Different yet Amazingly the Same!

Have you ever stared across the room at someone & thought to yourself 'They're so different from me!' & then come to realize 'They're amazingly the same!'

That happened at Two by Two's Sept. Prayer Time at Memphis Union Mission. We prayed with new residents at the Mission (who had just come off the streets and acknowledged they could no longer do this on their own).

As we prayed we too realized there are many things in our City and in our own lives that we cannot do in our own strength.

One Resident anxiously said 'Today's my first day here' and clutching his hands my friend said 'It's my first day too!' As he expressed he wasn't quite sure how to pray, she encouraged him - I don't really know how to pray either but I just talk to Jesus and I know He hears my heart!'

I'm not quite sure who was blessed more by this sweet prayer time together. As they prayed they realized, perhaps their stuggles were Different but in many ways they were Amazingly the Same!

Jesus continues to show us how very much we have in common and the amazing gift of learning from one another! The question is - Are YOU unwrapping that gift?? Don't waste another day - unwrap it and we promise you'll be Amazed!

I am wild, crazy about Jesus and I think anyone who comes to know Him closer is a much better person for it! Not to mention that He will totally change your life and give you 'Life Abundant!' which the Bible talks about in John 10:10. I think Jesus loved to laugh and a day without laughter is a day wasted!! Ask Jesus to reveal Himself to you... then sit back and watch expectantly...
