#52: Restoring My Faith in People

Posted: April 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

A couple days ago I was driving to work at around 4am.  It was still dark outside and it was pouring rain.  As I was driving, I saw a Hummer in the other lane of oncoming traffic suddenly squeal and u-turn into my lane in front of me.  He was still a ways up front and then he just stopped and put his high beams on.  I couldn’t see what the commotion was so I switched lanes and slowed to see an elderly person in a walker, shivering, soaked to the bone, and completely disoriented.  I stopped.  The driver from the Hummer got out.  He looked to be in his forties, and he grabbed an umbrella and shielded the woman who looked so lost.

I got out of the car and asked if he needed help, and he told me everything was alright and that he thought he could handle it.  I cried all the way to work.

Lately, I’ve been frustrated with people in general, but that morning God reminded me why he puts so much trust in us to build His Kingdom.  He restored my faith in people.

He also reminded me that there plenty of lost folks out there that need God’s loving touch – God’s people need to stay alert, awake, and go to love on people.

I have yet to update about my awesome Cali trip, which was indeed AWESOME.  I shall soon. I got slammed with things the minute I got home.  It’s been quite hectic, but in a good way.

But I just HAD to share this with everybody. Love it.
