Today I’m just putting one foot in front of the other. I have no great new ideas and no special abilities for getting kids off the street. I woke up feeling weary, and these streets seem dingier than ever.

We have this little pep talk routine, Mark and I; we remind each other of God’s Promises and the blessings we’ve seen. We look back over the years and count the things that God has done.

But this morning–amazingly!–it was a street kid who put me back on track. He said, “You do your part.”

It’s that simple. Our part is to tell them the sweet story of Jesus, and love them with His Love. And keep doing that, no matter what, day after day. The blessing is God’s part.

If you know me at all, you know I’m not very coordinated. So, I need to focus on each step or I’ll trip on all the things that are in the way. I need to concentrate on God’s Word, and I need to keep my eyes on the goal: the blessing that God promises. IF we do not quit.

So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9 HCSB)


  1. LOVE. We do what we can control and God does the rest. Love you both and what you are doing with your lives.

  2. What a wonderful message! That applies to all of us, no matter what we are facing. I want to let you know that was a blessing to me today.
    Praying for you in your labor.

  3. praying for you my sweet friend! you and mark are certainly doing your part!
