God does for us what we can not do for our selves! It’s called Grace.
Some time back, I was at the county jail volunteering when I ran into this young guy. He shared why he was in jail, and it was tragic. At that point I wish I could have shared some wisdom and “fixed him.” But… it doesn’t work like that. He was hurting and damaged in a way that only God can fix. I left the jail feeling powerless. I did pray for him that night when I got home, asking God to please help him
I was sitting at home the other night when I got a phone call from a friend of mine, asking me if I would go out to our local treatment center and pick someone up and take them to a celebrate recovery meeting. I said yes, and when she told me who it was I was floored, it was the young guy from the jail meeting that I attended a couple of months previously.
So I called him and he got the clearance to go to CR that next night. I picked him up, and we talked on the way to the meeting.
When we got there I introduced him to a friend of mine that had gone down the same path that he had. They had a lot in common and shared with each other in a way I could not. Then the meeting started and the topic was Grace. It was the perfect topic and meeting for this young guy to attend, just what he needed.
I took him back to the treatment center. After dropping him off at the treatment center, on my way home – I was overwhelmed, wow what a night.
God had orchestrated things, right at the perfect time.
He did hear my prayer two months before, on that night that I had felt so powerless. God does for us what we can not do for our selves! It’s called Grace.
