Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:17
I have a voice and want to use it to speak for those who are powerless and unable to speak for themselves.
Our world is filled with people in desparate need of our help–broken, crushed, abused, starving, and dying–waiting, hoping someone will come to their aid. What can I…one person…do…to help so many in need? The truth is I can do absolutely nothing, but I serve a God who can! My God fed five thousand plus with only five loaves of bread and two fish. “There’s a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this hug crowd?”
“Tell everyone to sit down,” Jesus said. So they all sat down on the grassy slopes. (The men alone numbered about 5,000.) Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and distributed them to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate as much as they wanted. After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.” So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves. John 6:9-13
I’m trusting God to turn my five loaves and two fish into five thousand plus.
