For a few years the Lord locked hearts with my sweet friends at Refuge of Light. I not only admire their work but they are dear family to this heart of mine. The Lord blessed us both with a music video by the wonderful people at Glow Creative Media that features the Refuge of Light safe home and girls. It had been a dream we discussed for several years but suddenly the hand of God moved and surprised us all very unexpectedly … within a few short weeks the video was done with Hush Little Baby and released last night at the Refuge of Light Gala. The girls were an integral part in this video.
On a Personal Note:
I knew the song was special and important to the heart of God, for I remember well the very day He breathed it to my own heart. It has become one of our most intimate times together. It also shows the Father heart who cares so tenderly for His children. The song certainly is a very personal one for me as it was written from a place of deep sorrow. So there are many levels of healing declared in this video. Yet, it also represents the many broken hearts the Lord wants to tend in this hour…for He has a work for each heart to do for Him…and He is truly all about restoration.
It seems as well the Lord’s heart intent was to use it to serve as the song to represent Refuge of Light and girls who are now residing in the Refuge safe home. Girls rescued from child sex trafficking, yet now beginning to blossom with their gifts, talents, and dreams. You will catch a glimpse of them in this video and I pray it melts your heart. They are overcomers..as is the ministry itself. There is much need for provision to keep this home open and you may well never understand the obstacles the enemy continues to place perfectly to slow God’s work. However, this Refuge of Light family of mine answered a call…by simply saying yes…and losing their own lives…that others may find life and redemption through Christ. From sign language, to baking, to crocheting….we have singers, writers, and yes.. He is also raising up evangelists from this group. The Lord has had the last word in their little lives and also in the lives of their babies. The generational line has now been changed for the glory of God. They are now warriors rebuilding the ruins….
Today is my birthday and this was my personal birthday present from my sweet Jesus this year. But for my birthday presents I would like to ask each one viewing this video to pray about becoming a Freedom Fighter for these girls through Refuge of Light. For only $25 a month you can make a huge difference in their lives and the lives of other girls to come. As you also step out as He leads… you too will be fulfilling Isaiah 61
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations….
Love MUCH…..please share with your friends and family.
