Fell in the Forest and No One Heard.
A tree fell in the forest and no one heard it.
It happens all the time. New roots can’t always withstand the storm.
Knuckled roots twisted around clods of earth, clutching the hope on the edge of a slippery slope.
But you come alongside and you see it…her… him….them.
You don’t pass by the fallen.
Don’t pass by the fallen.
The Spirit that rose Him from the dead …is in you… so you fall back.
You stop and you gather the workers.
You come alongside and you encourage the broken down…
The one about to abandon an amazing dream…
The family who is just trying to hold it together…
The friend who is trying to keep her chin up during family crisis…
The breadwinner who can’t imagine how they can make the ends meet even one more time…
That brother who thinks he can’t do one more semester…
That friend who is one chapter away from the best book ever…
You hold the space.
You make the call.
You bring the meal.
You hold the hand.
You smile sincere.
You pray the prayers they can’t .
You hold up what can’t stand any longer.
Because He loves relationship… and He often brings you as the Provision for someone else.
He brought you here.
It is all about something so much bigger than you… than them…
You push your shoulder into that space… and you hold it for them…so they can breathe.
