It started in a season of purposelessness. My heart was heavy and weighed down by an unknown burden. Nearing CNY, my huddle leader sent me a text and nudged me to join the CNY revo. I was unwilling at first, but suddenly, the Holy Spirit started prompting me (Philippians 2:13). I felt like my heart was melting bit by bit as God began to reveal His heart for the unseen people.
I brought revo up to my family, we prayed, and my mom and I geared up to drive around our city, Kota Kinabalu to bless the homeless. We bought 3 tins of biscuits and boxes of masks and managed to bless three women with the gifts.
However, the meeting with the first woman impacted us a lot. When the woman turned around and saw us, her eyes lit up and she gave us a big kind smile. Whether that smile was of true contentment, pure kindness, or just a mask, I would never know. Through that encounter, I believe that we had a glimpse of what it means by “break my heart for what breaks Yours”. By looking at the woman’s eyes, my mom is reminded on the importance of salvation. God did not create humans to be like this. He does not want us to be in lack, but to live an abundant life (John 10:10).
Through revo, I gained a sense of purpose and more importantly, this experience has unveiled a new part of God’s love and heart to not just me, but my family as well. With this, I would like to encourage you to pray that God would open your eyes to see the unseen and the needy around you.
All glory to God!
(James 1:27, Romans 12:10)
