Your heart can be their home. Make their lives a personal cause in the life of your journey to ensure and empower these precious children to experience a key of freedom that would have never been possible if it had not been for the compassion that flows out of your soul.
I hope with all of my passions that people will understand the drastic and alternating life change they can have, implement, and empower into the hearts of others. We classify our journeys as those as personalized, individualized, and to each their own. However, so far from the truth, our journeys are meant to share in community, fellowship, and in communion with others. For whatever that means to each of us, the truth of the reality is that our lives were meant to share with others.
How can we be persons of influence to change the world if we are isolated, intimidated, and shallowest by the insecure short words of pain inflicted by others? Not much. What impact do you want to make? Whose lives do you want to touch? Let us do the same. Influence the lives of others, perhaps not by writing books, or giving great speeches in the limelight of great audience, but rather in the quiet human kindness of gentle generosity.
We must learn to stand in great confidence of the Creator who made us to be and accept the calling of our own destiny by which our Creator defined us to become. There was not mistake in the calling nor was it drawn up by some infinite mistake, rather by intelligent design of one who knew long before we did of the purpose we were destined to ensure.
I think of the lives of children that will only see that purpose met dependent on the decisions that some of us choose. It is not by random mistake or the "luck of the draw" that we were connected to the lives of the poor and needy among marginalized communities other than to be a spoken piece of advocacy, rising up above the grumbles of those who oppose. You, in your own strength, are the one that will bring about the key and secrets of hope for those who have been institutionalized by poverty's iron grip to ensure their own slavery. You, in your great compassion will be the only one that will be given the tools to free the life of a child through an eternal and unconditional love that flows like rivers of mercy out from the One who created us. It is your opportunity to see great life change appear before your very eyes. What a refreshing act of extraordinary kindness to bring a dazzling sense of hope and life into a child whose future seemed bleak and destined with dark shadows of hopelessness. It will be hopeless no further when we personally invest.
My 21 days of existence in one of the most challenging life experiences that I've ever encountered in my life has come to a close at this present time. I feel that through sand being blown through my entire body, a stomach infection requiring Cipro, and a loss of weight not expected, I realize that there comes a limit to the personal cause of risking one's own life for the lives of others. The silence, the enduring pain of dark silence has penetrated into the deepest part of my soul. Feeling that none others would come along to advocate when ability to do so was possible, I wonder how so many millions of dollars that so many hold onto cannot be invested into the lives of the poor and needy was the most revealing of all. People that see but pretend not to know the reality of poverty shock me, yet in the ignorance of their personal ambitions, turn their eyes away and pretend not to see, however, as reality speaks, they will never be able to say that they never knew of the human existance that thrives in places the rich never thought imaginable. As in using the outside ground as my personal toilet.
An old abandoned tire because my personal toilet for 21 days. Not comfortable, and certainly public to anyone that wanted to view became the only way that I could escape my internal indigestion that affected me day by day. While the west continued to glorify their personal wealth, the marginalized fight to survive in some of the harshest conditions imaginable. Simple, yet so difficult for so many in the west, it simply includes,
1.) An education for a child for one year, which means,
a.) Freedom to study and become an educated member to contribute to our society.
b.) Escape from the risk of modern day child slavery.
c.) Escape from risk of human kidnapping.
d.) Hope at finding a future of freedom from the vicious cycle of poverty.
Can you imagine what an empowering and encouraging act of advocacy you can implement by becoming a contributing member and partner with Voices4Peru?
Simply begin by partnering with your financial generosity at the link below.
This is where it begins. If you've never experienced the random act of kindness of bringing education to the life of a child nor have had the experience to drastically alter the course of the future for a child that otherwise will see death and destruction in the world of gangs and drugs or slavery, now is an opportunity for you to experience a profound joy and peace. I promise that you will experience an overwhelming sense of justice has been done by your generous act. As we recall that as it is declared in Proverbs, a chapter of the Bible, that we are to speak up for those who have no voice, and that we are to advocate for the rights of the poor and needy.
What an incredible adventure the human walk endures that we may walk with others to never feel the isolated alienation of living alone brings. We embrace each other in the great gesture of humanity's calling to justice. It is our turn. Let us move forward in constant change of consistent progress.
