A Hug from Heaven

Yesterday was great. We get used to our trips out to the streets and sometimes it can just be a routine we go through. Yesterday God reminded us why we’re here.
We pulled up to our last stop and there was a crowd of kids. We handed out the sandwiches and the ice cold lemonade, along with the Word, greeting and chatting with them all. One of the boys grabbed me and said, “There’s two kids over there, but they’re too ashamed to come get food.” So, I grabbed some sandwiches and juice and went to them.

“You don’t have to be shy or ashamed,” I said. “This food is from God and there is plenty. Eat all you want.”
The two boys just stared at me for a bit. Finally, one said, “We’ve been out since early this morning and we haven’t eaten. We just said, “God, if You care, please send us some food.”
In one quick second, our focus got readjusted, our resolve was strengthened and we felt heaven’s arms embracing us and reassuring us. He is here. He is real. And He can use us in all our weakness.

… I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be). (‭Matthew‬ ‭28‬:‭20‬ AMP)


  1. Wherever we are, we forget so easily why we have anything at all. And no matter what we are doing, we easily forget that we are “channels only”, if only we will allow the Lord to use us. What a nice way for you to be reminded that the work you are doing is, in fact, an answer to prayer.

  2. Louvado seja o Senhor!
    Estas experiencias nos ajudam a continuar fazendo aquilo para o que Ele nos chamou.
