God's Plans...

As we walked up to church yesterday am....
we were greeted by a family of hungry and tired looking folks. 
They held a sign asking for help and food. 
At first I thought I was being Jesus Juked .
Would I stop? Would anyone? 
Was this McNitzky in disguise?

 There was a little boy with them, sitting on the "flicking his Bic" as he looked at the people. 
Yes- that was happening. 

Were they scammers? Who knows.
Did it matter? Not to me.
They didn't speak English- so I am not sure what all they understood as people walked by. 
I just pray they left here with the understanding that we wanted them to live the life God intended for them to live.
God doesn't intend for them to be hungry.
God doesn't intend for them to be tired.
God doesn't intend for them to be sad or hopeless.
He wants more for them than a bag full of grape jelly, Mac and Cheese.

He wants the same things for you.
And for me. 

Not just the "houseless" and down trodden. 
If you are reading this in your million dollar home- or sitting on a bus bench...
you have something in common.
God promises you both, the very same thing.

God has great plans for you 
He promises that He has plans for you.
He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you. 
Plans to give you hope and a future.

We all need these plans. Not one class over the other. 

Thank You God for your plans you have for each and every one of us.  

In His Dust,
