An Encouraging Word

The time is nearing and my head has been spinning! I have been feeling very inadequate for such an adventure. Then I open "Reflections for Ragamuffins" this morning and find that the writing for this day is written just for me! Jesus has joined me in this walk and limps right alongside me. The Word became flesh!
Now we are both limping? Yes. Not from a handicap or inadequacy, but from a battle. A battle that is hard, but where one is still standing at the end of it!

The Beginning

The girl who formally was known by the name "Much Afraid", with her limp and crooked little mouth, has received a new name from her Good Shepherd that He is disclosing to her gradually each day. She is now on a glorious adventure with the One Who loves her unconditionally. It is her desire to never forget what He has done for her and to carry this Good News for all people wherever He leads her!
