I saw a man today.

I saw a man today.  He was in his 40's, blue shirt, jeans, white ball cap, and sneakers that were untied.   He had a makeshift cane, his back was bent and he was having a hard time walking.  He was making his way down the sidewalk, I was stopped at a stop sign.  My heart was moved with compassion as I looked at him, I couldn't help but be moved with tears.  All I could see is how he was meant to be. Tall, straight back, and walking with long, strong strides.  I thought about Jesus.  Perfect Jesus. How he would feel as he looked upon broken, hurting people and saw them in the spirit, as they were meant to be. 

My final thought as I drove away...it is my life goal to discover how to unlock all the power inside my spirit and release it into the world.  To lay hands on the sick and see them healed. To see broken backs become straight. To see legs come into alignment. I wished I was a better vessel.  But quickly reminded myself, it is not about me.  All I can be is a willing earthen vessel. To God be the glory.  I will see the sick recover by my hands through the power of Jesus Christ!
