Preparing my heart

Tomorrow, my best friend and I will travel down to the South OKC/Moore area to drop of supplies and to volunteer with the relief efforts.

This past week has been hard for my heart. It’s been hard watching the place that I called home for two years be turned in to piles of rubble and lives forever changed.
Knowing friends that have lost everything they have, hurts on such a deep level.

I’ve been trying to prepare myself for the images that I know I will encounter tomorrow.
It’s one thing to see it on tv or in pictures. Completely different to see it in person.

I’ve searched all week for the right words to say to people and the right way to handle everything.

 

God, I pray that you give me a servant’s heart. I pray that you allow me to be humbled and to not take the things that I have for granted. I pray that you give me the right words of comfort to those that have lost so much. I pray that you continue to shower them with your comfort for the days ahead. And that we as a state, and a nation, don’t soon forget what happened on May 20.

 

Much love to you all.
