The topic of my hymnal page is deep. The girl behind bars is my sister in Christ. I first met her in my neighborhood about a year ago. She is not only jailed physically right now, she has been imprisoned emotionally and spiritually her whole life. I desire for her to be free. She is healing now, but I look with hope upon that day when she will be totally free of the bondage.
I pray that when you see an undesirable person that you look not on their outward appearance or behavior, but look beneath. Most often there is a person who has been physically or emotionally abused or abandoned. There is a little child inside who desperately wants love, but doesn’t know what it looks like anymore.
This woman has taken up residence in our neighborhood park. How would you react?
This hymnal page is not only in response to my heart, but is also a part of the latest Salt challenge, From the Hymnbook. Somehow, when I was completing this page, the challenge seemed so insignificant. My heart is sad.
