god awakens • restores • heals ••• A few days ago I was stuck at a stoplight as a young woman began crossing the street. She looked tired — I could see it in her eyes. She seemed defeated, in whatever battle she was fighting. Maybe she was on her way to a job she enjoys, or maybe she was thinking about where her next meal would come from. Something in that moment whispered, “pray.” So I did. I prayed that she would know she is loved. That she is beautiful. That she is strong. I prayed she would experience pure joy.
In this season of lent, instead of thinking about what we can’t or shouldn’t do, let’s focus on what we CAN do to feed our souls, restore life and bring us closer to Our Father. ••• In the few moments it took me to pray in my car that day, the Spirit was there. With her, with me, everywhere. - 8 days ago
