A few months back I shared about having a Mother's Heart. I shared that although I don't have any children of my own, God has blessed me with many children in my life.
Last week I was hanging out with some of the girls I have been mentoring for the last few years, and I just had an overwhelming sense of love for them. I felt love for them that I am sure parents feel for their children...so much that I felt like I was going to explode...so much love that I couldn't contain it.
Feeling that love for them just broke me. Have you ever had God break your heart for someone or something, and you are moved to continuously pray and long for them?
It is like that, but stronger than I have ever felt before.
I have loved these girls for years, and God broke my heart for the neighborhood they live in and the families who live there a long time ago, but last week God pulled me in deeper.
So deep I am completely immersed in God's love for these girls.
