Pour out your heart

I’m not as overwhelmed as I thought I might be. I have been continually asking the Lord to fill my heart and my mind with His words, his promises.  I have been able to cry out to Him, and ask Him to come alongside me and show me what He wants me to do here. As you walk along the dirt streets, it’s easy to give an ear to the whispers of the devil- ‘what do you possibly think you can do here, look at how bad it is here, how do you think you can help a place like Haiti’. But as I ask the Lord to reveal himself to me, to meet me where I am at, He does. He directed me to Lamentations (I know, when is the last time you read through Lamentations??) but it has some great stuff in there!!. Lam 2:19b says, “Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to Him for the lives of your children who faint from hunger at the head of every street” I sat speechless as tears rolled down my checks. He hears us when we pour out our hearts to Him.
