truly amazing

The season of quarantine, staying at home, and not interacting with loved ones has been tough on many, including the youth in Eagle Point. One Tuesday morning as I was getting ready to head to 71Five, I received a call from a number I didn’t recognize. I answered to the unsteady voice of a young girl who was struggling. She said she knew me through 71Five Campus in Eagle Point but for reasons I still do not know, decided to keep her identity to herself. I cannot disclose much about the conversation but I can tell you the eternal effect it would have on this girl’s life. Right away I could tell she was in need of some loving guidance and we ended up texting all throughout the day about Jesus and who He is. How He’s given life to so many, including myself and how He could give her the same life, joy, and love. By the end of the conversation she said she wanted to have what I had. She said she wanted a relationship with Jesus Christ who purifies her and washes her white as snow. She asked me to help her ask God to come into her life and save her and at that moment I celebrated because I knew I had a new sister in Christ.
I still don’t know who this young girl is but it doesn’t matter, God does. It’s truly amazing the God of the universe knows each of us by name, and makes it possible to find joy when the world offers none. This high school girl will now live forever in the Spirit and find true joy in Christ’s love, even through the hard times life brings.
