Intentionally Spreading His HIV!
A neighbor man...
Bragging in his drunken state.
“I have spread my HIV to so-and-so and to so-and-so and to so-and-so.” As he loudly proclaimed the names of women he had slept with, the anger in the community heightened.
He was a predator - and now everyone knew. He was dying of a disease and his goal was to share the pain with as many as possible.
He preyed on hungry mamas, enticing them with a bag of food with which to feed their children. And many had given in to him.
The ladies took matters into their own hands. They joined together and mobbed him - smashing him with a rock in a way that he won’t ever spread his disease again...
The painful thing to me was hearing the list of mama’s that he had slept with...
Ladies we know...
One even a member of Girls With Vision!
And I feel weak in my knees!
I don’t even know where to go ... but I do realize this!
I NEED to be praying for each of these ladies just as I do for my own children!
* Godly wisdom, for them to know the depth of Christ’s love for them
*Favor, with God and others
*A spirit of excellence, to do all things as unto the Lord
*A desire to know God more deeply than anything else in their lives
*Direction, discernment and protection as they go about each moment of their day
*Godly friends and spouse
*Respect toward authority

Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the GOOD way is, and WALK in it, and you will find REST for your souls.
