Daily Prompt: Imagine

The next time you’re in a public place — a coffeehouse, a park, a store — observe the people around you. Pick a person, a couple, or a group, and imagine what their lives might be like.

The man hanging out in the shadow of the pay telephone next to the Circle K store.
It is 107F and he has on a long sleeved flannel shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

He is wearing long sleeves to keep the sun off his skin. 3 years ago he had skin cancer on his arm and he doesn’t want anymore. He is a roofer by trade but he hurt his back and can’t work right now. So he is hanging around the Circle K wishing to buy a cold drink, but doesn’t have the money. He wants to ask for money from people going by but is too embarrassed. He wishes he had cigarettes too. Tonight he will go back to the apartment he shares with 2 other guys and hope someone has dinner. They work at Labor Ready and get paid daily, when there is work. Some days they don’t get work and then it’s just tough luck. He doesn’t have a car right now because he sold it to pay his rent. He has no idea what to do to make his life better. He can’t get unemployment because he can’t work. He can’t get disability because his injury isn’t permanent or expected to last a year. He should get better eventually, but doesn’t know when. He’s hungry. “Hmmmm” he thinks to himself, “there is a lady in a wheelchair and a little girl. Her purse is dangling off of the arm of the chair, I could grab it, I bet no one would catch me, nobody else is around…” He thinks on it, then, “No, I’d better not start doing that, where would it end?”


How I felt when I realized my husband was abusive and didn’t really love me and how I felt when I got divorced some years later was devastated and tricked. As a Christian, I believed in marriage lasting forever and the mate was also a soul mate.  When I think about it now I still get that empty feeling when I realized it wasn’t going to be true in my case. I am still single and don’t have a boyfriend. But I am also handicapped now and don’t go out or work so it’s kind of hard to meet friends and boyfriends. I go to church but that isn’t a dating service! I rely on the verse about the peace of God passing understanding. Also the verse about everything working out for good for those called by God. I love to praise God! That is what heals me when I am broken up again about life circumstances. Praising God feels heavenly! Somewhere the Bible says that God lives in the praises of His people. Praise has healing and uplifting power. It is medicine for the soul.

Philippians 4:6-8 New Living Translation (NLT)

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
