God, Why?

"Sometimes I would like to ask God why He allows poverty, suffering and injustice when He could do something about it."

"Well, why don't you ask Him?"

"Because I am afraid He would ask me the same question."

Nashville's Room in the Inn is an amazing place. Check out how you can help here:  You can talk to Hillary Barnett about starting any sort of class. Just commit. One hour a week, week in, week out. They know when you don't make it.

Today's bible study take-aways:

1) From Mr. A: "Abraham didn't understand the power of the one, he should have negotiated with God down to one man, and I bet God would have saved the whole town for one." Deep. This guy could probably quote the entire bible and loves Jesus. Looked a little like Jesus too. I pray he gets totally free from alcohol.

2) From Mr. C: "If you and your husband ever think about getting divorced again, pick you a bridge." He walked me all the way to the door (and we didn't even talk about divorce today, just how unforgiveness may impact their dreams coming true). He said, "Pick one that makes you feel really scared because it is dangerous. You can't bring anything to stay warm. You just bring each other. You'll find out what is really important."  Deep.

3) Mr. M even got engaged this week. He got his CDL license re-instated last week and got a job, so he called up an old flame and asked her to marry him. They are going for a long engagement to save money because he wants her to have a real wedding. That's hope.

Love these men! Get involved. Somewhere. Because the bible says so.
