Yesterday we got a newspaper. This is not a regular occurrence. We do not subscribe, but occasionally the paper company will send us a free one, so we see what we’re missing.
I do enjoy reading the newspaper, occasionally. Probably more so, since I don’t read it every day.
I opened up the paper and scanned the articles on the front page.
A title caught my eye. New murder trial ordered for teen mom
I started skimming it. Teen mother….stabbing….newborn…
My heart contorts and repulses.
How could she?
What kind of person…
I wanted to stop reading. Maybe I should just toss this “news” in the trash.
I don’t want to see any more.
God enters in.
What kind of person?
A person like you.
You were that kind of person.
You were that sinner.
That could be you.
But God. But Grace came in.
So, I sit. I ponder.
I pray to my God.
I thank him for His saving grace.
I pray for this girl who has not experienced yet.
