The Lord showed me a few things tonight.
I have it so good, I cannot complain ever. ever ever. If I say I'm anything but blessed, I'm a fool and a liar.
It is NOT a sin to have a savings account, but it is useless if you do not use it and steward it well. It is an insult to God to not give money to those who need it, if it will otherwise sit in your bank account.
We just don't get it. As Christians. We just don't get it.
God is so much bigger.
Last night, as Hayden got back from Chapel, and was getting out of his car, a woman was standing, bawling her eyes out in our driveway screaming "PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME." Hayden was out of gas, so he and I took my car to take here wherever she needed to go. She told us her name was Sharon, and she needed to get to Nathan Hunt Drive, off of Kivett and Brentwood. She was...hysterical. It was very, very difficult to decipher her speech. We offered prayer, kind words, and the Love of Jesus to her as we drove her around. We got to Nathan Hunt, and she said she didn't know where to go, and just wanted a cigarette. We took her to McDonald's when she said she was starving and bought her a couple meals worth of food, and then took her and bought her a motel room at the Travel Inn Express, just down the street from our house. We were able to pray with her again, as well speak the Truth and Love of Jesus Christ into her life, and leave her with a Bible, some change, some gift cards to Subway and Food Lion, and a place to sleep for the night. Hayden picked her up this morning from Travel Inn, and dropped her off at her Uncle's off Nathan Hunt in High Point.
Praying that seeds planted will come to fruition by the Grace of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
