In The Power of God

An impossible situation, a million road blocks, and an incredible dream. A pregnant teen Cities4Life was in the midst of rescuing stood before me, on the cusp of an amazing new life. The pieces were miraculously falling in place.

This young lady had told me her dream was to be a lawyer, to help others who cannot help themselves. Given the struggles in her life and her powerlessness, it was a noble dream. Was it realistic? I don't know. But all of us need impossible dreams. If we don't, we never see the most awesome power of God displayed on our behalf.

So I gave her a gift. My son had left behind a Harvard Law sweatshirt when he went on to law school and then his career as a lawyer. He had harbored the same dream as this young lady since he was eleven-years-old.

I know the power of a dream. 

I wrapped the sweatshirt and presented it to her yesterday. When she opened the gift bag, her eyes widened. There was a moment of confusion, and then a gasp of understanding as she read the logo on the chest.

Someone believed in her.

Instantly she put the sweatshirt on. She did not speak but I knew what was in her heart, enveloped in this expression of hope and faith.
