Over the years I have invited them to come over for coffee and a chat but it has never happened, but this week I bumped into Sue up the street, gave her a lift home and we had a wonderful chat. Sue is quite a broken lady but has such a desire to live for Jesus but has a real struggle with alcohol.
Ever since I was born again at 16 most of my absolute closest friends have been drug addicts, alcoholics and mentally ill people. I love being around them and with them and I literally sense God pouring His love into me then through me and into these people.
Joshua & Grace were both so excited to have Dane come over and they were beautiful hosts for their young friend. Sue & I had the most blessed time together and she said 'I am so happy to be here, I have tears of happiness'. Sue had to go off and clean a holiday house just around the corner and Dane stayed with us all afternoon, which was just so wonderful.
One day when I was 17 I was out doing something and I was really busy and I rushed past a person whom I had been reaching out to at the time and right at that moment the Lord stopped me in my tracks and dropped a word into my spirit, He said "don't ever be too busy for people, don't rush past".
I have no doubt that heaven brought Sue & I together on Thursday and to me these moments are the best 'suddenlys' that could take place.
The Lord loves people so much and I don't ever want to be too busy for the broken hearted.
Out of respect and privacy I have used different names
