God is so awesome!
This morning, I wrote about our worth to God. I had read the Luke scripture about the sparrows and how much God loves each one, had a wonderful prayer time, and then wrote down my thoughts.
I volunteer at our church on Thursdays, and when I noticed “His Eye is on the Sparrow” will be one of our songs this Sunday, I was amused. Then, a young woman came in and with tears in her eyes said she did not know where to turn. Her story of abuse was almost more than I could bear, and I saw her as a wounded sparrow that needed a special touch from God.
Because I spent time with God this morning, He had filled me to overflowing with His love and His joy, and praise God I was able to share that love and joy with this young woman. I told her how much God loves her. She said she felt worthless. I assured her that God placed such a high worth upon her that He sent His only son to die in her place. She said she felt her sins were too great. I told her I had never seen anything in the Bible that said Jesus died for all of our sins except the ones we thought were too great.
We cried together and prayed together. I hope she accepts my invitation to come to church on Sunday. I hope she seeks help to escape her situation. I hope she reads the Bible we gave her. I hope she can hang on in spite of her circumstances and give God a chance to work a miracle in her life. I hope, I pray, and I believe that God is wrapping His arms around this young woman, and that He will place people in her path who will love her and encourage her.
