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 […]
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 […]
Small Steps of Friendship I’ve known this homeless man for a couple of years. He goes to jail. And then, he is released. So, he’ll turn up. Only to, disappear again. Usually, I seek him out, speaking to him first as he has never approached me, until last week. On my outing the other day, […]
Writing What I Live and See … this post is for the one who needs a “dent” of hope to lighten the day. Dents Come Stopping at the stop sign, I glanced for someone to speak to, to pray with, to love on for the Lord. Then in seconds, this long-legged, lanky man on a […]
Writing What I Live and See … this post if for anyone who wonders if God is with them. Mission In Place I drove to town to pay for a room for a friend who was riding in late on the train. She needed a room for one night, and she had plans to check […]
A Friend Under a Bridge This post is for anyone who has said goodbye to a friend … and who hates goodbyes. I pulled up to his place and texted him, parking, waiting in the alley. Then my phone rang. It was my friend. He was on his way, walking. So, I asked what street […]
