Isaiah 57:14-15

God says, “REBUILD THE ROAD! Clear away the rocks and stones so my people can return from captivity!”
The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this: “I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I RESTORE THE THE CRUSHED SPIRIT OF THE HUMBLE AND REVIVE THE COURAGE OF THOSE WITH REPENTANT HEARTS.”

I hope you get out of this what I got. It says, “Clear away the rocks and stones”… To me that says help get rid of barriers that prevent someone from being free from their bondage/addiction. Did you get that?
Also, do you get that Jesus dwells in the presence of those who’s spirits are crushed and humbled? And that it is a high and holy place! Who ever thought that being with the broken, homeless, addicted, and humbled person could bring the presence of God? Do they have a lot of work ahead of them? Yes! Of course they do. They also have MANY barriers to overcome and it’s up to us stronger, more grounded Christ followers to help remove them.

    I am so glad that God gives us the outlet of loving service or I would bust from all the gratitude I have for His mercy and grace! Thanks for your beautiful writing. It is a blessing to me.
