This post is for anyone who has ever been afraid of the dark, who has felt like you just can’t breathe. Strangers Come Inside The night I became afraid happened when someone broke into our home, and it was then, when I was around six-years-old that I started dreading bedtime. Before that night, the train […]
A Planned Stop This post is a reminder that when you feel stranded, God can send someone to save you! Tonight, I drove across this bridge to pass out burgers and blankets to my homeless friends, to a group who live off the side of the embankment in the woods. Now I’d already visited the […]
Should We Help the Homeless? “Usually.” That’s the word I heard in my head after asking myself if I should stop and help a homeless man who held a sign that read: I am hungry. I pulled through the parking lot for a coffee at McDonald’s, and pondered the idea, knowing full well, I had […]
What is Your Need? “Pray for the truth to be revealed. The Lord knows what I need. He knows my heart.” Those words slipped from her quivering lips at the end of a recent church service at the Recovery Center, after most had left our meeting. She sought the Lord for answers. Her eyes red. […]
Do you have more questions than answers? When the result doesn’t play out like I hoped, I find my questions don’t have easy answers. So, I stop myself, for the ‘real answer’ is not about what I can do. Or didn’t do. It’s about what God can do. And is doing. He’s sovereign, and His […]
Nosey is Good I can be rather nosey. But it’s worth it when you hear what I heard earlier today at a friend’s place. My friend has just moved from the shelter a week ago, and is getting himself set up. So, I drove to his apartment to make sure he would be home tomorrow […]
One summer a few years ago, I met Pastor Cody during an outing passing out Popsicles to my homeless friends. I met him at a picnic in downtown Texarkana, and then started attending the services he held at the Bridge on Saturdays.
Life is filled with struggles. With suffering. And filled with lives who need a Shepherd. Pastor Cody is one of many pastors who have been called to the streets across this nation.
I love being a part of this journey, too. I love street ministry. I love sharing the gospel! I love my Bridge family!
The Story Isn’t the Story I trust there is a much bigger story than my own being told as I move through the day. Thus, I leave my house and go to the streets to love on folks even when the world around me announces tragedy after tragedy. But I’m reminded of scripture, “I have […]
This post is for anyone who has nearly had a wreck on the interstate, or felt like life is out of control but needs to hold on, so you can see God’s greatness. Road Trip of Missed Turns Driving in the Dallas area, I zipped along for hours in the traffic as my twin sister […]
Writing What I Live and See … this post is for the one who needs to know that “bad days” are really lessons in disguise. Losing Your Job Back then, losing a thousand dollars should have sent me searching for another job. Well, losing it now wouldn’t be such a great thing to do, either. […]
