I met an older woman this week that broke my heart. Her husband who loves her so works out of town and she lives here in Astoria. She is a vibrant soul who loves all who enter her doors, always willing to give what she has to make their lives better.
But she is abused.
With her spouse gone many offer to help her with different needs but the truth us most of them are only doing so for their benefit. Helping only makes them feel good about themselves. They care little for her real needs.
Though she has never hurt anyone, she is often the target of peoples pain being blamed for a multitude of problems, even the lack of world peace.
Many come in and out of her life depending upon whats best for them. Few ever really think about her.
She is so loving that she just wants to take in everyone under her roof but many who live with her won't allow it making life difficult for those who don't live in her house their way.
At times she needs support but rarely does she get it. People eat cake while offering her crumbs.
Some even go so far as to Beat on her for no reason at all.
I wonder, how does her Husband feel about all of this?
Mark 13:34-37 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house (where His Bride Is) , and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Would you Pray for her?
Would you Pray for those who might be irresponsible towards her?
