One of my closest friends has seen more in the last 24 hours than anyone should experience in his/her sixteen years. I am shocked at what he has experienced and my heart aches for him and the family that has been affected by what they have seen.
My small group leader told me that I was placed in his life 'for such a time as this', as it is stated in the book of Esther. But what can I do? I am a mere girl, helping an older boy with struggles I haven't faced myself, sights and images that I cannot fathom coming face to face with. But I know that I am here, I am in his life for a reason, and I have a purpose in being in this situation.
It will all come clear in time.
I know it will.
I have to trust that it will.
