A voice

Be a voice,
for the voiceless.

There are people in this world without one!
Oppression makes me sick.

My heart LONGS for the day when there is no more pain or sorrow.

We are capable of astounding love,
and yet the opposite is just as true.

I wish it were not so.

My heart is stirred... with merely hearing about sex trafficking and exploitation.  It is happening around the world and in our own backyard.  How can this be?!  What a sick reality!  The vulgarity of treating a human as a sex slave! 

I pray for an END to this!!  Beautiful women and children being victimized!!

The lies, the pain, the wretched heartache.  It is too much to bear!

But there IS HOPE.  I want to be a part of that.  
To be a light in the darkness.

I have never heard of anything so dark!
But God is hope.  HE WILL bring healing and a way out...
for the oppressed.

God, be their freedom!!! 

"Be strong; fear not!
Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
with the recompense of God.
He will come and save you."
Isaiah 35:4   

be yourself!

I am unique! And you are too. Love it.

And love this sight so fair
