Recently while returning home from a short trip, in conversation with my travel companions we missed our exit to take the next stretch of our journey. What is the wise thing to do but take the next exit and turn around? At the stop light we encountered a chance to speak life into a man holding a sign. We asked what his needs were. He said that he needed shelter and food.
He shall cover you with his feathers, and under HIS wings you shall take refuge; HIS truth shall be your shield and your buckler. Psalm 91:4
We covered this man in prayer and help supply his needs. We then went on returning to our journey home. Maybe missing the exit was no mistake.
Stopping for lunch and to fill the vehicle with gas in a busy college town, I noticed a young very distraught woman, asking her what I may do to help her words were I am “hopeless and homeless “. One thing I noticed about her was that she would not make eye contact with me. She does not know the King were my thoughts, so with the help of my brothers we introduced this young woman to the King.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, in me you will have peace. John 16:33
Let us in this advent season live in the love of God. We as a church family have been through so much pain and suffering. May we continue to seek Him and share the gospel and be in prayer for this nation.
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2
May all of you have a blessed Christmas.
