Grace of God

KGOR brought to us a young, 20 year old woman who had slept in their parking lot. I had the opportunity to talk with her and discovered that her father had kicked her out of the house in one of his drunken stupors. She walked until she found a park bench and sat down. That is where the employees of KGOR found her.
She was brokenhearted and hungry. We were able to provide her a warm meal and hear more of her story. When she left to live with her father she felt she hurt her mother deeply and had not spoken with her in a few years. I gave her the opportunity to call her mother where she was welcomed with open arms and the relationship was restored. Mom was struggling too but wanted her daughter to come home.
We made a stop by the Timberlake Outreach Center to pick up a food pantry and other items. With much food and bread in tow we dropped off a daughter to the longing arms of a mother. The daughter just kept saying it was not a coincidence that God placed her on that park bench. After a couple of weeks of getting to know Mom again she is planning to come back to the Lydia House to do the New Life Recovery Program.
There are no coincidences only God’s gracious plans.
