Behind These Walls

Behind these walls is a future, that lives with a past.

Behind these walls are beautiful faces, laughter and heartache.

Behind these walls are young women who own a business, lead children's church, who see needs and fulfill dreams.

Behind these walls are young men who want to lead, pastors who are messengers; Who see the absence and strive to provide a glimpse of the Father.

Behind these walls are people brazen enough to say, "Lord, break my heart for the things that break yours."

Behind these walls are the broken.

Behind these walls are musicians with talent unrivaled; athletes with skills unknown and minds unchallenged.

Behind these walls is the future of a country, the pride of a Heavenly Father and the love of community.

Outside these walls, people are blind to the beauty within.
Outside these walls the judgment is cast, based largely on fear of the past.
Outside the walls are the poor and ignorant, those who will never know the inspiration that lies within.

God sees His children as they are, Not who we want them to be.

And He is pleased.

So true, it just breaks my heart! What are we going to do? Have you read "Radical" it is cutting me to my core! Both my hubs and I have actually read Crazy Love and Radical together so we too, like you, are together being moved, convicted and a lot of other things.
So glad you had the opportunity to do that together and really, couldn't have been a better place to celebrate your anniversary!
I would like to read the Hole in your gospel next!
