Personal Reflections... September 2020
I am not one to blog, or write out my thoughts and feelings publicly, however I feel that this deserves some vulnerability on my part.
As I reflect on the year 2020 and on all that has happened, (and hasn't happened), I wonder if this year was meant to bring me "20/20 vision" [the clarity or sharpness of vision].
Many times I wonder why I have grown up with the luxuries that I have, when others suffer so deeply. I often think about the opportunities and the privileges that I have, and wonder if I'm using these advantages for my own gain or to help those who are oppressed.
For me the impact of Covid-19 was relatively uneventful; I shifted working from an office on a daily basis, to working from home, I saw my friends & family less, I watched church on TV rather than gather in person, and I watched my nephew grow up via FaceTime.
Did I miss a lot of things? yes.
Was I lonely at times? yes.
But I was never hungry, I was never thirsty, I never had to wonder where my next meal was coming from, or how I would pay my bills.
I cannot begin to imagine what that feels like. As I read through some of the stories from the frontlines via Compassion's website, my heart was compelled to do something. I can no longer sit back - I want to help be a part of the solution to the struggles that SO many people are facing worldwide today.
I've made a commitment to myself that I'm going to share with you.
I want to approach injustices in this world with this mindset:
No longer asking myself "If I help them, how will this affect me?" but rather asking the question "If I don't help the oppressed, what will happen to them?".
