Planting Seeds

Sometimes we wonder why; but always remember God is in control. 
Recently I saw a woman in the lunch line that I have known for years. As I approached her I could smell the alcohol. I gave her a hug anyway and asked her when she was going to come in and stop the abuse she has struggled with for years. “You would like that wouldn’t you, Kate? I know I need to, and one day I will and I will be somebody and you will be proud of me.” I told her she wouldn’t be somebody someday because she already is somebody in God’s eyes. She is already a child of God and He wants her to come home. She is a beautiful woman needing guidance, faith, hope and love. She had a tear in her eyes when she looked up at me and said, “Really Kate? I ain’t never been nobody. You make me feel like I could be somebody.” I asked her to join me at my table after she got her tray. She said she would, but then sat with the men she was with. She left without me seeing her again. 
Please pray for my friend. Seeds were planted and watering needs to take place. 
I have to remember that God is in control and He given us the choice to follow Him or not. 

I place my friend in His hands. Praises be to God.
