Inspirational stories come from the writers heart and soul. God put His "heart" in you. He didn't just create you. He invested Himself in you. You are the inspirational story that emerged from the heart and soul of the Father. Who you are is a person worth knowing well.

What If???

Yesterday we had a young lady named Jessica come to church and speak about her life as a missionary to Uganda Africa! During her talk I was crying though out the whole thing however one thing really stood out to me! She told a story about how she would always say I love you to the kids in the family home that she works with! These kids have never heard that words I love you! They have never said the words I love you! So it really made me start to think about what would my life be like if I never heard the words I love you!

Never hearing my daddy's sweet voice saying I love you! Never hearing Kate Elizabeth say I love you Miss. Jinny over and over again in a 4 hour period! :) Never hearing my friends say I love you! Never hearing the people I care about the most say I love you! Man how would my attitude be different if I never heard those 3 words!

Here in America we sometimes view those words as cliche words! Oh don't say I love you because you never know what that person might think when you say it! Then there are times where here in American we take those words for granted! But think about thousands of kids who have NEVER hear those 3 words! How would you life be so very different?

Have you ever thought about what your life would be like if you never heard the words "I LOVE YOU"

Hey girl... When I heard Jess speak I too was moved to tears. What struck me was that I've thought about kids who have never HEARD I love you but I hadn't thought about kids who had never said I love you to someone else. I can't imagine never having heard or felt what it meant to be loved or feel love. I often wonder too how people get through life never hearing that Jesus loves them. I am so glad someone once told me that. That Jesus the God who created me.. not only made me... but LOVES me, cherishes me and desires a relationship with me. What a blessing love is. Thanks for this post.
