“Lord, here are my small hands. Use them for big things.
Here are my small feet. Take them where you want them to go.
Here is my small voice. Use it to echo your heart to the world.
Father, break my heart for what breaks yours.”
The Lord has been slowly answering this prayer of mine. Although I haven’t yet had the privilege to go and do, as my heart remains steady in the place of prayer, as I ask Him to break my heart for what breaks His, He is doing just that. We often want the big things. To go and truly be the hands and feet of Jesus. But what if I could do something, right where I am, with the resources I have, to make a difference, to save a life?
Last year I watched the journey of a friend I know only through blogging unfold, and my heart was broken. I began to ask the Lord what could I do? You see, I feel so small and insignificant at times. But this I know: God can take my weak YES and use it for His glory! Small always turns to big in the hands of a Mighty God!

Stories like this and this, they have changed me. A place so deep in my heart has been carved, I wonder if it can truly ever be filled. But I am compelled to use what little I have to make a difference in this world. This blog was born out of a place of surrender unto the Lord. “Here am I Lord. Use me for Your glory.” Whatever that looks like, in the big and the small, His heart will be heard through me.
I have this amazing privilege to partner with World Help, to use my words, my voice and my platform to bring awareness. I am humbled. I know that it will change me. I can no longer ask to see the world through His eyes and remain unmoved.
Friends, how about you? Are you compelled to make a difference, no matter how small or insignificant you feel? Will you offer to God your weak yes, and see what He will do? I am just one voice, you are just one voice, but together we are a strong and mighty chorus. Together we can share the Father’s heart and change the world.
The invitation has been given. The application process is simple. Will you dare to dream with me? I don’t know exactly all that God will do in and through me as I jump in with both feet. But my heart cries, “break my heart Lord, for what breaks yours.”
I’m fully in. I can never go back.
