Jar of Feathers

img_0733I keep a jar of white feathers in my office. When I meet with a teenage girl or woman who is struggling, hurting, or just seeking answers, I give them a feather to remind them of Psalm 91:4.

He will cover you in His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:4

Over the past few months I have been learning about Human Trafficking. I have talked with many, including law enforcement, organizations fighting against trafficking and some victims as well. While I am unsure exactly how to get involved and where to start, there is one thing I do know. God knows where to start. He loves these dear ones more than I ever can. So I will start today… in Prayer.
As I look at my jar of feathers I’m reminded I can pray for these children and women right now that they will be protected, saved from the horrors of slavery and drawn closer to God. I can pray for the organizations working with these precious ones and I can pray for the hearts of their captors and abusers. That they would turn their life around. I can pray that those in slavery today would be freed. I can pray that they would be covered in the love of Jesus, covered in His grace, covered in His feathers.
