Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? Luke 12:24 KJV
Rather than take clients to dinner this week we did outreach so that we can stay connected to our friends. It was a joy to see some of them and they were delighted to see us after an absence of 3 weeks. Unfortunately there are some new women out there working the streets and they broke our hearts.
When we saw her the first thing we noticed is that she really looked out of place. She was dressed in a pretty beige sheath, wearing high-heels, perfect make-up and hair. She looked like she just stepped out of a corporate office, but the look in her eyes was absolute fear. When we approached her we thought she might run away but she timidly said yes to our offer of a lunch bag and prayer. She was not the only girl out there these last 2 evenings. We meet way too many new girls working the streets. Some evenings your heart is just so heavy with the knowledge that these ladies are walking a path of destruction. Heartfelt prayers are offered up for these women, Kleenex is passed between hands as they cry when we pray for them. As we drive away we seek the Lord’s strength to love these lost souls, to bring healing to their bodies, their souls and most especially to their families, Mom’s, Dad’s, and children.
The Lord is so faithful to remind us that He cares for each of them by allowing us to see a visual reminder of Luke 12:24. Thank you Jesus that you care for us more than even the fowl hanging out in the middle of the hood! (pic of birds not attached)
