When I pulled up today to pick Todd up from tennis practice, I noticed that a little guy on the team was sitting against the fence holding his racket and crying. Todd was kneeling down in front of him and I could hear the words, “You’re getting better. Keep trying.”
After a few minutes, Todd helped him up and off they trotted back to the court.
As I sat there reflecting on that moment in time, I knew that God was somehow redeeming the hurt in Todd’s life by allowing him to reach out and help someone else who was hurting.
I just love how God works.
If only in those moments of deep pain, rejection, and hurt, we could remember that God is working to create in us a “new thing.”
