My heart is heavy!

I want to talk a little more about my thoughts and how God's been working with me these days. I've been busy lately suffering and working hard to help as much as i can my neighbors in Haiti. My heart mourns each life lost, and even more those who died slowly burried alive in the rubbles. I wish i could take a plane right now and fly out there to lend a helping hand :(

I was born and raised in New York City, but my parents come from Dominican Republic. To us this hit home, not only because is so close to home but this could of been my country. And now Haitians are crossing the border to Dominican Republic by the Thousands to find refuge in DR. Can you blame them? We're praying for help to come FAST because of possible decease outbreak.

2 days ago as i watched CNN- I saw some people singing, clapping, calling out to God- It moved me and hope filled my heart. One can think how can a loving and merciful God allow such catastrophic events, but the question of the heart is- "Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it, why hast Thou made me ?" (Romans 9:20). We do not establish the standars of what is right. There is really no such thing as the “innocent” suffering. "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) I believe God allow such horrific event for the people of Haiti to turn to Him, give Him glory.

“For we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). Let's continue to pray for this country- and look examine our hearts and relationship with our creator- For we shall meet with Him soon, are you ready for that day?

It is such a devastating thing to have happened. Did you know that Sumaritains purse, a christian org. is already their helping people and spreading the gospel. Just thought I would let you know about them, if you don't, since it sounds like you have a heart for these people:)God bless you!

I know I am ready whenever God takes me. Thanks for posting this. My heart is also heavy for these people and the people that lost their lives without living their lives for God! Praying for the country as a whole!

Too many times I stop to think, "why?" Why do people suffer like that? The verses you mentioned remind me that it's not up to us to question the Lord- He truly does have a plan, and like you said, people do not suffer in vain- it's all a part of getting each one of us to 100% turn to Him in praise and prayer...but it's still so difficult to see humanity suffer like this. Thank you for writing this and the people of Haiti are in my prayers.

I share in your grief. I was raised in NYC and I am Puerto Rican. I know that many from the home island as well are heartbroken at what they see. We must continue to pray that God put in place the services needed such as surgeons in Haiti and more supplies. God is a God of mercy and we are to watch and pray together for that country and the rest of the world! Amen
