Break My Heart Backstory

Break My Heart Backstory

It seems a lot of hearts are breaking/reeling after the election. Some feel helpless, some are confused, some are excited, and some are heart broken. Whatever you’re feeling, I can tell you that we serve a God who is bigger than any election. He’s higher than all kingdoms and rulers. Psalm 22:7 says, “All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him.”

With that in mind, I wanted to share a little back story on Healing Eyes. Last week I asked you to really seek out/find out what breaks your heart. Well, Healing Eyes was started because a heart was broken. Sarah, the founder of Healing Eyes, began this journey because God broke her heart for widows and for orphans. This was an incredibly painful journey that she was/is on. Sarah allowed her own heart to be broken for the widows and orphans in a small village in Uganda. She took her own grief and heartache and started Healing Eyes. She prayed for guidance and direction and found the exact spot that God was calling Healing Eyes too.

While I was in Kenya with Sarah, I had the opportunity to witness God’s leading in Healing Eyes and see how Sarah was wholeheartedly on board and open to the Lord’s leading. During that time, God broke my heart for the African people and he specifically showed me an avenue to help by partnering with Sarah and Healing Eyes.

It’s scary to quit your job and start a non-profit from scratch! It’s a lot of work to drum up volunteers and money for these widows and orphans. It’s much easier to numb our hearts to the pain in the world and not allow God to break our hearts for people half way across the world, but I ask that you allow God to break your heart. Talks with your family. Talk with your friends. Talk with your co-workers and let this season of giving come to life by being apart of something bigger than yourself!
