our beautiful little hodge-podge study
That is my story of today...it is one in which I was weak, tired, frail, busy, darting from place to place, filled with emotion from the lives I encountered. It is one in which God proved that he is the strong one, that my weakness is not a liability but rather, it is there that his power, his strength can rest.
How do we hold onto God? I believe it is he that holds onto us.
Haven't you felt it? Those days you cannot hold yourself up, but you make it through, and you even look back with joy realizing that something else, someone else was giving life to you...?
By the time I got to the Corner, I was so tired. I thought, "God, I don't have the energy today."
But as I walked over, crossed the 4 lanes of traffic, and saw the smiles on three men's faces as I walked up, I knew God would carry me. We shook hands, exchanged names, and so began the fantastic roller coaster ride that can be the Corner. It's a time where people's hearts and needs come flowing out, where people who perhaps aren't often heard get to be heard.
