I wish I had more

I Wish I Had More! By: Woodrow Lucas Hey man!! I know it's cold out here. Here is a dollar and a God Bless You. I wish I had more. Hey man!! I know that it is humiliating for you to be out here and I know that you face unkindness of all types all day long. But here is a dollar and a God Bless You. I wish I had more. Hey man!! I don't know why you are out here. I don't know if its our society's injustice, or an addiction that you can't shake, or mental illness, or a dark angel that has it out for you, or a childhood wound that torments you. But I know this is not how you envisioned your life when you were 10 years old. Hey man!! I know it's cold out here. I feel you out here man, freezing, hoping that someone shows you just a little bit of kindness. I feel you out here suffering, unaware of your own beauty and that God cherishes you as one of his best. Hey man!! I know it's cold out here. Here is a dollar and a God Bless You. I wish I had more. I wish I had a renaissance of consciousness in our society where we cared more about alleviating suffering than we care about having 3 car garages. I wish I had a revolution of inspiration where our society started healing more than we judge and started encouraging and affirming more than we criticize. I wish I had a cure for whatever berates you brother. But the truth is, that I feel inadequate to the challenge of your challenges and all I can muster is this dollar!!! But pray for me please brother. Pray that God would strengthen me so that I can speak truth to power and amass the resources to really get you the help that you need. Pray that God would equip me to heal you of what ails you. Pray my strength brother. And I will pray yours. And in the meantime just know my brother, that I see your nobility beneath the shame that our society imposes on you. I see your majesty. I see God's face smiling upon you. And I will not rest, until I am more brother. I will not rest until I am something that can truly help you. And until then, God Bless you and accept this dollar, I wish I had more!
