Ground Zero

It started at ground zero. A microscopic organism caused havoc on an entire planet and shut down the World in the physical realm. It made us worry, fear, retreat, and isolate.

What might God do, if we became truly infected with His love? What if we stopped protecting our hearts from His painful work in us? What if we let Him in and burn away the selfishness? What if we died … to self?

What if deeds done and words spoken in the name of Jesus become that contagious? Fueled by the Holy Spirit, may they have the power to set the World on fire with the Love of God?

What if you are ground zero?

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.
John 15:16-17

“Father, Creator and Sustainer of our souls, give us the awareness of our great and dangerous purpose, namely to show a hurting world you came to cause peace through Jesus Christ. Make us bold and start with us!”

(Prose and Pictures, Heidi Viars 2020)

  10. Dear Heidi,

    I live in Sitka, Alaska and was forwarded one of your blogs last winter by a friend of mine who was forwarded it by her sister in Wisconsin. So the Wings of the Dawn have flown our way, and I am grateful.

    Keep writing and sharing; God has given you a lovely ministry!

    How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Verse 17

    For His glory, Sue
