Shoot like a Girl | Grace (#31days)

Day 15: Jinja, Uganda

We listened to the symphony of birdsong under the brilliant Ugandan morning sky at the guest house where he worked as a guard. He told me about the doves that sound like drumbeats, and we did our best to spot bursts of color hiding in the trees.

And then he told me a story, about a man who robbed a pastor at gunpoint. The pastor was fearless in the face of danger – rather than run or fight, he told the man about Jesus. And he forgave him.

And then, he hired him. To work at the guest house.

That’s what grace does. I long to be grace-full.

Where have you seen grace?

About Ronne Rock

YOU ARE GOD'S HAND-CRAFTED DESIGN. AND I WANT TO CELEBRATE YOU.

We're in this together, and I am for you. I secure road signs with a hammer of hope, and clear the debris so they can be seen. I am your encourager. I walk and keep walking. Cheer and keep cheering. I invest, dive deep, and cherish most the stories being written in the lives of women who believe restoration is a reality on earth as it is in heaven. God holds the pen in those stories, “That one - I hold her. And that one - she is My delight. And that one - never snatched away.”  I am a mouthpiece of celebration for women. Redemption is our song. You can find even more encouragement in  "For You, Love" the prayer journals that invite you to respond, and in Everbloom, a collection of stories from the Redbud Writers Guild. I'm currently writing One Woman Can Change the World, set to publish late spring 2020 (Revell). I'm honored to be represented by Credo Communications.
