Four Choices That Require Trust
Posted By Katy Causey On February 26, 2013 @ 12:17 am In Employees and Culture | 2 Comments
She curled up in a small ball, nestled against me. This tiny girl in the middle of Mathare Valley melted my heart. A small yawn, and then her breathing slowed to a steady rhythm.
In the middle of the noise and chaos around us, she felt comfortable enough to fall asleep in my lap. A simple gesture, a gesture of trust.
What choices requiring trust allowed this moment for me and my little friend in Kenya?
Living in Mathare Valley can erode trust. Yet each child who cautiously crosses the threshold of the center discovers that here it is safe to trust. Here these children can drop their guard and experience love and comfort.
Because of the trust of God’s people, He gives us these beautiful moments of redemption in broken valleys.
Trust me when I tell you that I could have stayed with that little girl all day long. But I had to leave her. And I trust with all my heart that she is in good, loving hands.
