Shoot like a Girl | Feed

He walks along the busy streets of Guatemala City. He has ten siblings, and the family struggles. He was excited to go to school this week – it was a first for him. But a strike has cancelled classes so he must work. His mother sells vegetables at the market so he carries some in a bag to sell to whoever will buy.

 

But his isn’t the story here. It’s the man next to him. Cesar could have purchased an avocado. Instead, he fed the boy. And purchased food for his siblings too. That’s what love does.

And I ask myself, who am I feeding today? I pray to be like Cesar. I pray to see the need that’s bigger than the need around me. How about you?

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.
