Vulnerable hearts that are open to each other; the courage to ask the question that begs to be asked; the need to go even when it is complicated -- these are God moments.
I know you've read the following verse before or have at least heard it, but I want you to read it in light of another person's need....
Matthew 7:7 says, " Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."
Sometimes hurting people you are around need you to ask the question that begs to be ask. They need you to seek out their pain, seek out their stories. Sometimes they need you to persist in reaching out to them even when they have smiles on their faces.
This weekend is the official beginning of the Christmas season. Shopping is pushed. This isn't a bad thing -- it is very commercial but please don't see this as a negative thing. Retailers and their families need to eat too.
Anyway, the Christmas season is the perfect time to reach out. Hearts are a bit more open. People are open to hope and love and joy.....Take those moments.
Please ask when you sense someone needs to be healed.
