party of 8
First of all, I want to take this opportunity to greet each and everyone a peaceful and wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration.
This post is actually a continuation of the topic this week at IF which is clandestine. It was about a woman that I met in the past, who was working in a crisis center. I don’t know her personally but when we had this chat for some hours one day, she talked passionately about her job. She has told me her own feelings for women who have experienced abuse and violence in their lives. That it was her choice to work there in a graveyard shift wherein most of the victims decided to show up in the doorsteps of the center, in the darkness of the night. I was touched by her stories and every encounter she had experienced, and I could imagine how she would open her arms so widely to welcome each and every woman-----just to assure them that everything would be alright……..
In my thoughts when I finished this illustration, was also about how I am experiencing God in my life. How He always opened His arms so wide to embrace me every time I fall. That scene will always stay so vivid in my mind because He came to my dream one day. That was also the inspiration of the text in my profile.
I am also sharing with you a forwarded message I received the other day…………
“There comes a point in your life when you realize
who never did,
who won't anymore...
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”
Today in my reading table is a quote from “Pastor Joseph Prince’s Destined to reign Devotional book”----God looks beyond what man sees and says about you, and He has dreams for you that are bigger that you can imagine.
1 Samuel 16:7
“……For the Lord does not see as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
