I can’t tell you how much it haunts me to get a phone call like I did tonight. It’s almost becoming too much for my heart to answer this question the same way.
“Carissa, I have someone here that needs a place to stay.
Are you open yet? Do you know anyone who has openings?”
She might be able to leave the area and find a place to stay.
Why is this so complicated? Why can’t I move faster? Why do I feel like I’m barking up the wrong trees and chasing rabbits down holes that don’t lead anywhere? Why can’t I get Sparrow up and running?
I sure have my calendars all lined up with great content, emails, tweets, and facebook posts but I can’t find a freaking couch for a homeless expecting teen.
I have some really fun and unique events scheduled to help promote this invisible house but meanwhile a young woman’s life is falling apart.
I have some great pledge cards turned in but as Joe Sangl says I can’t cash a pledge card.
I have a sexy business plan, strategic plan, and development plan all mapped out however a young couple is staring at each other tonight scared out of their minds.
I’ve laid out some cute outfits to wear when I meet some of St. Charles finest this month to try and convince them to fund my vision but I also have mounds of cute baby clothes just sitting in a storage unit.
My heart is heavy, my shoulders are burdened, my spirit is tired. However, my frustrations do not detract from God’s promises and faithfulness.
He will open the doors I need opening. He is guiding me down the path I need to go on. This is too much for me but not too much for Him. I know I am taken care and that His eye is on these sparrows tonight as well.
