UNACCEPTABLE

Almost everyday for two weeks I would get off work and drive around the mall close to my apartment, trying to decide what I wanted for dinner. Driving in circles thinking I am starving, but there’s so many choices. God reminded me of a statistic I read in Radical by David Platt “more than 26,000 children today will breathe their last breathe due to starvation or a preventable disease.” Static from Mercy Corps is “every 10 seconds a Child dies from hunger.”

“Complete starvation in adults leads to death within 8 to 12 weeks. In the final stages of starvation, adult humans experience a variety of neurological and psychiatric symptoms, including hallucinations and convulsions, as well as severe muscle pain and disturbances in heart rhythm.“ -Encyclopedia

8 to 12 weeks without food and thats for an adult! When I act like I am dying after 3 hours. “This year 36 million people will die of hunger.” -Theworldcounts.com To me this is unacceptable how can we let this happen. In American we have so much privilege with opportunities for our lives and to make a difference in the lives of others. Americas population makes up 4.4% of the worlds population, as a young adult who has never lacked anything, its hard to comprehend what the rest of the world goes through. It’s easy to read a statistic and go on with your day because you have never experienced it. This is one reason I really wanted to go overseas with YWAM to have a purpose in life, to help others, and to spread to gospel for there so many who are in need of a Savior.  “Little or no access to the gospel make up 42.2% of the worlds population and unevangelized make up 11% of the worlds population.”      -thetravelteam.org

Mark 16:15 He said to them “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

God has been stirring my heart to not settle for these statistics, to stop and truly think about it. Question myself and what really matters. I went to google and started researching a bunch of different topics that affect the world and its population such as: Orphan, human trafficking, suicide, hunger etc.

I want to share with you a Video God lead me to make that will hopefully stir your heart to not settle for the statistics, there is a victory and its in the name of Jesus.

  1. Thank you Jess, such an important Message and yes as we can see confirmed below in Scripture, very much needed, what we do for others we are doing for Jesus.

    All Children are under Grace until they are of an age of understanding, they are precious to God and they will be safe in His Arms Eternally in Heaven even if their life on earth is short which is not His will, we do indeed live in a fallen World that Satan Controls but God sends the Faithful to care and provide for His Children of all ages just as you are doing Jess and to also share about His great Love for them.

    Matthew 25 :31-40 When the Son of man shall come in His glory and all the Holy Angels with Him then shall He sit upon the Throne of His glory. And before Him shall be gathered all Nations and He shall separate them one from another as a Shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the Sheep on His right hand but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand; Come, ye blessed of my Father inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungred and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty and ye gave me drink, I was a stranger and ye took me in. Naked and ye clothed me, I was sick and ye visited me, I was in Prison and ye came unto me. Then shall the Righteous answer Him saying; Lord when saw we thee an hungred and fed thee? or thirsty and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger and took thee in? or naked and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick or in prison and came unto thee? And The King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my Brethren ye have done it unto Me.

  2. This is so true! I didn’t realize how much I have until I was hospitalized recently for an injury… suddenly everyday things were a luxury. Then that got me thinking that so many people live like this everyday. Now I am more grateful and praying for these people!
