These are my friends. These are Midlanders. People with names, and feelings, and souls.
It is hard to imagine what it must feel like to lose so much and on top of that be without a home out in the cold and rain. I often wonder if the hope I have in Christ would be such a comfort to me if I were freezing, suffering, and alone, but then I look to His word which promises in Psalm 34:18, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit”. I believe it with all my heart.
