This morning at about 3:30am I was at a gas station talking to the guy who worked there when a lady came in to get some hot coffee. I started talking to this lady and after getting to know her I found out she was living on the streets (which was almost obvious because of what she was wearing).  Normally some one wouldn’t talk to a lady who looked like she did and I could tell by her urge to talk to me. I could tell life didn’t really play in her favor. I could tell by talking to her she had made a few bad decisions that stuck her there (not that I can judge because I don’t know her) I talked to this lady for at least 30 minutes because I didn’t have anywhere to be and she didn’t have anywhere to go.

The Miracle of His Short Presence

Warning: The following story may be disturbing to some readers. Reader discretion is advised.

I would like to share a little about myself. I got saved as a teenager at a youth group meeting that my friend invited me too. Through my adult life I had a roller coaster relationship with God. Often I would wander from The Lord, and often, in the middle of a crisis, I would come back to him. It seems I only lived for Christ when it was convenient for me.
