A person who attends our drop-in ministry 3 days a week shared with me a disturbing dream she had about her son. It left her feeling unsure about his physical and spiritual condition. She asked me if I would try to find him, as she had not spoken with him for about seven years due to a variety of circumstances. We prayed that God would help us find him and that God would minister to him physically and spiritually.
All I had to go on was the name of the establishment that he worked for. In moving forward in faith trusting in God we were able to find her son and also discovered that he was doing quite well. His circumstances had improved greatly over the seven years of no communication. God answered this lady’s prayer and started her on the path of reconciliation with her son by initiating that desire for reconnection within her via a dream.
God wants to reconnect with us as well. Maybe we have strayed from communication with Him, but he is always reaching out to us, trying to bring us back into communing with Him. The ultimate example of this was when He became a human being and came to this earth to seek and save those who were lost. He is still on the mission of reconnecting with us. At Union Gospel Mission, we let our patrons know that God is still looking to reconnect with them. He has made that possible by sending His Son to take the penalty for sin we deserve, freeing us to walk under His blessing.
