So often I walk the streets surrounding our Compassion projects and various songs play through my head
Sometimes its the song that’s playing on a radio in a nearby house that can be heard through the streets
This day as we rounded the corner as surreal as it was
“When You Wish Upon a Star”
I let my flesh start to doubt, start to think. . .
Where do “Dreams come true” here??
But then other songs enter. Songs that quickly turn to prayers.
Prayers over the streets covered in trash and mud.
Songs about the Kingdom that turn to Prayers about the Kingdom.
The song that continues to be my prayer these days is John Mark McMillan’s
How he loves Us
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all
I am reminded that these streets are covered by His Love
The Streets with tin front doors and cardboard walls
He Loves us All
These Streets are not their Home.
