To those who are second,
Just a note of reflection to encourage you along the way…
A story. I listen, I watch, their voice trails off in reflection. The face turns downward, the shame, the sorrow. I enter into their story drawn like a magnet. There is an awkward silents as pain is put into words. Their eyes tell volumes, and in milliseconds I know how they feel.
It is in that moment the face breaks into the smile. Changed from broken to a face that shines brighter than living color. Dramatically their story radiates through them penetrating into my heart on the other side of the glass.
Another story waits holding the truth of darkness and His light. So many stories calling on the name of Jesus can not be ignored. Unknown to the listener they have down loaded the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ onto their cerebrum cortex that can not be erased.
I plan on sharing these stories with the young men I work with who are in darkness. I cannot get away from thinking you will hear His words… "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”
I am second,
