Today, I am thankful for a man (we will call him David). We met him at a local shelter and he shared his lifestory with us. He has not had an easy life, in fact, he share with us how his bad decisions had wrecked his life. He's lost all he has, his home, his wife, his two children.
Then he shared how a few years ago, he came to believe in Jesus. Five years later, he doesn't have his life completely back together but he is making progress. In fact, he still has no place to call his own, but he has just started a job, only two weeks ago. He is not back with his wife but he has been able to see his kids a little bit and ... and he is wearing the most peaceful smile on his face.
He has hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 Lives in this man. I was so blessed to meet him.
