“people doing better
people needing more
people writing letters
people get ignored
people saving money
and people saving face
people going hungry
people waste away
needed a one reason
to live in a world
where nothing is worthwhile
’til it’s gone
you spend your life moving on
people wearing nothing
and people wear it all
people scared of something
people live in doubt
people going places
and people running home
those who know what grace is
people disown
needed a one reason
to live in a world
where nothing is worthwhile
’til it’s gone
you spend your life moving on
give me the one reason
to care anymore
’cause there has got to be
a better way
a road that leads
to better days
and in the back of our minds
and corners of our eyes it lies
the reason we’re alive
and i will love you back
i’ll love you back
give the one reason
to live in a world
where nothing is worthwhile
’til it’s gone
you spend your life moving on
give me the one reason
to care anymore
’cause there has got to be
a better way
a road that leads
to better days…”

~ “people”.. by jon mclaughlin

Are you a people-watcher? I am. I love how this song talks about all sorts of different people.

It is so sad.. to see how some people are so hopeless. Yet it is interesting to notice which are hopeless and which keep their joy in the midst and sometimes in spite of their circumstances. The ones with a smile, the ones who have hope even when the world would lose it, are the ones who follow after Jesus. Have you noticed?

They are the ones who will, like Psalm 96:3 says, “declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples.”

They are the people who encourage all who see and watch them.

And this is what I have seen in this sweet family. These are hard times, yet they make it a point to keep up their family time as much as possible. They dearly love each other and Jesus. They have a smile to share whether or not they feel like it.

God uses that. He uses this kind of people, this kind of family. He blesses them. He takes care of them.

Thank you so much for your prayers and belief thus far. Keep it up, please.

And to everyone who reads this who may be on the hopeless side of life.. be encouraged as you watch this family and see what miracles God has worked and is in the midst of. 🙂

Keep praising Him in the storm, praying, and believing along with us, please. The story so far..
