A Special Girl

I have never felt such an instant connection to anyone. We meet people all the time, and I have never met anyone like her. Brock happened to select her to come onstage yesterday in Barrhead, Canada and he felt a tugging toward her. After the show, I just happened to stay with Brock at the table where he was signing autographs. (I am using the word "happened" a lot when it's more like divinely orchestrated.)

He pointed out a girl across the lobby and told me to stick around to talk with her. When the crowd began to dissipate, we pulled her aside and told her that the Lord put her on our heart. We told her that we were praying for her. She began to cry and said that she needed prayer. She then began to tell us how her life was falling apart around her. She had no hope. Her circumstances looked rather dim, so the only hope we could give her was Jesus. She responded to this and said that she needed to run to Him. She also made the statement that maybe we had come there that night to save her life.

Brock went back out to the table, and I continued to talk with her. She told me more details about her situation. I found myself hugging her several times. I just wanted to hold her and tell her that everything was going to be alright. I am not an affectionate person, so this was very unusual. Right before we said goodbye for the last time, she said, "I wish that you were my mom." I about lost it, because at that point, I wished that I was her mom as well.

Wow, what an amazing appointment God orchestrated there! I am so glad you guys were able to touch this girl's heart through His love.

That was a great encounter--fitting for Mother's Day weekend. Everyone needs a mother, or mother figure. I have several that are like second moms to me. You can never have too many people to love you like a mom.

You may not be here mom, but you are her sister and so am I! Thank you for bringing this new family member to Jesus!
