I have always known that my gift or at least my calling from God is to be there for people or to be giving and not expect anything in return. Just recently a good friend of mine whom I have the priviledge of calling him my brother made decision that changed his whole life. You see, growing up he had it rough, being in foster care and not having his biological parents care for him, and also was taken advantage of at such a young age. I believe growing up it was hard for him to trust in God or at least give his life to Him. Couple of weeks ago he got into trouble and is due to face a tough consequence, but he choice was harmless and he being punished for it. He asked me about God and how graceful His love is. Being the person that I am I tell him what I know of God. God is loving and merciful and does not care for the msitakes we made in our life because that is how much He loves. In His eyes, God sees through us the perfection of His work. I have been feeling like I should take responsibility to help this brother of mine. He is reaching out for someone and God is who is reaching out for. I have been praying that my friend reaches out to me to get to God and to get closer. I have been praying and reading about how I can help, but it is not me who has the power at least to do that it is God. I want my friend to have a closer relationship with Him so that once everything is set and done he has no worries for his life only hope and faith that His life will turn around his name will be exalted in heaven. But right now I am stuck trying to figure out how to help this brother of mine. God lead him, give him strength and love and may your grace shower him like the waves of the sea. I may not have everything to help, but Lord I pray that you work through me to help my brother and everyone else that is reaching out for someone. No hearts should be hardened from those who are in need. I want to hear what you have to say or listen for your directions. I feel like the only thing I have to do is pray for him and try to open his eyes up towards the kingdom.
