Imagine...

Imagine being in Haiti right now.
Imagine living in a sheet tent.
Imagine having to provide for your family when you are unemployed.
Imagine needing to find food and water for your family every day.
Imagine hearing that water is being distributed near the palace.
Imagine rushing to the palace grounds in the hopes to receive water.
Imagine the crowd that gathers in front of the palace.
Imagine making your way to the line.
Imagine the pushing and shoving that goes on.
Imagine waiting for hours in the hot sun, packed like sardines in a line.
Imagine nearing the front of the line only to hear the water is finished.
Imagine the yelling and screaming that goes on around you.
Imagine going back to your tented camp empty handed.
Imagine the frustration.
Imagine the anger.
Imagine the sadness.
Imagine the desperation.
Can we even begin to imagine what life is like for the Haitians right now?
Our lives are so rich in comparison.
I am praying once again for the Haitians.
Praying for strength and endurance.
Praying for His provision of food, water, shelter and medical care.
Praying for peace and joy in difficult circumstances.
Praying for a nation to turn to Him.
