Mondays, “her and I" also attend the New Converts Class, Tuesday nights Bible Studies and I’m hoping to talk her into quire Practice on Thursdays.
But there’s a dress code; the clothes that she wears are definitely not appropriate. So I’m going to have to work some kind of twist, pray for a miracle and convince her to change her clothes.
That’s exactly what it’s going to take, is a miracle.
She’s a beautiful young woman but through out the years of abuse and neglect her life just got tough. All the hurt and a life of unending pain that she endured left some open wounds and deep scars, that dramatically changed her appearance.
In church, “you couldn’t miss her".
The first thought that would probably come to mind would be “who’s that?” She looks like a hoodlum, maybe a gangster or is that a boy or a girl?
But focused and very much in love with Jesus she carried no shame, she praised him singing, she danced around and would lift her hands high with such dedication and devotion.
The clothes she wore, were “two” sizes bigger 501 jeans, a thermo under her white t-shirts some tennie shoes and her hair pulled back in a pony-tail.
Sometimes she’d feel out of place, but she always said GOD say’s “come as you are", and she did just that .
She is a very beautiful woman that enjoys praising god with all her heart. You could see and feel the love and sincerity she had for the lord.
She’s full of knowledge and loves to teach and preach the word of god. She is very loving, kind very wise and always spoke the truth even if it hurt. Good with godly counsel very well disciplined and very stern on her beliefs.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at days to come.
She often would laugh and tell jokes about, how one day she was going to write a book, “come out on the Oprah show and talk about how god changed her life, of course her friends would laugh with her, say she was crazy. But down deep inside she was serious about success.
All her friends knew her as a mighty woman of god or a soldier for the Lord. Others would get intimidated by her appearance, maybe even judge her. But she didn’t mind it, she wasn’t easily distracted. She sang, danced around, and worshiped the Lord.
Regardless her appearance and the style of clothes she chose to wear she was always happy, most impotently this woman had a passion for pleasing the Lord.
She always said she wanted to touch the lives of many and save the lost souls,"I believe she did just that".
One day I ask her, “are you afraid of change?” She said no.
I believe down deep inside she’s a scared little girl. "How do I know?"
"I know, Because that little girl is me.
