My daughter-in-law showed me this article when we get back from Busch Gardens yesterday. I think she thought I'd love it; however, I'm not sure she can fully understand why I did.
Here's the article:
If you have ever been in a difficult situation (whether it be financial or personal), and people show up to help (in ways you could have never imagined or expected), you can relate to this story. As a matter of fact, you will NEVER forget YOUR story. And when you read stories like this, your mind will return to that place/time/memory in your own life and you will feel those same emotions. (At least I pray you will - I pray someone was there for you too!)
I am so thankful for the numerous people God placed in my path over the years. When I stop to think about who they were (aside from family and co-workers I have a very special bond with), they all lead to one common denominator: Northside Christian Church. I have been touched in so many ways by so many members, I can't begin to list them all! Some offered prayers, some offered money, some offered friendship, some offered song, some offered leadership, some offered the opportunity to grow, the list goes on and on and on....
Is every member of our Church body Christ like? Probably not. Is every member perfect? No, not one! Have my feelings ever been hurt by members of Northside? Yes. Has satan used my pain to trick me and keep me from attending? You bet he has! But I am so thankful JESUS keeps sending me back; so I can be filled again! I am so thankful.
