You don't have to tell me.
The world is broken.
But for crying out loud I am determined to be some glue.
In my own small way, I want to be a part of the healing.
My friend Jan posted this statement
on her facebook page several weeks ago,
and I can't stop thinking of the implications!!
there are many Sauls
that are one encounter away
from being the Pauls
God called them to be."
Never underestimate what God can do in people's lives,
no matter what the circumstances look like,
no matter what they claim to believe or not believe.
I am reminded once again to love people WHERE THEY'RE AT.
We have the tendency to want to try to help "fix" so often,
and truly with the very best of intentions.
But sometimes people just need a break
from being under the microscope.
Not everyone wants to be analyzed ALL the time.
Sometimes they just need the freedom to be where they're at,
even if it's in a messed up place right now,
without worrying whether or not we're breaking down
every little thing they say or do.
Sometimes they just need the grace to "be"
and the room to "become."
I'm not talking about setting healthy boundaries with people,
clearly that's necessary at times, nobody needs to be a doormat.
I'm simply saying that we have no time to love people
if we're always in analytical mode.
Sometimes people just need a touch IN SPITE OF where they're at.
