The Talk of the Town...

I wrote this yesterday during the last song in response to Terry's lesson. It really spoke to me. And what's interesting is the reason it stood out to me. Abba's been working on my heart lately and the very thing Terry spoke about is that which He's been speaking to me about...through my prayers and through deep discussions with friends.
"I have not been the one beaten, but the bystander...watching and doing nothing. The world is broken and beaten down, in need of love. I know Love and essentially have been content to keep Him to myself. I'm no longer content. But I am weak and frightened, I can't do this on my own. For the longest time I've been praying for self-confidence. No more. My need is Christ-confidence. So pray for me, that I'll embrace the confidence He's been trying to give me. I want the world to say, she did not give up on me. She did not give up on me. Jesus. Did. Not. Give. Up. On. Me."

"I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love."
~Mother Teresa

I love you hannah!! I saw you were writing and was very curious....but now I know what it said. I think a lot of us feel this way. As for me, you know where I've been standing lately. But I love you, and you are in my prayers, just as I am yours!

In Christ,
Ashlie <3
