On the Other Side of the Street

     Last week, I was driving a young man to Metro to take his first GED test.  As we were turning onto the campus, he looked around and said that he used to live in that area across the street.  That was where he was in a gang for over 10 years and where he was shot and had to run for his life with the shot wound.  Now, on the other side of the street, he was taking his first GED test.  He said that he never imagined this would ever happen and that it was incredibly humbling.
     Fast forward through the two and a half hour test, and he PASSED!  When he heard the good news, he was beaming with JOY and beyond words!
     God showed me through this that He can take us to the place of our deepest pain and turn that into triumph, as long as we turn it all over to Him. 
     Please keep this young man in your prayers so that, with God’s help, he can continue on this journey, grow in his relationship with Christ, and triumph over his pain.
