The phone call I mentioned yesterday was completed. To my amazement, the person I am planning this presentation with has her own story of abuse. She said it has been her motivation to stay in education to assist those in the profession who are still bound by their past; and for some, who haven’t even recognized their own symptoms. As she and I told our stories to one another we could easily see why God had put us together to do this presentation for the others. Now, we know our assignment, our next step is designing how to make the presentation as God wants it done. My fear has turned into anticipation as I wait for God’s Light to shine.
Yesterday I finished the last of the Spring work I wanted to get done while on spring break. Now it is just finishing up some chores for the day. A young man whom I’ve known since he was a boy is going to meet up with me later today when he is off work. He says he’ll contact me when he is done so we can set a place to meet. I don’t know what his story is, just that he has gotten himself into some trouble and wants to get back to health. His mom, who use to work for me, and I happened to meet a couple weeks ago. I asked how her son was doing and that opened the door for today’s meeting. I’m praying for this meeting to actually transpire.
Proverbs 9:8 & 9 say, “Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate you; reprove a wise man and he will love you. Give instructions to a wise man and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man and he will increase in learning.” This is today’s TRUST and HOPE.
