to guide that sphere correctly. .
Guys it's no big secret that I'm a busy girl but guess what... I'm finding time every week to listen to this podcast. Why? Because it's awesome. Period. The end. Treat yourself to a 10 minute break and be inspired, encouraged and activated by this real life world changer!
