Given it up to Jesus

At the dinner table tonight, I was updating my husband on all the latest news from our local area and around the world. We talked about the situation in Iran as explained to me by my friend, a former refugee from Iran, now citizen of the US. We talked about the Karen-Burmese children who have fled with their families to Thailand refugee camps–children who may not live past next week because the Burmese army is demanding that they be returned to Burma where they will likely be used as mine sweepers, servants to the army, raped or killed. We talked about these things as we sat in our peaceful home, eating a feast of “avocado pita delights” as we affectionately call our latest food obsession. And I thought I was going to throw up. What was I doing here in all this peace while people around the world were fighting for their very lives? I am grateful for the blessings God has given me; I’m not asking for terror to strike my life; I recognize that my struggles and griefs are relevant and important to God as well. But…

…As I come and go to work, laugh and joke with coworkers, go shopping, plan a 3 year wedding anniversary, enjoy the peace and quiet of my home, my coworker cannot concentrate on his work because his country is in turmoil, his friends and family face uncertainty and danger, his life has turned upside down, and he feels caught, unable to save anyone. And I seem relatively untouched by the whole ordeal…

So, we finished dinner, enjoyed our avocado pita delights, and set to washing dishes. I turned on the new CD that our friend just released, and here’s what came out of the speakers “I’m given it all to Jesus…” I felt a quiet come over me. I’m given it all to Jesus. This isn’t a “spiritual” excuse for inaction or apathy; this is not my rationale for ignoring these horrific injustices. This is just the first step of action. First, I’m giving it all to Jesus. Why? Because He is the Creator; He is the Healer; He is Just; He is Merciful; He knows Suffering; when everything was messed up, He came down into this world to make things right; He is the Beginning and the End; He IS. And we can trust Him. So, I’m giving all of this to Him. He can handle this; I can’t. Neither can anyone else. Then, step 2. Jesus, what would you have me do right here, right where I’m at? That’s what I’m going to do.

So, will you give it all to Jesus? And will you take step 2? He’ll be faithful with the first; He’ll also be faithful to give you something to do.
