It is so easy to get so involved in our lives that it makes it easy to forget how others live.
Last night, on the way home from church, we passed a lady on the side of the road waving her arms frantically trying to flag us down. We stopped to see what was the matter.
The man she was living with had gotten violent and had been hitting her, and she wanted a way out of the house.
In the end, she decided to have us just go on, since we were going in the opposite direction and she didn’t want to use our phone to call someone.
It broke my heart. She looked so young and was obviously scared to death. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live her life. Yet I am well aware that her way of life is common for so many other women as well.
It opened my eyes a little more to the way things are in the world today. I have Christ, a loving husband, and a great church to help me through the trials in my life. . .but this girl. . .she had nobody.
There might not be anything I can actually do to help her and others like her, but I can at least show Christ to people!
