May the things that hurt God's heart hurt ours

As I watched a girl painfully walk out of the abortion clinic, yesterday, with her boy friend by her side, It pained me to even watch or make any type of contact with her. She looked so hurt and broken, and only God knows what she or her boy friend were feeling at the moment.
As I watched a women cross the street looking exactly like a man it made a knot twist up in my stomach. As I spoke to that same women just a week ago, I know that she professes to believe in God and know God and she could even quote certain passages in his word but of coarse quoted nothing of Romans 1 when talking about God giving the wicked up unto their own uncleanliness. She claims that God LOVES her and created, She proclaims boldly that abortion has nothing to do with going against God's law and as she went on and on twisting scripture, defending abortion, defending gay rights, and proclaiming that she knows God, I could not help but think what a disappointment she will find when she discovers that she has created a God in her own image since she chose to close her ears to our warnings. I could not tell her that God loved her but hated her sin because that would be lying so all I could do was pray for that lost, soul that is dead in sin and blinded by the truth.
 Psalm 5:4-6:
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
   with you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand
   in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
 6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
   you, LORD, detest.
Romans 1: 22-24
22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
 24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 

As I saw a couple sitting on the train dressed as demonic figures for a Halloween party, I suppose they were going to, I could not help but notice the misery they drowned in and the darkness that possessed their bodies and pray for the blood of Jesus to free them from the burdens they are debt to. 

We live in a world swarming in wickedness and although it boggles our mind and pierces our heart we must pray for the lost and fulfill the great commission that God has called us to which is to go out and spread the good news to, all the gentiles, that Christ is risen and is coming again and they can be free from sin if they only choose to turn to the cross and follow Christ because without the blood of Jesus we lie in wait for an eternal damnation. 
Does your heart break at the things that breaks God's heart or have we become desensitized to it?

Lay up treasures in heaven...

I was talking to someone a while ago, and they asked me what I wanted to do after high school. I told them I was thinking about college, but I'm not sure exactly which one to go to, or if I wanted to go to one right after high school. I explained how I wanted to use my teens and 20's to go on missions, give people the gospel, and reach out to those in need. They said in a very sarcastic voice, "So you wanna waste your time speaking to people who won't even listen to you while you could have a career and a lot of money. What a great future you have." Then they laughed. I thought that was funny too. I found it funny how they think it's a waste of time to reach out to souls who are facing eternal condemnation. Why is it that it's more important to have fame, or all the money, cars, or clothes you can possibly have?
I'd rather Live for Christ who died for me, then to live for
 money which will devour me.
Is it really better to use up your life in things that are material, and will one day be gone, leaving you alone? Investing your time in souls that God-willing will one day be in heaven for all of eternity is the best thing you could ever do in this life! Does it really matter that you probably won't be famous? Does it really matter that you won't have the best cars or clothes? Does it? I'd rather live my short life for Christ, and to have all of eternity to be God's princess in heaven, then to have a moment's pleasure, and all of eternity- forever, condemned with the burden of knowing I wasted my life.
"But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” - Acts 6:4
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." ~Mathew 6:19-21

I don't usually recommend movies to people, but this one is a must! The title is Courageous and I just recently saw this with my family. It's from the makers of Fireproof, Facing the Giants, and Flywheel. This movie was funny, tragic, impacting, suspenseful, and most of all, has a beautiful, touching message, with biblical principles. 
This movie challenges men to take up the role of spiritual leaders of their homes, to be what the Bible calls a man. It puts a lot of emphasis on how crucial it is for a father to cherish the years God gave him with his wife and children, and most importantly, how men need to take responsibility for their actions- to take up the role of a man. I cried, laughed, and thought deeply while I was watching this movie, but words can not describe how great it really is! You are missing out if you don't go to see it! :)

Picture this...

Picture this....

you come to the cross you get on your knees tired, confused, frustrated, sad, weak, dirty & full of sin!
You pour you heart out before God...tell him "I can't do this, I'm tired! I NEED YOU"
Just a HONEST cry out for help!
But, when you get up...And receive his AMAZING GRACE...

        You're new! you're washed! YOUR FREE! That just amazes me every time! To see that he loves me even though I am SO unworthy.... I PRAISE GOD!
Your crowned with Glory & Holiness and just PRAISE the Lord with all you are!
