Talking To A Stranger


Talking To A Stranger
By Joanne Standfield

I felt led to tell a stranger today
 that Jesus loves her so,

then to my amazement the tears began to flow.

She told me her story 
of heartache and loneliness,

of how she had no friends 
and her life was such a mess.

She’d lost her only daughter 
to drugs several years before,

and now due to an abusive relationship had to go to court.

I took a chance and stepped out 
not something I’d usually do,

but oh what a blessing
 ended up flowing to me too!

This woman grabbed and hugged me, 
her countenance had changed,

for now she knew God did love her; 
this appointment, He’d arranged!
