Christina Wing I wanted to share this…My husband saw a homeless woman on the corner yesterday, he went by and was eating at Mcdonalds. He felt a gentle pull to buy her lunch and go talk to her. As he approached she was hiding something behind her. He gave her all the money he had and the lunch.
As he was walking away he said “the Lord loves you”..she replied “who”? He said “Jesus”…to that she said “I don’t go to church, and I smoke. I am from Arizona and escaped my abusive husband.” My husband pulled his ciggerate out and said “look I smoke too”, and I don’t go to church either. But I know God loves you and me and He is with you”. She replied “yes He is”. She asked for a hug and he gave her one.
This profoundly struck me and him. A hug, a meal, and the the reassurence of the love of God. This is a moment we will never forget as well as her. She didn’t just hear about Jesus she encountered Him.
