I was leading a Bible study for incarcerated teens when I noticed a boy sitting alone two tables away. He was looking the other direction, but his ear was toward me. After awhile he moved to a closer table, still looking another direction, but his ear was toward me.
Toward the end of the lesson he looked at me directly and I motioned for him to come over. I said, “I’m just finishing with these guys, but I’d like to talk with you.”
I spent nearly an hour with this precious, fearful 15-year-old who poured out his sad story, and then opened his heart to Jesus. He went to his room with hope, a smile and a new awareness of God’s love and forgiveness.
Thank you God for healing hearts!

[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
