God is a bridge builder. He is connecting people. We should expect that He will give us bridges to cross. If we truly believe that God is sovereign, then we should expect Him to connect us to the people He is calling us to love. And in creating those connections, God uses us as we are and where we are; even in our frailty and weakness. Sometimes we stand up as a leader, an example of courage and strength. Other times we connect with people who are hurting and in pain, or who feel lost. Sometimes it happens when our children score the winning goal in a soccer game. Sometimes it happens when we are afraid, as in an emergency room, or when we are deep in grief at a funeral home. God weaves all of this together—the bridge building; our mental, emotional, and spiritual condition; our circumstances—to place us in the right place at the right time to love our neighbors.
