This has been in my heart for a few weeks. This call is for many of you reading my blog today. This is a personal but also communal call. One we share, yet one that some of you will champion.
My daughter, you have heard my heart. You know how closely I watch over my creation; you see how carefully I care for those the world ignores, dismisses and abuses: the innocents. Nothing gets my holy ire up and my parent’s heart ablaze like seeing the young tossed aside as if they had no value. It is a warped world indeed, when the value and potential of a child is treated as something of no consequence.
I meant what I said, better to have a stone tied around your neck and be cast into the sea than to harm one of my beloved innocents.
But you see, and you hear, and you are moved with compassion, my child. You sense my heart and carry the cause of defending these precious children in your heart as well. This is an honorable pursuit. One that moves all of heaven and sends armies of angels to your side to assist you in caring for these abandoned, abused and discarded children.
Your mother’s heart, that has been broken and bruised, as all mothers’ hearts have been, is tender as a result. This tenderness, while hard to bear, is the very essence of compassion. It is the soft spot that allows you to care for my children, those the world continues to ignore, those my Church continues to ignore.
This is a powerful moment in time. Political forces, the enemy’s strategies, human fatigue and preoccupation have created a perfect storm of apathy, distraction and denial. This is the perfect moment for my Spirit to move, to draw with compassion the hearts of my people to the cries of my children. And you are the voice to carry this cause forward. You see strategic paths, creative methods and simple ways to defend those who cannot defend themselves. And I am with you! Trust me, this cause is not one you carry alone. All of heaven stands with you as you seek out and bring justice for these children.
I am raising up “Mama Bears” in the spirit who will defend each child as if they were their very own cubs! You carry this heart, Child. This is the desire that leads you to bear children, care for your family, love your legacy. This is the seed of compassion and justice that will bring forth tremendous fruit in the earth, and in my Church.
Do not believe the lie that you alone can have no effect! You are NOT ALONE. You go forth in the power of the Holy Spirit, in complete union with Jesus and backed by all of heaven itself. Believe me when I say, not one sparrow falls that heaven does not notice. We notice, and so do you.
That is why you are called to be a voice for the voiceless, the outcast and lost. A Mama Bear, a Mother Theresa, for abandoned, homeless and orphaned children. You carry a fierce Mama Bear-heart on behalf of children. You see and feel my father’s heart for each one, and it is time to bring them into the fold of our care and compassion.
You will rise up and inspire my Church through the local church and community to take responsibility for orphans and abandoned children through your powerful, quiet spirit. Your mother’s heart, tender, loving, even grieving at times, is actually the birthplace for a new season of power and purpose that will rescue MANY lost children.
And if you tenderly care for this little one on my behalf, you are tenderly caring for me. But if anyone abuses one of these little ones who believes in me, it would be better for him to have a heavy boulder tied around his neck and be hurled into the deepest sea than to face the punishment he deserves!Matthew 18:5-6
True spirituality that is pure in the eyes of our Father God is to make a difference in the lives of the orphans, and widows in their troubles, and to refuse to be corrupted by the world’s values.James 1:27
