On the Streets…Part 2

     Then Tabitha said, “Jessica, I used to be the one eating off of vans delivering food, and now God is using me to bring hope to people that have been where I have been.”
     I could see tears forming in her eyes and she became silent (if you know Tabitha, silence from her is a rare thing).  God was speaking to her heart at that moment.  You could tell at that moment God was showing her how much he loves her!
     I stopped the van, grabbed their hands, and we prayed.  We thanked God for His grace, His love, His acceptance of us, His love for us, and for changing us with his Love!  We thanked Him for the opportunity to be His hands and feet. 
     Today I was blessed!  Blessed to experience not only people on the streets lives being touched, but to see the lives of two women here at the Lydia house whose lives are being transformed.  Hope for lasting change!
     These women were shown that God uses our mess for greatness, if we let Him.  God transforms the willing and He will continue to work in these two ladies’ lives because with willing hearts they pleaded today, “God use us.”  WOW! 
     As we got out of the van at the end of the day, they hugged me and said, “We are willing to help whenever you need someone!”  On top of all of these blessings, I got to see their servants’ hearts!  Thank you, Jesus, for Your out pouring of LOVE!
     I hope this blesses all of you as much as it has blessed me!
