precious in His sight

We watched most of this special the other night. We didn't see the beginning. These clips are heartbreaking. But I think it is too easy for us to close our eyes to the plight of others.
What good does it do to know about this? I don't know. There isn't much I can do. But I have prayed for God's light to shine into these women's lives.
At least it can make us grateful for our blessings and maybe more content.
The good news is that in some of the most remote and poor villages, there are schools. The girls dance and play and laugh... without any kind of covering on their faces. Some of the schools are even co-ed. The girls are given the option to finish school and make their own choices regarding marriage, etc. There is always hope. But without the Truth, and Light, they will forever be in bondage.


  1. We think every where is like here, and it's not.

  2. Father, I pray that you would shine your light of truth into this nation and to these women. Help them see themselves as you see them. Give them peace and hope in spite of their circumstances.

    Let us stop ignoring the plight of those who are oppressed in other countries. Send aid and solace to these women and children and help us remember to pray for them.

    In Jesus Name, Amen

  3. One of the thoughts I entertain frequently is: why was I born here in the U.S. and that woman was born there? I know, the providence of God, but it about boggles my mind sometimes. What a shameful society!


I love to hear your thoughts!
