I’ve been really emotional for the past few days. Why? I’m not sure. But I think it’s God.

You see, about a month ago, I asked the Lord to break me. Really break me.

And I think He’s doing just that. 

Last night is what made me really realize that my prayer was being answered as I was reading in 1 Timothy 5.

“Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need.”

This struck a nerve with me. Over the past year, I’ve had a growing desire to reach out to widows. One way I do that is by writing letters. There’s something special about receiving a letter. 

Caring for widows is biblical. James 1:27 says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” So I started writing. And found myself crying. Crying over their loss, interceding for them. In that hour period, I felt overcome with how gentle the Lord’s heart is. 

May God lavish His kindness on you this morning. Look out for any widows you know today.
