Every time I talk with this young woman or try to meet the need, God speaks and says "I'm not asking you to save her. Just love her. Look her in the eyes and listen." My know it all flesh wants to shake her and tell her exactly how her decisions are affecting her life and her son's ... and sometimes I give in to the flesh And say too much with my "fix it" mentality. But God is merciful ... and she keeps calling, so hopefully today when I meet her at the bus stop, I will love her and listen to God's voice instead of my annoyed one.

I don't mean to act frustrated
A young woman in Chiquimula calls us a lot. Every time she calls, I know there is a need - A financial need, a need for clothes, a need for medicine, a "can you meet me" need. My human nature struggles within me when I see her number on my phone. The "don't answer" voice screams in my head. Know what voice I'm talking about?
