Zeal For God

I often wonder why God made me so sensitive…why I cry when I come across a butterfly that has died…when kids are being brutal to a tree my heart aches…why I can’t bear to kill any little creature in nature and I always choose to catch them and release them back outside when others just choose to stomp on them. I often wonder why my heart is moved so powerfully when I see someone hurting in …life and my first response is to help them, encourage them and love them unconditionally and why others sit back and judge. Why I choose to not watch the news because my heart hurts so much to see so much darkness in the world and others are completely numb to it? Why did God make me so sensitive to other people’s pain and give me the ability to feel it as if it were my own? I once thought these feelings were a curse in my life because it left me sad and confused. The feelings I experienced on a daily bases began to effect my own personal life. These feelings kept me hidden in my own home fearful of the world and all that was going on. Over the years God has awakened me to the gift He has given me. The ability to be so sensitive, when balanced in Him, is a powerful things. I appreciate now more than ever that I am so sensitive to His spirit, people’s needs, God’s beautiful creation and the world we live in. It moves me to act. It moves me to stay so focused on Him so His light within me can shine bright in hopes that someone around me will be greatly effected by His love through me. Now I find myself wondering why more people aren’t sensitive? Why more aren’t choosing to help the ones in need, to love one another unconditionally. Is it we have lost our focus? Is it that we focus more on ourselves and our own needs? On my weary days I wonder what is the point of pressing in so hard to shine so bright. There is so much darkness and so few workers truly giving it their all to God. Why are we so selfish? How hard is it to “choose” to take time to be still with God, to get so filled up with His love that it just naturally pours out of us. I am saddened at the lack of zeal we have for God and at the lack of compassion we have for others. I will keep pressing in. I will keep fighting the good fight. I will keep loving until it hurts. My question is will you join me?
