I’m having one of those weeks where nothing is going my way. I’ve tried everything I can to control my circumstances, but I’m slowly and painfully loosing the battle.

Is this where faith comes into the picture? Is this where I trust that God will save the day? Is that God’s job?

Give me your thoughts.

Homeless Friend

April 28, 2008 at 4:24 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

I’ve recently befriended a homeless lady. She usually makes her home in the ally between Cross Point Community Church and Park Ave. Baptist Church.
She’s not pushy. If I give her change she says “thank you,” but she doesn’t get mad if I don’t have change. She spends most of her time outside of the library on Charlotte. She reads a lot. She sits in the sun in the mornings and in the shade in the afternoon. She seems so content.

I don’t know her name, and we usually just talk about the weather.

I don’t know if she dreams of being rich or at least about owning a bed.

I don’t know if she has family somewhere.

I don’t know if she believes in a god.

I don’t know if she eats regularly.

I sometimes wonder what God has planned for people like her. How does this lady fit into His story? How is her life giving glory to His name?

I don’t pretend to understand God. I just have faith that he is in control.
